About 5 years ago I took part in a scheme organised by my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven, called "Stash Pot Pie". The idea was to encourage you to use your stash - fat quarters, scraps, whatever you have. The pattern for each quilt gave yardage amounts for lights, mediums, and darks, allowing you to choose whatever colour palette you would like to use. This was great for people like me who often went on a fabric buying binge! Anyway, this one is called "Lattice Top" and I used a combination of red, white and blue fabrics (very patriotic hehe!!) and there are several different fabrics in each colourway to give it a very scrappy look. The quilt top is made up with 2 different blocks - a simple Friendship Star, and a variation of a 9-patch block sometimes known as Thrifty. As you can see, I didn't get very far with it! I'd made several star blocks and a couple of 9-patch blocks and some of the pieced border and that was all I'd had time to do on the day of the class. I'd packed it away with other started projects and there it had stayed. So, as my challenge with the "Tour de Fibre" is to finish 5 projects before I start anything new, I'm now going to tackle this one! This is going to take me a bit longer than my other ones, but as usual I'll update you regularly with pictures of my progress!
