Elm Street Quilts April Link-up: Three Yards

I purchased 3 yards of coordinating fabric and then decided I didn't like it.  What do I do?  Use it up and get it out of the house!  But, I am running short of fabric for the design I thought might work.  Nevertheless, I am determined to finish this top for my Elm Street Quilts April OMG.  It will then become a charity quilt for the county chaplains who are called out to assist with death notifications and other emergencies when a chaplain is requested.

This is the design that I started with:
Unfortunately, the block dimensions I came up with are too big for 3 one yard cuts.  I will have enough for the blocks but not for the borders as pictured.  I will have to come up with another plan.  That will be a mystery until the next Elm Street Quilts Link-up.

One row of completed blocks:

At least you are sewing. I haven't sewn most of the month, since I had a rush trip to Texas for a funeral, and I've been sick since before that. I like the whirligig pattern.

Good luck on meeting your goal and getting the fabric out of the house!
