    Default I finished the scrappy quilt

    It's crib size. I posted this for a challenge thread too, but thought I'd post it for you ladies here...



    The backing was given to me via Full Circles (a computer freebie exchange site). I bought the border and binding...for $5. The batting was 1/3 of a 1.5 m length on half price ($15)...so another $5. Not bad.

    It's now hanging on our landing railing at the top of the stairs, hiding computer wires.

    ~Really nice! I really like the homey colors! It looks like an antique quilt actually. How did you quilt it? In what pattern? I can't tell from the pic.~

    I actually used an all over loop pattern on the main part, in a contrasting thread colour. I did a leaf and flower pattern on the border. Not ideal, but I suck at straight line machine quilting. though I did do 'x's on the corner squares.

    That's a pretty little scrap quilt. I love the color choices and the pattern layout fits nicely with those colors. You do awesome work!

    Beautiful! Maybe someday I will try to quilt. It just seems like so much figuring to me.

    lilk, actually this one was easy. It was 2 1/2" squares of light and dark fabric. I sewed them four to a square, with the light and dark in the right places (1 square of 4 light pieces, 1 square of 4 dark pieces, and 2 squares with light and dark) and put them into the right place...like a jigsaw puzzle. Didn't have to worry about fancy piecing like you do with triangles or curves. It's a variation of a design I saw in a magazine a couple years ago.
