I started this series quite by accident, but it has worked out very well and I have a number of good, small quilt tops made from something for which I didn’t have an immediate use. I had a box of quilt ‘dreg’ ends. Dreg is an ugly word as it conjures an image of grounds in an empty coffee cup or discarded tea leaves. These were simply pieces and parts that don’t have an immediate need or use. Most were the edges cut off of a quilt after squaring it up. Some were quite large. For some reason, in 2017, I decided to go through the box in which they were stored. I was on a sort of clearing jag and as I tossed out strips to get them out of the way, a kind of design emerged. I have to add a background or constant fabric to each quilt as there isn’t enough fabric in the leftovers to make much of anything without it.
Since then, I have gone through that hidden, out of sight box. I have found all of my quilt edges and made tops that will keep someone warm and happy.
In August 2020, I took some edges out of the giant pile that I had accumulated and quickly put together Ends n.9. I kind of like the strips going horizontal. This will be quilted by Alison.
Tim has quilted a number of these and others have bound or otherwise finished them. I am really pleased with this series.
