I used a scrap of old navy blue fabric with some gorgeous shirting yardage. It was less then ideal (block was too small), so I tried a different setting on my needle and another scrap of blue - Voile it worked perfectly! Piecing curves used to scare me, but not any more! Getting the centre perfect is going to require some unpicking, but thats OK as the rest of the block goes together fairly easily.
So now the production lines commences and a new quilt is in progress!
Blue and white quilts has been on my mind for awhile - as images were popping up online and I was sewing miles of binding on these two beauties.
I have made this pattern, in this colour combination before, as well as a autumn toned version. Its a great scrap quilt pattern and easy to sew. But I just had this fixation that I had to get rid of those pre cut 5" squares and 5 x 2.5" rectangles. .
So when the larger sized quilt was finished and there was still a pile of squares and rectangles, I just kept sewing! There was a whole lot of searching through scrap bins for neutrals, to get it finished, but I got there in the end. Simple quilting, scrappy binding and using up some much loved backing resulted in a great finish, I am really happy to donate these as teenage quilts for a children's charity.
Happy quilting Sue.
