Last fall I was given three large apples boxes full of heavy cottons. I immediately started cutting: 6½" squares, 4½" squares and 2½ x 6½" rectangles. This gave me the most out of the pieces of fabric without much waste. I am trying to make each quilt at least 60 x 80
There are 6 quilts in the works (so far) from those boxes, well 5 now that the one I designated #6 has been tied and will be send to the MCC thrift shop for sale.
My quilt group Little Bits of Comfort ( www.lbcq.blogspot.com ) tied this quilt at a bee last weekend.
