I know I should be doing a UFO but this is very old fabric. maybe that counts..

I bought this fabric the first time I visited the USA, I thought it was so pretty. On getting home, I thought well what on earth am I going to do with it, so it has lain unloved for years.

Having seen a friends lovely Magic four square quilt, I thought perhaps I could use some of the fabric for that. So its been a case of make it up as I go along.

Using the largest bit for the four patches, I made 20 patches / Blocks.

Each one is different, some better than others, but all fun.

Things all went a bit astray after that, as I surrounded said blocks with 1/4" crumb catchers, and then forgot to take photos as I went along.

Well I have had a lot of fun, using up this fabric. The little quilt has now another border all around it, and I am about to cut piano keys with the scraps I have left for the next border. 
At the moment it measures about 45", but I would like to use up all the fabric if possible.
So it's a case of watch this space. 

Keep safe and keep stitching........................Doti...
