I needed to play a little bit
When I first saw this quilt on Victoria's blog I knew I wanted to make it. The title is "Everything but the kitchen sink".
She only used blocks she had leftover from past projects and I thought that was such a great idea.
So I emailed her to let her know that I would love to make one.
This is a fun quilt to make and I needed a break from the Vintage Valentine and everything else I have been working on.
My only concern was that I only had 2 blocks to start this quilt with since I mostly applique and I did not think I had any blocks.
So , I head off to my sewing closet and the pile you see is what I found.
I barely made it to work on time since I was so excited looking for all these blocks.
Much to my surprise I found:
I did have a few leftover blocks.
I had blocks from swaps .
Blocks from friends.
Blocks from quilt guild buys.
Blocks that would never become anything.
My quilt is the one on the top.
I apologize for the pics of the 2 scrap baskets.
Thanks Victoria for the inspiration and the permission to blog about this wonderful fun quilt.
