Start with a customer who gives you a large bag of remnants - mostly man-stuff like fishing & camping fabrics.
Add another customer who gives you a box of started scrappy quilt blocks.
When they bring them back to you the next month, take 'em all home and try to find one backing fabric that will look ok with ALL of the wee tops. This is definitely a challenge! Here, you can see that I found a nice neutral in my stash.
Baste around the edges of each placemat.
"Back To Front Self Binding". Ahem.
UFO CHALLENGE UPDATE
Ta da... Here is the Blooming 9-Patch all done. Binding finished and everything. Even labelled. Now I'm waiting for Margaret to pull the number for months March & April. I am going on a retreat this weekend so maybe I could do a little work on the next one.
