I thought I'd quickly pop in to share a recent finish - A scrappy, improv baby quilt.
I started out with several scraps in greens and aquas, randomly sewed them together and used my 6" x 24" ruler to clean up the edges and create the scrappy bricks. I cut two of them in half in order to create the off-set pattern. The "mortar" is made up of 2 1/2" wide white sashing strips.
I practiced my FMQ skills with an allover stipple - it was fast and fun. I love how those squiggles look like sea monsters or moose antlers or kelp. A polka dot backing was the perfect finishing touch, and since this little guy is 36" x 48", I didn't even have to piece the backing - BONUS!
My favourite thing about this quilt? The tropical colour palette. It was a nice reprieve from the ultra-wintery weather of February. I'm happy to say that it's starting to feel like spring might actually be on it's way.
This takes care of goal #5 on my Quarter 1 FAL list.
