There were many things I should have been doing last weekend. The sun was shining and the weeds were waving in a gentle breeze. I looked at them, then looked at my fabric stash and you can guess which won out!
I often just skim the surface of my stash but I needed some yellow and blue and pink and red....
It's an old supper cloth and I've added the plates and hexagons. This is a lovely idea curtesy of Chris Jurd. It was loads of fun and very quick as I made sure to purchase a small cloth. By happy chance the design suited dresden plate pieces which filled in an area very quickly.
Digging around in my stash, I realised there were many favourite fabrics that needed to see the light of day.
The choice of block was easy, it's the one I used in the centre of the second twins quilt. I'm determined to use up whole scraps and not return any left over pieces to the stash, no matter how tempted I may be.
Guilt at my flourishing weeds and the chance to be outside in perfect spring weather did win out for a short time.
