All of the setting fabrics came from stash, some of it well-aged. The star point fabric was originally purchased at a quilter's estate sale, so I'm sure it was well-aged too. The sawtooth border was constructed from the bonus triangles from the sew and flip star points. I still have more of those to use in another project.
Editing this post:
We are having some beautiful weather here in Missouri. Last week, while picking up our mail, I decided to take the Sister Choice along. There's not much color in the leaves yet, but I found this fence rail to stage it for a photo.
It's all finished and ready for the quilt show next week.
With that quilt finished, I decided to have some fun with experimenting with a new technique. New to me anyway.
I've had this book for awhile, and have been interested in trying this technique. I thought it would be fun to experiment with Halloween fabrics.
Now, what do do with those cute little blocks? I found a panel in that scrap bin that someone had given me. I had always liked it because of the dancing witches. The little string blocks made a great side border and I soon had another flimsy to add to the TBQ (to be quilted) stack.
Often, my experimental blocks end up in the orphanage, so it was nice to have something to show for an afternoon's playtime.
The scraps got cut into these little pieced strips to use in something else. What is my takeaway from this little experiment? Not a good scrap buster, because it creates more scraps. A quick method to make big blocks from WOF strips, like a jelly roll, but not as efficient for shorter strips. Then there are those bias edges, which I dislike. Will I use it again? Probably not, but never say never.
Meanwhile, I'll keep on stitchin'.
