I started this project with a box full of scraps. I didn't have any pattern in mind, but I knew I wanted to do curved piecing. I worked with one piece of scrap at a time. If it was too small, I would sew several pieces together to make a new fabric and worked with that. Each block was uniquely constructed. When finished, I put it on the design wall and went on to the next block.
There are some prints in there too. Some modern quilter purists might not agree, but I didn't want to limit myself, on this quilt at least, to just solid. Now that I make mostly modern quilts, I want to be able to bring these fabrics that I love into the modern projects too.
This is what I started with.
Then it grew into this.
Then it came to this.
I absolutely loved making this quilt. I had so much fun just like playing with a giant jigsaw puzzle pieces. Next will be quilting it and I think I have an idea how I want to do it. This is my May OMG project. I'm glad I finished it.
I continued to make more face masks for family and elderly friends. I'll be making them until this pandemic is over.
Stay calm and sew on....
