Dump Quilt One
I had just the bag to take on Beth's dump-and-sew challenge. A new surprise of fabrics awaits!
After dumping - sorting the few blues and greens out for other projects in progress - adding a few more from the big bin of scraps on hand - I have this wonderful pile of pinks to play with.
Then it was stitching heaven! Pedal to the metal, no care seaming, just grab and go - my kind of sewing for sure. If you haven't tried it, you are missing out.
And blocks started to grow and grow........
and grow, and grow..............
When I put blocks into rows, the only real focus I had was to be sure these cuties were all sitting upright. We don't want any little girls on their pretty little heads!
And the quilt top is finished. I did square up my scrappy blocks into 8.5" manageable blocks and set them 7 by 8 for a 56" x 64" quilt. This pretty flimsie will be donated to Sarah's lovely group over at confessionsofafabricaddict
Have you made a dump quilt? These go very quickly, so grap a bag or pile of scraps - start sewing for National Sewing Month and donate that quilt. The Dump & Sew Linky Party will be Sept 10-15.
You have time - in fact, I have a second dump quilt in progress.
