OMG, he's disappeared!!  :D
If my idea works out, my first picture might not be uncut fabric as I want to use up the last of my spare squares and use up some offcuts -<

I've just been reading the destructions Imi and  you want a picture of the uncut fabric... gulp   I've made my quilt using the oakshott scraps so it has a very triangular theme as that's how they came...unless you have a picture of them ?
 the scraps are about 2" along the base and a touch over 1 " high I drew a grid  on some soft iron on interfacing and arranged the black... they have to be the dominant colour because there are more of them

Ladies I am going to amend the rule of uncut fabric for this particular sewathon.

As the quilt is going to be so small and you may want to use up your scraps please make sure you take a pic of the scraps before cutting and sewing.

Amended Rules ...

The competition runs from 2nd September til 2nd October.

Please post no less than 3 times in this thread (with pics, we love pics)

By the 2nd October submit your entry to Iminei@thesewingplace.org.uk

Fabric before construction,
Quilt in Construction,
Any Detail you want to showcase. This could be a pic of the Piecing, Quilting, Binding or any Embellishment

I remember you mentioning them on the 'how small is too small thread' and you said this 'Glad you like them, there are some weeny triangles in there, in Oakshott Cottons (Drool) cut offs from Star cornerstones I have been making,'

does that help?

Onwards with the triangles ...these were stitched with tiny seams as the scraps were so small and I just pressed them to one side as they were too small to cut open and press

Yes Imi.... I decided when planning my latest ( just completed ) quilt top that I needed to don my big girl knickers and embrace the tiniest amounts of  :x It's difficult to use a wide spectrum of colours without it ( and there's only so much teal a girl can have )  Anyhooo....... this isn't for me.... it's for a bear who may not be so colour  biased  discerning  :ninja:
