Leftover scraps and orphan blocks are like little treats for me. I get a lot of satisfaction making something pretty from fabric that would normally find its way to the trash. In fact, my friends know to ask before presenting me with these treasures because I will usually drop everything and start playing right away.
Here is an in-process shot taken with my phone late at night as I played around with some pieces. I just start putting the pieces up on my design wall and let the quilt make itself.
Here is the finished quilt a few days later...all quilted and bound!
I am happy to say I found a place for almost all of those pieces. I even used those odd shaped triangle pieces for a border detail. All of the other fabric came out of my stash.
A pretty Kaffe Fasset rose print and some berry colored shot cotton worked beautifully for the backing.
It was fun to puzzle out putting all the pieces into a lovely quilt with just the items I had on hand!
If you feel like this quilt is a bit of a deja-vu, it is very similar to a quilt I finished back in May.
Same friend, same fabrics.
Hey...I just realized my friend is doling out my treats!
