I took the scraps, cut 17 – 3″ squares, added a light aqua and made 4 patches. With the addition of scrappy reds and creams, the 4 patches grew up to be log cabins…and today, they evolved into a quilt. The border is a cream/tan/mocha stripe.
Pattern? Nope. I normally adlib and just start sewing. This time, it worked!
The top finished out at 44″ x 68″. I’ll bind it in red. So…from 17 little 3″ squares, a quilt was born! Thank you WWanda for the inspiration fabric! I have loved that fabric since you showed it to me ages ago in your stash cabinet.
Are you noticing a trend here? The last 3 tops I’ve made and the last quilt I bound…all have lots of red in them! The last 3 tops all have teal too. I like the combination of colors and with the addition of some cream to mocha browns, I’m even happier!
Back to the sewing room to see what other trouble I can get into for tonight. Stashbusting happening here!!!
