When Does 1 - .95 + 2 - .8 = ONE?

This may make sense to you if you follow my blog!

The quilt I made with my fabric I designed used about 95% of the fabric I had.

The quilt I made using my hand dyes used about 80% of that group of fabrics.

So when I put the leftovers from these two quilts together I got ONE new quilt.

The red strips in this quilt are a scant 1/8 inch wide. I put the pencil in the photo to give you a reference point with the lead from the pencil.

There is a very small amount of the fabrics from these quilts left so don’t bet on seeing them again soon!

This is another one that will not be quilted until I have time to study it and decide what I will do.

Your 'style' knocks me out! This quilt top, to me, is even more stunning!! What a fabulous pattern. And your inventiveness using the leftovers is inspirational. Thanks for sharing!

What a great concept quilt. I love the colors and the way you spliced and diced the pieces together. Great job!!!

Beautiful. I did a B&W quilt with orange accents and still smile when I pull it out to use is on my bed.

Kay, I can't stop coming back to this blog post because that quilt calls to me - it's simply perfect.

Could you perhaps share with us how you keep the seams so straight with such narrow strips? Thanks :)
