Hi there WOYWWers! I was totally MIA yesterday as I was hunkered down on my floor struggling with another small quilt. I had 4 fat quarters, and some off cuts from an old project that went, a bit, and got it in to my head that I could make something of it. I started by sewing the four quarters together.
The bright yellow is a metre of fabric that I thought would work for the back. I cut a 12.5 square right out of the middle.
Then sliced off the intersections and squared off the remaining bits.
That gave me some 6.5 inch squares, each with two fabrics. And a pile of plain squares too.
This is where I am. It’ll get a border of the dark green and then I’ll see where I am.
It will certainly work out to be more lap-size (I’m thinking about 44 x 30ish maybe?) than even a cot sized quilt, but it’s not bad for such a minimal amount of fabric (and so far what’s leftover is laughable – almost NOTHING) and starting with no pattern or cutting guide at all.
Now I have to decide if I wimp out and tie it or if I have a bash at stippling it. I think I need a lesson from a real person, as YouTube is good but it’s not really enough! Maybe I’ll do a practice square and see how I get on. But not till I desk hop 🙂 Happy WOYWW!
