This week-end, I was inspired by Dominique over at the Running Thimble. She made a lovely girly toddler quilt just because she felt like it. Looking at some of the fabrics that arrived in my Hawthorne Threads Fresh Scrap Pack, I decided to follow her lead.
I also copied Dominique (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?) and kept it sweet and simple. Just some 4½ inch squares, easy and fun to sew together. I started with the idea that it would be 40 by 60 inches, but scaled it back once I started cutting. My inspiration fabric was the floral with the roses... hence the inclusion of the red. It made me uneasy given the greens I'd chosen, but I think it worked out in the end.
Here she is all sewn together!
This is my first time using such a funky ruler. It's well marked and made cutting the triangles really easy. Helps that the ruler inventor and pattern designer are one in the same.
Phew! Now that I look at it, that's a lot of quilting for a couple days! Time to heat up some planned overs and relax for a bit!
And I am outta here!
