During the past two months of staying safe at home, I’ve depleted quite a bit of my stash fabric on quilts and facemasks. Thank goodness my scraps bins are still plentiful, especially the black, white and grey scraps bin – which is still packed pretty tight even after making the 336 half square triangles for this quanket. A few years back, I made Flamingo Floyd based on a quilt I had seen in a magazine. I wanted to try something similar with this, but in my own design. My daughter said this has an Escher look to it – I’ll take that as a compliment! 🙂
The choice for the name To the Point should be apparent. I also like that this name is somewhat opposite in meaning to my last quilt, Monkeying Around. However, I still did a fair amount of monkeying around with designing this quilt 😉
This was donated to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services for a child in foster care in June 2020.
Sometimes I see quite a 3-D look. Nice use of scraps. Wish my scraps were so color coordinated.
Thanks! I have a basket on my cutting table that I throw all my scraps into as I work. After a few quilts-worth of scraps, it begins to overflow at which point I then separate by colors, and then move into the photo boxes I use for my scraps. Once a photo box begins to overflow, it’s time for a scrappy quilt!
