So this is the one formerly known as the Compost Quilt–there’s a tutorial at that link. Started back on August 20, 2011, according to my flickr photo diary, I was partially inspired by Tonya’s Lego Quilt which was inspired by a vintage quilt. It’s just an orgy of scraps cut into 1.5″ wide strips and sewn together into rail fence or log cabin blocks.
I finished the 72 x 60″ top in September 2011 and there it sat while I was obsessed with sewing smaller things. Finally let my longarmer, Pamela J. Cole take care of bizness for me in 2015.
Omg, the creepy kitties! They just stare and stare and stare…
Goodness, those are big pieces. It’s amazing how perspective changes.
And it sat until this weekend in February 2017 when I needed a quilt for a friend starting chemo soon. Quickly finished the frankenbinding so a scrappy hug can be a comfort to her.
Six years isn’t too bad for a pile of fabric bits to become a quilt, right?
