Karen over at www.selvageblog.blogspot.com is opening a Online Quilt Museum. She has a call out for one patch quilts. I have a one patch quilt I started a few - ok, more like 11 to 12 years back. I dug it out to see how much I did get done. It is a millennium quilt with 2000 different fabrics and contains authentic fabric from every decade. I use to work part time for an autctioneer so I would pick up vintage fabric all the time for a song. Here are two sections - one has 12 rows and the other has 8. I have no idea why I stopped working on this.
No this is not a pile of scraps. Here are 17 more rows sewn together that need added on to the quilt. I did trim the height of the rows about an inch so the finish height is 3".
I think I am going to go back and add 5 pieces to each row so that each row has 50 pieces. I have no idea why I pick a row of 45. When you divide 45 into 2000 it comes out to 44.44 rows. Well, that won't work!
Ok, here's the math. I have 1665 different pieces in rows. I still need 335 pieces of fabric from the 20th century. I went thru my stash and my Mom's during the 20th century and have used all of them once in this quilt. I still have a few pieces of fabric I need to cut, but I don't have 335 pieces. I needs some help here. If you have any scraps that are 4" x 4" and from the 20th century, that you want to donate to my cause let me know. Just e-mail me. I would appreciate the help to get this project done. The finish size of this quilt will be approximately 90" x 120" if I do not add a border.
