This quilt somehow seems like it should be bigger than it is.
But, it isn’t–just 40″ x 48″.
Another freemotion quilting experiment. For those of you who are good at this, don’t smile too hard at my first attempt at pebbling. I call them “fruity pebbles” and pretend that is what I meant to do.
The back again gives clues to the front.
I’m really not sure what to do with it. I just liked the colors and THE PATTERN. Some things just exist for themselves. And that is OK.
The last month of school is always a big push and it is all a person can do to keep their head above water, but a little sewing can be fit in.
I know I wasn’t up for anything complicated and these cute “traffic” fabrics came in a bag of scraps. They could be a quilt.
No tutorial, but here is how I did it. The “traffic” fabric was different size strips and small pieces. I cut them to likely sizes and framed them with solid scraps, then trimmed the blocks to 6-1/2″ x 9-1/2″. Do this 24 times.
Lay them out in alternating horizontal and vertical rows. Ta-dah! A quilt top. Finishes at 36-1/2″ x 36-1/2″.
Friday was my last day of class. Give me a week or so to sleep (really, I nap a lot the first week of June) and I’ll have a lot to share again.
