|Yay! : )|
|Check out the coolio quilting.|
|I got to use so many low-volumes in this project.|
|The whole (huge!) thing was trimmed in this mustardy net print from Dear Stella.|
I’m super excited to have this done. If you’re looking for a good way to blow through your scraps, I recommend this quilt pattern. Here are the important details:
Design: Obsession, from Quilt-opedia, by Laura Jane Taylor
Size: 80” by 80”
Quilting: by the talented Garden Gate Quilting
Scrap usage: 400 4½” and 5” squares—woo hoo!
See Kinda Quilty for another example of this quilt. That’s the one that turned me on to this design in the first place. : )
So I have another scrap quilt in the works for March, but you and I both know that one quilt will not clean out that bin. Do you have a suggestion for another scrappy design? I have a copy of Alexandra Ledgerwood’s Improvising Tradition and am thinking of using her piecing method to do something scrappy. What do you think? Can you imagine a scrappier version of Paper and Plums in cool purples, blues, and greens?
Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday, Finish It Up Friday, TGIFF, and Scraptastic Tuesday ...
