Here is my latest project:
The best thing is with pressing to the white (I know, goes against the grain) the seams all nestle. I love nestling seams!
I found this pattern while surfing Pinterest and traced the pattern back to Ramona at Doodlebugs and Rosebuds quilts. It caught my eye immediately as something I’d love to make. While Ramona made hers with 2.5″ squares I made mine with 2″ squares. I already had 20 or so 16 patches made with that size of square that were destined for another project I decided not to pursue.
While I used some brights I tried to use those squares that I normally overlooked for not being bright enough. It was odd working out of my comfort zone in terms of the tones and shades used but it still produced a nice bright quilt.
I haven’t put borders on yet as I’m pondering exactly what I want to do and I’m looking at my now much emptier scrap box and pondering if there will be enough in there for a scrappy outer border or if I need to start cutting up some larger scraps to add variety.
