I was watching an old episode of Quilt TV and Ricky Timms foundation pieced a diagonal quilt to use up scraps, so I decided to try it and was pleased with the result. He said to use the same fabric for the center piece, so that there was organization to the quilt. It really does make a nice pattern then. I also feel good using up strips that were sitting around the studio. However, that really didn’t make a dent in the stack!
Once quilted, it will go to Charity. It is single bed size. Try it, it’s fun. The trick is to use different widths of fabrics, so there is no matching needed.
