Lots of reviewing and planning at this time of year – over on our Doodles page you’ll find our selection of this years doodles. Over here it’s the last Scrappy Sunday of 2019 before we rev up our scrappiness for 2020.
Just the smallest scraps today from a mostly vintage piece that Barbara conjured up several years ago. It began with several vintage Hourglass blocks bought at International Quilt Festival, Houston. The blocks/units were machine pieced from black and white “mourning” prints. After just owning the blocks/units for a number of years Barbara finally decided she could be brave and actually use them to make something! Three new blocks were made, changing the units around in the third block. Scraps of both old and new reproduction fabrics were used for the setting, borders and binding. This piece is a great example of our theory that scraps work really well together when you restrict the colour palette or keep a colour theme.
