I packed up all my stuff yesterday for retreat; and, also, got a pattern in the mail from a friend that was for a charity quilt for our guild. Well, I thought I would just go look through my stash to see if there was something I could use for it.
That hunt took me to a crayon challenge from a couple (or maybe more) years ago.
I pulled these two crayons out of the box and we were supposed to make a quilt in those colors for the following year to show at our retreat (the same one that I am attending this coming week). Well, I bought the fabric, but never made the quilt. Soooo....with the bag of fabrics for that quilt, I decided to make the charity quilt instead. Cut out all my strips.
All the pieces were lying on the floor, so I thought maybe I can quickly sew them together to get them out of the way.
Next thing you know, I have a quilt top for charity.
I should have just taken it to retreat to sew it, but it was all laid out and in my way........oh well.
Needless to say, I had to unpack a couple things to get this top finished. Now to go put them back before I forget to take them along with me.
I think I am going to stay out of the sewing room until I pack the car.
