April 2012 Project #2

I actually competed another project this month! I went to my first quilt retreat a couple of weeks ago. I was well prepared with several projects that I’d had the time to pre-cut. This quilt was one of them. In a mad dash to the finish, I completed the top!

The pattern is called “Moose Crossing.” It’s supposed to be a scrap quilt (think 126 rectangles plus several larger squares). I had a ton of purple fabric from all the freebies on shop hops and gift baskets, so that’s what I used. The sashing is a minty green that matches the (minuscule) leaves in one of the fabrics.

It measures 60″x60″ so it’s basically a lap quilt. Here’s a closeup of the center and a peek at the backing.

I just used the backing as my binding. The thought of trying to find another fabric for binding made my head hurt.

They’re not really my colors, so I don’t want to keep it. There were a couple of people at work who hinted they might like it. We’ll see…

Until next time!

Twisty Quilt

I made a quilt.  It’s full of pretty purples and greens with a little beige and brown thrown in for contrast.  It’s all twisty and interesting looking.  Best of all?  It didn’t cost very much because I mostly made it out of fabric I already had in my stash.

So…  this quilt is totally not me.  The colors aren’t me, but the pattern is.  And try as I might, I don’t “see” who this quilt might be for.

It may just end up being a Christmas present, so I can’t post a picture of it yet.  Gotta keep looking at it and thinking…
