Since I took a LOT of pictures, I'll break down this project into several posts.
Last fall a Cousin from Arkansas sent me scraps of fabric to make a quilt for our "Orphan's Quilting Project." In that box were several squares already cut. I studied them for a while trying to decide how to use them.
I could realize no theme of color and the variety of numbers didn't create a design. So, I dumped them all in a basket, and mixed them up.
I drew them out blindly 2 by 2 and stitched them in a continuous stitch (didn't cut them apart as I stitched them.) The only time I would throw one back in was if it was a duplicate or a repeat of one of the very previous piece.
Next, I spread out the pairs, still not cut apart and stitched pairs together as they came in the row. As you can see, the pieces were put together as randomly as possible.
When you finish connecting the row of pairs, then you have a twisted mess!
Because now you have 2 sets of threads that haven't been snipped.
Since things are so twisted now and I can't lay anything flat to sew a seam, I decided to start snipping.
Do you think you know what the next step will be?
