Green...and Purple, too! My Recycled Quilt
I had already started pairing one denim square and one flannel square (no batting in between), and stitching big Xs through the middle of them with a denim needle. I remembered getting stuck with the layout and trying to figure out how many more I needed of each fabric.
Let me tell you, this thing is HEAVY when you get to putting the last chunks together. I'm so glad I didn't try to do rows. Instead, I did three by three 12" blocks, two by two 12" blocks, and two sections that were two by three 12" blocks. Then I put all four sections together. It was only the last three seams that felt like I was wrestling it through the machine.
Then I stitched all the way around the edges and threw it out on the green grass in the sunshine for a picnic. It is about 60" x 60" finished. I love it!
I hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring weekend!
