I had every intention to modify the quilt on the front cover here…(It’s a magazine from Winter 2011) and make a baby quilt for my nephew and his wife.
But then a box of fabric came in the mail from my friend Ila (THANKS so much Ila!) and I dumped it along with other scraps that had been given to me on the floor and started to create. Before long, I had this…
I just love scrap quilting out of little snippets. Making something out of nothing is my favorite. It’s not the favorite of my sewing room though. Just last week it was clean…way clean…let’s just say it a disaster again. As much as I hate cleaning up the mess playing with the scraps was SO-SO worth it!
If I had to do it over again, I would have picked a brighter fabric for the narrow colored inner border…but it’s okay as is. It finished at about 40″ square.
If you want a mini tutorial on how to make it, let me know and I’ll put something together. It really just took a couple hours. I love cute and easy.
Today I am hooking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
