Scrap quilting makes me happy! What is better on a dull and cold winter’s day than staying inside and playing with a box of scrappy squares?
This quilt top was started during those short days of wintery gloom when was spring is just a distant dream. While I usually go for brights, this quilt called for floral pastel fabrics that said “spring”.
I love all the soft warm colours in it! Is it spring yet?
It’s now in the pile of flimsies to be quilted. I’m thinking of backing it with polar fleece to make it extra cozy!
Another quilt top I have been working on is this one inspired by a quilt I saw on the Wedding Dress Blue blog.
Intitially, I was planning to do this all scrappy. After making a few scrappy white 4-patch background blocks I realised that the eye needed some place to rest. So I changed my plans and used a constant background. The background is actully darker and more tan than it appears in the photo.
I’m musing about making this again at some point using half square triangles or flying geese on the outer four patches to give it a bit more interest and a picket fence type of look.
While I’m tempted to start another scrappy quilt immediately because scrap quilting makes me happy, I do have three quilts layered and ready to be quilted. I should do at least one of those before starting a new project. Let’s see how I do with that goal.
