This quilt came about from the Color Intensive Workshop taught by Rachel at Stitched In Color. We had an assignment to pick colors from our color card that represented a feeling or an emotion. I chose cozy and here's my color palette:
Then we were supposed to pull fabrics to go with our color cards:
If I'm going to take the time to pull fabrics then I should use those to make a quilt! I was missing a dark brown, so after a fabric shopping trip last month I chose the zig zag pattern that's made from rectangles (as opposed to HSTs). I also removed the lightest yellow print, because it was too light. It's not a huge quilt as I have been making them with nursing home recipients in mind.
My cute helpers were being playful as we took some photos!
As I was trimming the sides of the quilt top, I was thinking there should be some way to use those odd shapes. I sewed 2 pieces together to make a square, sashed them with 1 inch black strips and sewed them in a line. It looks more impressive in person! Anyway, I was pleased with myself for using the scraps on the back of my quilt.
Thanks for stopping by!
