In August, I joined Caring Hearts Community Quilting Group and, at my very first meeting, was given an environmental shopping bag full of scraps. At first I had no idea what to do with them but eventually I sorted through the bag and found some one-colour scraps to play with.
In November and December I made my first blocks, trying to catch up with the months I had missed. You can see my efforts here (brown) and here (red, yellow, purple, black and white).
January 2012 was red month but I had already used my red scraps in November so I didn’t participate.
February was green and I halfway through the month I still hadn’t touched my bag of green scraps. The month rolled on and the bag remained untouched.
Then, last Wednesday I finished the quilt top I was working on – time for a new project.
Out came the bag of green scraps and by Thursday afternoon I had these:
four patch (6 1/2 inch square)
nine patch (6 1/2 inch square)
strings (6 1/2 inch square)
improv blocks (6 1/2 inch square)
and Wonky Windows (5 inch square)
A total of 22 blocks. Not too bad for a few hours of sewing!
I wonder what the colour for next month will be?
