Scrap Quilt Memories
It finishes at 36" x 46".
The blocks in the centre are 'lozenges' (rectangles with the corners 'snowballed') which used up some particular size of squares that I had. Then I had almost enough rectangles to create a border around them. Just five more needed to be cut - one from a scrap of fabric that I had beside my sewing machine, four for the corners from another left over piece.
I relived some of the happy memories of making the quilt for him and his wife and of the phone call from him on his wedding day, with their 'thank you' for the quilt.
I wouldn't think that a simple measurement could bring all that back so vividly! I'm almost sad that I've used all of them now - although happy that I've made a further dent in my scrap drawers!
Another quilt for Project Linus is complete!
