Starting a new quilt I mean 🙂
Yesterday we visited Boonah and a store called Maynards. Not much has changed in this store since it opened in 1944. I browsed through clothing, shoes, men’s clothing, hats, purses and handbags and other such items and then I found the material!!! There were bins of off-cuts and panels. At this point, the GG and the Tween wandered off and left me because they knew they were fighting a losing battle to remove me from the store without purchasing something. I found this off cut and thought it would look great in a scrappy quilt. So I looked for a binding material that would suit it, a couple of fat quarters and some cotton. The rest of the quilt would come from my stash.
Today, I decided to start cutting everything out. I discovered that the large piece of fabric that I had chosen for my background wasn’t quite enough so I’ve had to put in a couple of fat quarters to make up enough squares.
