Music Man wallhanging - progress pics....part 3


And I've done enough for one evening.
Keeping in mind, these patches are 3" square, these are the smallest pieces I would consider stitching. I am in awe now of those who make mini-quilts.
I've got them now to this stage - and pressed the seams to the left and to the right, rather than open flat. The first square doesn't quite match on the points, but I'm not letting get to me.....
I'll continue on this tomorrow, in the daylight...


And isn't this the bestest fabric??? I have no idea just what I'll use it for, but I knew if I had left it at the shop, it wouldn't be there again when I went back to get it....


Question: When you trim your fabric and you are left with little scrappy bits....how small are they when you decide that they are of no possible use? I've found myself keeping pieces as small as 1" x 2" for 'just in case'.

arrrrgh it's an illness I tell you!!!

Love your quilt!

The beach fabric is great. I'd use that to back something about swim suits. It's really cute!
