84 x 84
It's a finish!
I tried to take some pictures yesterday but it was partly cloudy, it was cold and it was windy so this is as good as it gets.
Except for chunks, strings, selvages and crumbs my scraps are sorted by size. This quilt was made from 1.5 inch scraps. From my blog history it appears I started combining a 1.5 x 2.5 inch colored scrap with a low volume scrap of the same color and just made 2.5 inch unfinished squares for the Parts Department around May 2017 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. I figured I could use them for a border, to make Four Patches or Whirlagigs someday when I had enough of them.
Around July 2017 I played around with the little squares and somehow ended up sewing them together by color into blocks of three columns and seven rows probably because I had at least 21 little squares of several different colors. I called them 21 Patches even though there were 42 pieces.
By November 2017 I was calling them Whatchamacallits because I was not sure what to call them but those blocks needed a name.
Sally of Objects of Design started making some blocks and by September 2018 she had a whole quilt top of them. She called hers Bitcoins and I thought that name was clever and more descriptive so my 21 Patch turned Whatchamacallits turned into Bitcoins.
In June of this year Bitcoins became a flimsy (or top if you prefer) that consists of 3528 little pieces of fabric if I calculated correctly. It was a charm quilt until it wasn't. I intended to use all different colored scraps and each time the Rainbow Scrap Challenge came around I only cut one piece off of each scrap that was in there; however, since it took me several years worth of scraps to get all the blocks I need a scrap may have been in the 1.5 inch scrap bin from year to year so there are repeats.
And then I finally put it in the hoop and started big stitching with ecru perle #12 that I had on hand. I didn't mark anything. I just big stitched about 1/4 inch either side of the lengthwise seams.
The quilt fits perfectly on my bed and since it is square it can be oriented any way on the bed.
I used wide muslin for the backing and muslin scraps for the binding.
When I hand quilt I usually use Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.
