This week I'm working on completing this bricks & stones scrap quilt that I started years ago. I had previously sewn together many of the blocks, but as I look at it now I see some fabric repeats that are placed a little too close to one another. I'll be ripping out some seams as well as making more blocks. At the moment, it measures 49" x 60" so I think I'll add enough to make it around 60" x 72". The patches are 2-1/2" x 5" for the bricks and 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" for the stones. I have a friend that runs a local homeless shelter, The Father's Heart Street Ministry, so when this quilt is done, I'll probably donate it.
I'm linked up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. I encourage you to go check out the great projects happening this week.
A little fabric shopping................I know that I'm trying to reduce my stash and make a huge dent in my scraps, but there are some fabrics that I really, really need. I want to make several more baby quilts so I bought some flannels for the quilt backs. I want to make a "modern" style quilt so I bought some grays. I have a poor selection of greens so I bought some greens to round out my stash.
Like most quilters, the sight of fabric makes me drool. Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by..................Happy Quilting
