I think I have about 30 5” squares and would like to make a queen size quilt. It will take me a while… I’ll post pictures one day when I finish it!
You may have noticed that there are several very old, very traditional (country…yikes!) pieces of fabric here. Yes! I am using up fabric from very old stashes. I’m not kidding…some of those pieces are at least 20 years old. Isn’t that ridiculous?
I went through boxes, plastic bags and containers, paper sacks…you name it! I spent the better part of 2 days pressing and folding that fabric and couldn’t believe how much I actually had! Here are my old pinks…I know, they look peach. I’m not a great photographer, sorry.I have several ideas for quilts and sewing projects requiring new, cute fabric. But this string quilt will definitely be made of (dare I call it?) vintage fabric.
Here’s my little tote I made from a charm pack of Mary Engelbreit’s “Recipe for Friendship” by Moda. Notice the cute little bottom corners? Yeah, they were supposed to be boxed. I totally sewed the corners the wrong direction. Oh well, I like it anyway. I lined it with denim. This is based on this tutorial.
