I’ve used up more of the shirting fabric to make more quilt tops. I improv pieced this one with scraps and scraps and more scraps. I kept going until the top was twin-sized because I know our charity committee looks for those. I was really happy with how it came out. With the shirting fabric it came out pretty masculine, another thing they look for. I wasn’t sure about using the black fabric – I thought it might come out too dark – but there wasn’t that much and with the improv piecing it got broken up.
Some of the shirting fabric came sewn together (right sides together? I can’t tell because it’s shirting fabric) – I had a set of eight squares sewn together all the way around. I’m not sure what the purpose was. I used my rotary cutter to cut off the seams and then I squared them up to approx. 13.25″ each. I sewed the eight together in a 2 by 4 layout and then I added borders to get the size I wanted.
I’m hoping to put together a couple more quilt tops before our charity day. We’ll see!
