A Quick Small Finish

I am a very visual person.  So as I was making my quilt for the cover of my Summertime Blossoms pattern, I cut additional prints to "test" during the assembly.  The prints that were "rejected", ended up on my cutting table.  As I was cleaning up this week, I decided to sew up the blocks and make a little quilt with the parts.



This little quilt measures 32" square.  




Rather than have the petals all the same on each bloom, I mixed them up a bit.  This solved my problem of only having two color and only a print/solid in each color.  I think the quilt would have looked unbalanced if I had kept them uniform.




I used the same green fabric for the binding as I used on the backing.  I think I only had a one yard piece but it was enough for both.




I don't have a home for this so I might just donate it.  
For just a bunch of leftovers, I think it turned out pretty cute!


(If you want to see the post on the lap sized quilt, you can find it here.)

It's adorable! Would be cheery on a table, or for a little one to snuggle with.

Sweet! It's a great little version and I'm impressed you made use of those test fabrics.

What a great quilt. I like that the background makes a version of the colored piecing in the very center.

Oh that is cute! Amazing how the white background changes up the feel of those blocks. I like the pink and green together!

It’s impressive seeing you make and finish so many quilts without letting them sit around. These posies are especially cheerful and will make some little one happy.

It is a cute little quilt. I like how you arranged the petals. It looks like you always meant to make it this way.

Yes, mixing up the petals made all the difference here. Good for you for putting these test blocks to good use (at my house, they would have been destined for the trash)!
