Design Wall Monday

Remember back in January when I had a tiny distraction? It's a little blurry in my memory as to how the bag of tiny HST blocks got into my hands at a guild meeting, but somehow they came home with me. And they called to me until I made them into a quilt top that you can see here.


The original anonymous maker (let's call her "Rose") of the repurposed HSTs heard that I had adopted them and gave me extra fabric she had leftover from her project. It was exactly enough to add borders to bring the quilt top up to the size needed for the memory quilts my guild collects - 24" square. See how I put a bit of sashing around 2 cornerstones? That's because there was just barely enough fabric to finish those borders!
Can't wait to get going on the machine quilting!
Hop over to Small Quilts to see more design wall posts.

  3. So cute. What a remarkably creative way to use up those pesky little bits. Love the colors too!!! Isn't it amazing when the fabric is just enough? Like it was meant to be.
