I hope those who celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and good food! I am still trying to digest all the wonderful food I ate. But I bet I will still find some room today for leftovers!
Before the holiday, I was able to get this month's Scrap-A-Palooza quilt onto my quilt frame and finished up. But before I show you the finished quilt, I want to review the steps that got us to this point.
The inspiration for this quilt was some leftover fabrics I had from some previous baby quilts. In Part One of this quilt, I shared my desire to make an improv quilt using a simple method to ensure all the pieces went easily together.
In Part Two, I shared how how I was sewing the blocks together. The whales, submarines and birds in this fabric sure made the piecing fun!
Last week, I explained how to break down the quilt into components for sewing. In no time the quilt top was finished.
And here is the finished quilt! The weather actually cooperated for a few minutes so I could snap some outdoor pictures. Of course the ground was wet but it is Oregon and we are used to that!
For the quilting, I went with a simple little wave design.
And for the backing, I found a great Brandon Mabley print in a dark orange hiding in my stash.
The fabrics in this quilt top are by Dan Stiles for Birch Organic Fabrics. The line is Marine. The solids are all Konas in varying shades of orange and teal with a bit of white thrown in.
This quilt is 39" x 48".
The following block sizes were made for this layout:
4 - 12.5" Square
16 - 6.5" Square
33 - 3.5" Square
4 - 6.5 x 12.5 Rectangle
1 - 3.5 x 9.5" Rectangle
Can you believe that December is right around the corner....Yikes!
