Here it is on my design wall. The lovely strips are actually pinned up, right over the top of another WIP ...
|Summer Gathering, my work-in-progress. The straggler blocks are from Add-a-Border, awaiting my additions..|
This 'kit' was bundled with a booth purchase. It had no pattern, just a whole lot of 2.5" squares and pre-cut triangles to make more squares. The fabrics are exactly what many quilters have been trying to avoid for years now, possibly from JoAnn's or whatever. Not something I want to put in my Etsy shop, but they fit perfectly with my mission to "save the cottons!", hehe.
I completed most of the HST's as leaders and enders over the past 5 or 6 months. They seemed to go on and on, but one day, woo-lah! - they were done! I still had no plan for these - it was near Easter time, and I thought I would do some sort of baskets. Playing with them was fun, and when I made the center block I knew I liked that & I just started building around it.
Oh NO - I have run out of the background fabrics!
How bout it my quilty friends, does this fabric look familiar to you? From the 90's perhaps?
Is something like this lurking at the bottom of a stash pile somewhere? These are both off-white & white-on-white tonals, looking a bit dark here against the gray design wall.
I need one strip each of ten different prints, (or 20 2.5" squares of each print). Do you have one or two strips you are willing to send to Southern Nevada? In appreciation, all those who donate a strip (or squares!) to Summer Gathering will be entered in a drawing to win a 'Just My Type' charm pack (like I used for my recent Kitchenaid Cozy!)
Thank you for you help! Together, we just may be able to save the cottons ;-)
