Cotton patchwork quilt blocks
What was your inspiration?
I not only have scraps of fabrics but over the years have accumulated scrap patchwork. I'd do one block because I thought I'd like the pattern and then decide not to continue to a larger project. But I NEVER throw any work away. Lately have been working with oversize hexagon shapes and enjoy the creativity.
What are you most proud of?
I cut up 28 old patchwork blocks and they died a noble death. Also loved working with the shot cotton for the diamonds and borders.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Time is not the object. Root around and see what you've been saving and can upcycle into this, or another, quilt.
