But out of this bag came lots of strips, blocks squares etc. and I made this wall hanging as a remembrance of my winning. That house had to be put into something
I want to do a little explaining of what and how I did this. First the red and beige HST were in the scraps so just found a pleasing way to surround the house. Oh, I put the strip of green on the bottom. After all doesn't every house have to have some grass?
Then I used two different strips to put a small border around. The next border is made from a number of strips she had made of a mixture of fabrics into piano keys. I only had to add a couple strips to make it fit.
Next wider border was made of two different prints but similar to balance with the inner one.
That last border believe it or not was made from large 6 1/2 in flying geese. I cut them in half and made HST out of them for the one side and bottom. The other side with the lighter fabrics was made from large 6 1/2 in HST Cut into quarters and using the 3 1/2 in HST and using two of them to make the Quarter square triangles for the other two sides. Here I had to use a couple pieces of fabric to make them fit. And as you will notice I had to cut off a part of the upper right one. I thought back to our Mothers and how they used all the scraps even piecing pieces to get it made. A little glitch here and there didn't mean a thing.
I just had fun making this work for a bout two days. Oh the outside borders are different widths because that is what I had. This all came out of this bag of scraps and I have enough to make a couple more wall hangings or even throw.
Now to find a box that will fit somewhere on my porch to house what is left.
I'm thinking that maybe I'll have to giveaway some fabric strips from the 90's. More to come. Thank you again Carol for a couple days of fun..
And many more.
And many more.
