Last spring, when I was recovering from my shattered wrist and accompanying surgeries, I started a simple project using foundation piecing and selvages. I couldn't be very precise because of limited ability, but I was very happy doing these. And then I put these 30 blocks away. I unearthed them and have been deciding what to do with them. Because they are already Foundation pieced, I wondered if I could just add a backing and not do batting. And while that's possible, it just doesn't feel right.
I've been doing a lot of quilting lately and have been using a roll of wool batting. Suddenly I'm aware of how much leftover batting bits I have. And how much leftover muslin bits are laying around. And that I only have one hand-quilting project lined up once I finish my current one. So...
|I pieced together muslin scraps to make 12" squares|
|"Frankenbatted" my leftover wool batting bits with a simple zig zag|
|and basted the three layers together with a zig zag stitch.|
