Scrap Quilt #5







So my last quilt (the pinwheel one) used up all the 'dirty' or 'muddy' colors.  This one is all the 'clean colors.  So the squares all started at 5", and I had to go to my fabric stash to supplement a few of the white background squares.  I basically went from dark to light values on this one.

The backing is a vintage sheet which I've been saving for a long time.  It's so cheery and it just seemed perfect for this quilt.  Because it's a heavier weight cotton, it gives this quilt more a picnic blanket feel.

Dimensions:62"x65"  (just realized when I measured this that I sewed on one more row the long way, can't remember if this was intentional!  Oh well, it's rectangular now:)

  5. This is so pretty. I like that the center is off-set a bit. I think it gives the quilt so much more movement. And the sheet is a perfect backing.

  6. WOW! This is gorgeous! Thanks for showing us your quilts. Love that you complete them. I'm still in process of at least two, and the third one just this morning went to my long armer. It's queen size, so I'm not able at my age to manage such a large one. Thanks for your blog.
