What materials did you use? Cotton patchwork quilt blocks

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.

So how would you quilt this? Would you use an all-over (like a stipple) or would you try to highlight portions of each block with an all-over in the purple diamonds and borders?

Haven't figured that out as yet but NO STIPPLING. I think something geometric, in big stitch, maybe lemon yellow or white thread.

Pepper, LOVE the concept and the end result! Looking forward to learning more about the technique. Best, Roz from Philly

Are there directions for the big hexie scrap quilt?

Used very large templates for the Hexies and followed the diagram. The scraps were cut from other older patchworks so no directions.
