Recently, while putting away some fabric, I came across some really old chunks of fabric that really needed to be made into something. Not having a lot of time, I wanted to make something quick and I thought the primary colors would be great for a kid's quilt.
So I scanned through my previous Scrap-A-Palooza quilts for inspiration and thought I would combine the blocks from my ZigZag quilt and assemble it using the Horizontal Bar or the Brick Quilt.
So I grabbed these precut black and white 2 1/2" squares from my storage container...
...and made this cute little quilt!
I cut the rectangles at 4.5" x 8.5" and sewed them to the pieced black and white fabrics. It was super fast to sew up. Not too bad from a bunch of unloved fabrics.
The blue bandanna fabric I had in my stash worked perfectly for the backing. And because my piecing wasn't perfect on this one, I went with a serpentine stitch for the quilting, which helps to hide those imperfections.
In no time at all, this quilt is ready for a new home!
This quilt will be my second one being linked up with Quilts in the Queue for the 100 Quilts for Kids event. A local organization called Bags of Love is getting a big stack of quilts from me this year!
There is still time for you to make a quilt for the event. Need ideas? There are lots in the Scrap-A-Palooza Quilt Gallery. Just grab your scraps and pick a project. They are all fast and easy!
