Red and White Bits and Pieces
It's a flimsy!
42 x 63
Last year while I was sorting through the crumb boxes I came across lots of red and white HSTs in a variety of sizes. Most were wonky so that's why they were in the crumb boxes. Some were bonus HSTs. Some were waste triangles still matched up with a white waste triangle.
I made most of the other colors of HSTs into blocks last year that are now orphans waiting for a quilt. But there were so many red and white bits and pieces that I put them aside to make into a quilt this year when the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month is red. This is the month.
I sorted by size and then sewed them together into columns keeping in mind that I wanted a quilt at least 40 inches wide.
Then I added some red tone on tone scrap chunks to the bottom of each column. I added red first because I had fewer red scraps than white.
I then measured each column with the addition of the red and added a white scrap to the top of the column keeping in mind that I wanted the quilt to be at least 60 inches long.
And that's the story of how this flimsy came to be.
