Happy Little Quilt Finish
I get to cross another finished quilt off my list. Yahoo!! This one isn't very big but I think it turned out pretty darn adorable!
The inspiration for this project was the little moon/star panel bit that came in a bag of scraps. I came across it when I was digging through my gray scraps. It is a funny shade of gray and coral so I wasn't sure I would have the proper shades of scraps. Ha!
I was able to quickly confirm I had plenty.
I dug though my scraps and cut everything into 3.5" squares. I did find a few fat quarters in my stash that would work so I quickly cut those up with my AccuQuilt cutter.
I decided to go ahead and use the coral and brown stripe I shared in a previous post. I really didn't have anything else that work for the back. I really like how it looks. I quilted it in some swirls and bound it with a black and gold star fabric.
I thought it was funny the quilting now looks like my star is grumpy...
I really like how it turned out. It is 36" square - just perfect for a wee one!
(I don't usually share my "mistakes", but when I was sewing up the bottom four rows, somehow I got the order of the blocks all messed up. I am constantly amazed at how I can turn around things in the three feet I walk from my design wall! So I did end up with some vertical areas of gray not in the original layout...no way I am gonna get out my seam ripper for that!)
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. It is supposed to rain here...I can't wait!!
