Blue and Green Scraps #2







This quilt is already sold, but just realized that I hadn't posted about it here.  It's another one of those from my flurry of cleaning out my blue and green scrap bin.  After this one, I have one small one that I'm hand quilting, another small lap quilt top completed, and strips to make one more lap quilt.  So one small and four medium sized quilts from one wire basket of scraps!  It's crazy how far this fabric goes.  And also makes me realize again how many quilts worth of fabric I have in my stash!

I used wool batting in this one, because I had bought a few packages of it on a good sale.  It makes for a puffier and slightly heavier quilt, and the loopy quilting stands out quite a bit.  I like to do these loops on a quilt with strips like this, because the seam lines make a perfect straight line for me to follow.

  8. 1) I am completely in love with every detail of this quilt!
    2) did you quilt it vertically or horizontally? and if horizontally, left to right or right to left?

  16. Oooh I love it! It looks to have a delightful puff. I was just thinking yesterday about making another strip quilt for a friend's child's bed. Always a good fall back. Classic. Simple. Good.
