Back in November I started on another quilt completely using reclaimed/scrap materials ..... some cream cotton curtain lining and curtain fabric samples acquired from my local scrapstore and from a gorgeous fellow blogger Bloomin' Myrtle. Even the threads used are from my stash of vintage threads ..... how eco-friendly is that????
I found a lovely book in a charity shop and scoured it for ideas ..... I never stick completely to a pattern or instructions (it's the non-confirmist in me!) and tend to choose a basic idea and let it evolve from there.
I chose Granny's Flower Garden
It's a lovely easy one consisting of small hexagons sewn in in a flower shape and appliqued onto a backing square. I have used some more of the curtain fabric samples to make larger hexagons for the border and binding.
So this ....
now looks like this ......
My first completed project in 2011!
