"Every block of stone has a statue inside it
and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it"
Awhile ago I gazed at my bag of scraps
and thought inside that bag there is
a quilt. I just have to find it.
After some inspiration from Lori at
Humble Quilts and her quilt alongs
this is what emerged.
22" x 26"
All those little scraps were just waiting to be sewn together to
create this design.
I finally got it machine quilted with a diagonal star pattern
and then bound.
It's bright and happy.
The second quilt I finished is also
a SAL (sew along) from Humble quilts.
It's been sewn together, but waiting for
30" x 42"
It started out as one block.
And finally six.
I knew it wasn't finished until then.
It's machine quilted in the ditch
and I did feathers in the borders,
but it was good to practice them anyway.
Notice the thin strip of fabric on the backing?
That's what happens when you need a yard
of fabric for the backing and
sometime in the past you've cut off a short 2 inch strip.
But it was the perfect fabric for the backing.
There's no difference in looking
in a bag of scraps
or a pile of fat quarters or
at yardage for a potential quilt.
It's in there, you just have to discover it.

carved until I set him free."
