Remember this quilt? That’s the one I made in class with Katie Pasquini Masopust. I pre-cut a few too many strips for that quilt.
So I used the leftovers to make this simple quilt. I didn’t really enjoy making this quilt. But it will be a nice baby quilt for someone.
I thought I had used up all the leftover strips with that quilt. One day I went out to clean up the studio a bit and opened a plastic bin. What??? More leftover strips? Well, I finally remembered that they were the smaller strips (1 1/4 inch) and I had planned to put them in a ziplock bag to give to whomever wanted them.
I looked at them for a few minutes and thought–why not play around with them and see what I come up with.
This is a quilt I made a long time ago, and I really like it. It was the inspiration for how I decided to use these small strips, and how to construct the top.
As I went along, I decided it would be like my own flower garden, that was constructed a bit at a time, fitting things together as we went along.
I didn’t add any more strips to what I already had. I chose a few flower and leaf prints to add to the “garden.”
When I quilted it, I used straight lines and pebbles for the “paths” in my garden. I just outlined the flower and leaf prints.
This is my favorite of all three quilts that I made from those strips.
