Another Something New

After finishing my little Bunny Quilt top, I thought I would continue working on projects that I have held in my head using some of my older stash pieces.



I have had a one yard piece of an old Laurel Burch border fabric languishing in my stash.  It was time to get it cut up and made into a quilt.  I added a bunch of bright colored scraps cut to 2.5" square and set everything next to my machine.



The border fabric required some thinking on my part - I needed to get the best yield I could with some very selective fussy cutting.  And it needed to create the design I had in my head.  I ended up with two different 8" block designs. 

Now I just need to find some time to sew!
Thank goodness the blocks go really fast :)

It is hard to believe that the Fat Quarter Shop has already been in business 15 years!  There are lots of ways to celebrate with them.  They will have new items on sale every day this week or use code BDAY15 to get $15 off your order of $75 or more.  WooHoo!

That's a Laurel Birch I haven't seen. Can't wait to see how this comes together.

I love Laural Burch and especially these borders. Great job - and I definitely agree that quilting is WAY more fun than housework - as my house can attest! LOL

The border fabric is bright and fun and I think you came up with great blocks to feature it. I look forward to seeing how the quilt takes shape once you get them pieced!

I really like the direction this is going! I have a lot of odd, bright border pieces and really want to see how you put this together. I can always count on you for inspiring new ideas :)

What fun, bright colors! Question: Just how many pattern ideas are you holding in your head? It must be jammed pack in there!!! Bring 'em on!
