The criteria I've set is fairly basic. Each quilt will have the same size square and must be a string quilt. I think the quilt shown was "quilt as you go", but the series will be FMQ. Fabrics from my scrap boxes will be the only fabric allowed. Yes, boxes. I'm ashamed to say I have two huge plastic storage boxes, the very biggest, longest they make--cedar chest size, full of scraps. Probably 20 years worth of scraps. I'd forgotten about them, but they surfaced during my rearranging project. This project will be killing two birds with one stone hopefully. I'll get several "panel covers" and two empty storage boxes.
In my last post you saw my huge mess, caused by my hair-brained idea to rearrange my studio spaces. Well, if you saw photos now, you'd swear everything has multiplied. There is a huge mess here, and it may be awhile before it gets better. But, it will be clean! It's amazing how much dust comes out once things are moved. Wish me luck -- I'm going back in.
