Only two more hst's needed to complete this layout!
These are all from scraps donated a year or so ago, from which we've made several quilts so far, and the pile seems never-ending. We received them as 6-1/2 inch (more or less) squares all pinned together but mostly not sewn, into nine large quilts!! After unpinning and working with the fairly wonky squares for a few of our first donation quilts, we decided to trim the remainder into uniform squares, either 6-1/2 or 5-1/2 inch, depending on their original size. I'm thinking this layout with the addition of two more blocks will make approximately a 45x45 inch quilt, just about perfect for the nursing home request. There are several more that can be made from the remainder of the squares, perhaps next year.
Snow in the forecast for tonight, as well as this weekend. So, between painting the kitchen ceiling and walls and working on yet another quilt destined to be a Christmas gift, I won't mind a bit being inside out of the cold! And hopefully, I'll have both the top and back flimsies completed to show you in the next couple days. Yes, this quilt will have a pieced back too. Crazy I know, at this time of year, but you work with what you have for the situation at hand!
