I've written 4 previous posts about the quilts that I made with overdyed fabric. Bonnie Keller gave me two huge boxes of old fabric that she wasn't going to use, and I overdyed a lot of it. I saw a picture of this quilt on Pinterest and used it for the inspiration for this quilt.
It's 65" x 70", which is the size that our charity group likes to work with. Mostly made with half square triangles, it also includes some longer strips of the background fabric. Since I wanted to alternate yellow with the gray background, I made 150 half square triangles, pairing the overdyed fabric with the background as follows:
From the yellow: 50 (from 25 @ 6" squares of both colors)
From the light gray: 46 (from 23 @ 6" squares of both colors)
From the medium gray: 28 (from 14 @ 6" squares of both colors)
From the darkest gray: 26 (from 13 @ 6" squares of both colors) and 2 strips at 5-1/2" x 35-1/2"; 2 strips at 5-1/2" x 25-1/2"; 2 strips at 5-1/2" x 15-1/2"; and 2 each 5-1/2 x 5-1/2" squares.
I hope you like it!
