Well I think I might be a little crazy. See, a friend of mine gave me this unfinished quilt top. She tried to use on of those fabrics that come in stripes of say 10 different fabrics to make a lone star quilt by cutting strips to make it look like she had pieced them together. Well, it worked ok - see on the right that strip of white? That and the fact that the top is a little wonky. But, she was frustrated and about to throw this, and all the scraps, in the garbage. Picture this - there were a tone of pieced panels that were going to go to waste with this method too. So, I said, "Hey don't throw them out I'll take them!"
Famous last words!
I thought that I could process these panels (see the last couple top right?) with my die cutter - NOPE! it just didn't work so I had to pull out my rotary cutter. And I cut and trimmed and cut some more until I finally reached the end of the stack - why oh why did I say I'd take them?!
At the end of all this cutting I had some nice stacks of fabrics: 2" squares, 1.5" finished HST and some already pieced HST - all ready to be used in a project!
What am I going to do with the lone star top? I think it might make a really nice back for whatever I choose to do with the other pieces. I'm not sure what yet but I will do something with it!
What would you have done? Chuck it or salvage it?
