Cinnamon Jumble

Dreary weather motivated me to settle into my sewing room. I rummaged through the scrap bin and decided to make a few string blocks. A "few" blocks ended up being 30 blocks as it was hard to quit once I saw the string pile diminishing. I depleted my stash of 1.5, 2, and 2.5 inch squares and strips.

I even used half square triangles left over from the Bear Paw Quilt. The sashing is also a remnant from the Bear Paw Quilt.

I am proud to report that this entire quilt top, binding, and backing is made from my fabric stash. The only purchase I made was thread, and of course, the price of having it quilted.

Cinnamon Jumble was donated to the Quilter's Newsletter drive for victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. I pray that the recipient finds comfort in this quilt.
