Last summer I was looking at all my scraps and wondering what to do with them. Then it hit me! I will make a quilt for the twin bed we were going to be buying our oldest daughter (as baby #2 was due in Oct). So I start cutting squares- gotta love the rotary cutter for that! I have made alot of scrub tops, shirts, skirts, etc in the last 10 years and had a really bright and colorful mix of fabrics.
I cut out 6" squares, I then laid them out on the floor to find a great mix of colors/patterns. Then I sewed them into blocks of 9. Then sewed them all together until I had a twin bed size quilt top. The backing fabric is flannel, which I thought may help keep the quilt from sliding off the bed. However, a few months passed between the original purchase and piecing it together. I don't recommend that!
I ended up needing more backing fabric and they did not have anymore of the original stuff I bought so that is why there is a band of darker green!
Anyway, just thought I would share with folks that can appreciate a good quilt story!
The label is a nifty little trick my new Pfaff can do!
