After I finished putting together my nine patch blocks that I showed you last Friday, there was one extra piece. It was a colorful, fun piece that called to me. Over and over again.....
I mean, could you resist this piece?
Well, actually, it was accompanied by a second piece.
My project top was completed. Shouldn't I just throw these remnants away and be done?
The piece that I am fighting with grew too large for my nine patch, but...
when I measured it, it was just the right size for a Quilter's Tile.
OK, Little Scrap, you win!
You will become a Quilter's Tile.
A bit more piecing was needed to enlarge the solid piece of Kaufman Radiance fabric to the needed 8" size.
Another scrap would provide the width to make a tile 8" x 8".
After stitching the sections together I realized there was bubbling along one seam line. On more forgiving cotton patterned fabrics, this may not be a problem. On the Radiance that catches the light so beautifully, this area will always stand out as a mistake. There would be no camouflaging it with my quilting stitches.
So the stitching came out.
And was restitched.
Now, how will I quilt this?
