This is just a small sample of the 2 1/2 in blue strips I have filling 4 two and one half gallon plastic bags. They will be used in making background squares for the Guild's newest raffle quilt.
I made seven blocks so far and ran out of the fabric I was given to include in each block.
This was extra challenging. I was given a panel with 8 scenes on it and needed to make a 50 x 60 in quilt or close to it. I was also given a small amount of the gold and reddish fabric and the black. I ran out of the gold so went into my stash when I got home and added the greens. I also ran out of the black but knew it was the same block of which I had a bolt. I also had to come up with a center block. Of course the panel squares were not square so had to take that into consideration when figuring out the center block.
I did these three blocks yesterday. The first one I did using the fast "Flying Geese" method rather than making half square triangles so it was super fast! As you make four at a time with this method, I had 2 left over which I used today in a block!!
