Many moons ago, when I first fell in love with quilts and decided to start collecting fabric to make them, I began with old shirts and worn out clothes, firstly from hubby's wardrobe! then charity shops, car boots etc. This built up into quite a big stash which has come in handy over the years, but a few months ago I decided that I had far more than I would ever use and decided to start thinning out the piles and cutting them up to make bundles (like jelly rolls) to maybe sell. I've just about finished but need to sort out an etsy shop, which knowing my lack of technical know-how may take a while!
In the mean-time I've used the smallest bits to make 5" squares and then made lots of 1/2 square triangles.
I played around with the design and have settled on a pinwheel pattern that I'm really happy with. I love the fact that all the fabrics are recycled and well worn, giving it that homely "Little House on the Prairie" look. As it's not too big I'm going to try and finish this one, using one of the girls' bedroom floors to spread out the backing and wadding. Off to start joining the squares.
A couple of pic's of the garden. Was hoping the sun would come out but decided to take them anyway before all the leaves fell off!
