Josie's quilt

Following yesterday's post about quilts made with scraps of fabric, I am off to quite a good start with making a similar one for Josie. With no shortage of scraps and inspiration. I've really enjoyed putting together small pieces of fabric today on the first of the 12" squares that will make up the quilt.

Just getting started and thinking about colours, pattern and shape. It really is so exciting being able to use all of those scraps of beautiful fabric that I couldn't bring myself to throw away. If I had carried on saving scraps, there would have been no room for new fabric.

The first finished square. At the moment I intend to take 28 of the large squares altogether but I might change my mind.
