Last one for a bit

And the final pair of table mats.

Both are orphan blocks from the Twilight quilt, one from the central panel and one from the border. Both just didn’t work because they were too bright for their context, but luckily they’re about to have a new career as table mats!  They’re backed with more of the purply-teal you saw on the last pair, and both are bound with scraps, which is why both sets of bindings are half-and-half in different fabrics.

Tomorrow I’m delivering the whole stack of recent work to Days for Girls, and letting them know I’m taking a bit of a break because I now have to concentrate on finishing Tyger and making a start on blocks for the latest Ovarian Cancer quilt, Can You Teal the Love. There’ll be some bags in the not too distant future, but other work has to take priority for now.

I’ve enjoyed making quite a big dent in some of my scraps, but it’s time for even bigger things!

A few more scraps

This is almost the last of my orphan blocks.

I thought a set of three table mats might be nice… It uses up blocks, bits and pieces of fabric and odd lengths of 2½ inch fabric strips, and you finish with something pretty and useful. More Days for Girls prizes.

Two more mats to go, and then I must finish assembling the top of the Tyger quilt. It’s been a bit stalled while I tried to put some prize material together, but it’s past time to get that bit done, sandwich and then quilt the thing.

I’m going to need the space on my design wall.
