I uncovered a small box with 6 inch squares. I believe, I bought it at a quilt show garage sale. I often wonder what the original quilter was planning and thinking while cutting her fabric into squares.
By donating her scraps, she has brought pleasure to my little world.
I didn't want to cut them down to 5 inch squares, but, I did look for inspiration in the charm pack patterns. I would just make the squares bigger, and, then, the quilt would be bigger.
I thought the squares looked coordinated enough, to just use them scrappy. The squares are big almost 18 inches. I am using this project at the treadle in the evenings while hubby and I are watching tv. These projects are not "real" projects, and, I am in no hurry. My favorite fabric is the black with fruit, so, I am making sure to have one of them in every square. They are too big to press on my little treadle space, so I will press them when I am done.
