Shrinking, but not how you think
I wanted to try some of my designs in alternate colorways but really don’t have the budget for that much fabric, or the space to store or display many more quilts. Last weekend it occurred to me that I could remake quilts in a smaller size. Not just make fewer blocks, but just shrink everything.
Here’s the finished top for a shrunken Sparkling Trail.
The original Sparkling Trail measures 59” x 75”. This one measures about 29.5” x 37”. These aren’t my usual colors, and hubby was a bit hesitant to endorse this one! The kids thought it looked good though. I was quite surprised that I had all these black scraps in my stash. I think most of them are leftovers from making my Geese Across the Table placemats and runner.
Next up, I think I’ll try it in 1930’s reproductions for a completely different feel. But first maybe something with my Jelly Bean Stars block and sashing. Or…well, you saw the fabric in my last post. I have options!
