When I found this quilt top earlier this year I didn't need to think twice. I snatched it up. It is scrappy and amazing and the price was right.
When I got home and examined it further I noticed it did have some issues. I didn't care.
I carefully soaked it in cold water and Oxy Clean and a couple of Shout Color Catchers in the water. Then I laid it outside to dry.
This is one of the issues. For some reason at some point in time it had been cut. Don't you wonder why? Upon further examination I discovered there were puckers and no way, no how would this quilt lay flat, ever. There was some color run too but not super bad. Then I put it away, knowing that one day I would have a plan for it.
For some reason today became a day of deconstruction. I decided to cut the quilt top into squares. I do have a plan. I was able to get 34 - 6 1/2" squares out of this quilt. I have scraps and I saved them.
So many fun fabrics in this quilt. It's like an I Spy. I also spent today deconstructing 3 men's shirts, an apron, and an IKEA duvet cover my daughter gave me. All future projects.
