This weeks game of catch up involves a lovely little scrap quilt I made last year…
The pattern is an Irish Chain variation and I had a blast using all the little bits of blue scraps I had accumulated…and it was surprising how many little bits I had.
I used 2 1/2 inch squares for the nine patch block… lots of little bits from mini charm packs I had accumulate over time… and the snowball block started as a 6 1/2 inch square of low volume blues & white prints.
Again I was surprised by how many of those I had in my stash. It always surprises me when I get an idea in my head and then find everything I need in my stash…. though sometimes it disappoints me too as I loose my excuse to pick upnbnew fabric when my stash provides.
The back of the quilt was also from my stash. Awhile ago I picked up a few yards of this wonderful Laura Ashley print at a Thrift store. I do not often thrift my fabric but I could. not leave this fun print behind…. and as all the quilts are washed before donating I was not worried about using it as a back.
This was actually the last shot of an afternoon of quilt photography. Mr Wombat was such a good sport… patiently humoring me as I drove around the neighborhood looking for fun quilt locations. I think sometimes he misses the days when I used to just hang the quilts on the back fence!
