Have you heard of 3-Yard Quilts?
Donna Robertson (Fabric Cafe) has published a series of booklets, each for making eight different quick and easy throws with just three one-yard pieces of fabric. (Instructions include larger sizes which would require more fabric.)
My quilting neighbor Sally can whip out one of these in a day, so I thought I'd give it a try. The concept appealed to me because I have a lot of "why-did-I-buy-that?" and "what-can-I-possibly-do-with-that?" fabrics. So over the weekend I pulled eight "ugly" fabrics and paired each with two yards of complimentary calmers.
Here are seven kitted up and ready for cutting. Number 8 is cut and ready for me to take to Devo and Sew today.
My plan is to take one to each sew day and be able to leave it for our TBQ stack of encouragement quilts. You'll have to check back tomorrow to see how that goes.
