The Canadian Quilters Association began this sew-a-long in January 2019, and I learned of this through one of my Canadian quilter friends. Each Tuesday of the year directions for a 6.5" block were released and shown in grey scale, one of my favorite palettes. Looking at my immense scrap collection, I thought it would be fun to work on this project, using only scraps.
By using 3" sashing, this quilt is a useable size 65" x 75". It just needs quilting! I auditioned a lighter background for these blocks but am happier with the darker background.
I enjoyed this little project and it's fun to have an almost-finished project. The overall look is one I don't treasure despite all my favorite little bits of grey and backs. This quilt will start looking for its owner soon.
One note: a friend pointed out to me that one of the blocks had a definite Swastika look. That block was immediately removed and replaced with one of my own invention.
Another note: Having two hands is terrific. The stitches come out today from the pin removal two weeks ago. Then real rehab begin to restore wrist flexion. My hand is sore - parts of it are waking up and all soft tissue needs intense stretching as the muscles develop. But I'm so happy to have both hands again!
