I was going to just seam two pieces of fabric together and call it good.
But that doesn’t help me use up a lot of the older “Deep Stash” that has been lingering a long time – I want to clear out the blue “use it up” cubby!
There are pieces from a half yard up to two yards in this pile….and I want them gone.
The Wonky Wishes quilt Measures 80 “ X 94” so I think I can use up quite a bit, right?
I’m thinking of piecing in columns…..maybe brick style..large chunky pieces and maybe even throw in some “blue” orphan blocks from the orphan bin for interest.
The top near my blue pile…I like how the blue looks with it!
How OLD are some of these pieces anyway? Time to go!
I think this is going to be fun!
And here’s another hint for you….
This is the outside edge of the string sashing – can you see how I stay stitched it, just a bit narrower than 1/4” all the way around? This will keep any pesky seams from coming undone in the layering and quilting and binding process ---it’s worth the time it takes to stay stitch.
I do this with all my quilts that have pieced borders, be it a checkerboard, triangles, piano keys, or strings…..stay stitch those suckers into place so they do not pop open!
I’m off to the airport to meet The Hubster…he is coming home from his business trip and returning a rental car ---I missed his birthday while I was gone to Kentucky and Tennessee – so there is a birthday dinner in store tonight, and then I’ll be figuring out what I am going to do with this!
Stay tuned ---
