I was off work last week on vacation and wasn’t in the mood to finish quilts. So, I indulged myself by making 2-patches with 2.5″ blocks and sewing them to 4.5″ x 2.5″ rectangles. It was lovely easy zen sewing! Rather than use a white or black background I decided to use a very soft yellow solid that’s been in my stash for a while as the background.
This is what resulted:Sadly the colours don’t show up quite right on the picture. The beige crosses are a soft yellow and show up better on this picture:
There are some “perfect random” fails in this quilt with two patches of the same colour touching itself but that’s real random right? It was fun and quick to piece. I can see making another one of these in a different colourway. Especially seeing that my box of 2.5″ squares is muffin topped.
