My lack of new sewing progress to share this week has prompted me to re-visit my Throwback Thursday series. Today I'm sharing about a quilt that I made my sister for her 30th birthday.
This quilt was born out of fabric cheapness frugality. At the time that I made this quilt I was also working on my XOX quilt which had generated some irregularly wedge-y, triangle-ish shaped scraps that were too big to toss away but too wonky to use in a traditional application. So, I just started sewing those wonky bits together all willy-nilly to create my own scrappy fabric, which I then cut into squares. These little art blocks reminded me of tiny abstract paintings, so I went with it, creating "frames" with grey borders and a "gallery wall" with white sashing.
I finished this quilt up with a cozy black and white flannel backing and bound it with teal polka dots. Happy Thursday Everyone! --Liz
