First Quilt Finish of 2022

 I shared some finished placemats earlier this month, but this is the first quilt finish of 2022.



I had a number of navy-blue leftover binding strips and large blue chunks in my scrap bins.  So I wanted to make a project that used them up.  I am also wanting to clean out the tiny crumbs from my scrap bins - so this quilt really helped meet those two goals.




There are a number of different layouts that can be made using this block.  But I went with this one because I didn't need to match up a bunch of points.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.




The block is quite simple...it is just a 2.5 x 8.5" rectangle with four 1.5" flip corners sewn on.




I was able to use up some older stash on the back.  I didn't have quite enough of the striped fabric, so I pieced in another blue.  It really shows off the swirly quilting.

This one will most likely go into the donation pile.  It isn't very big - it measures 48"x 56".
I am pleased to report it used up almost all the navy scraps I had. Yay!

This wek I hope to focus on the UFO project I want to finish by the end of the month.  Almost all the blocks are done - I just need to sew them up and quilt...and I have about 10 days to get it all done!

Have a great weekend!

You do the most with the least! Love it.

That's just beautiful! I love how the corners going different directions in each row give the quilt such movement. For such small pieces, I think that's a good size quilt, too!

Congratulations on your first wonderful finish! And on keeping your lawn so beautifully green in mid-January! (Where do you live?) We've been shoveling snow for the last 2 weeks. Enjoy that grass. ;^)

The red binding finished it off perfectly, and hooray for using up nearly all of your navy scraps; success!

It turned out great!

How pretty! I love the movement of color with the sewn on triangles, the way they flippity-do throughout the quilt.

Those block edges remind me of rickrack and make this a beautiful scrappy quilt. So effective the way you've arranged the blocks, and makes me want to dig through the scrap bins and start one too.
