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. Practice blocks. Unfinished blocks. 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.
