The other day I showed you a cushion cover made with a lovely bright striped fabric . . .
Well . . . I had plenty left after my first sewing session, so I scouted around for some more zany fabrics and an excuse to patchwork.
Found some more “vignettes” in my drawer
all very bright and great for a child’s quilt . . . so I trimmed up my squares and then set to making blocks.
As bad luck would have it, I soon realised I wasn’t going to have enough stripes to make 9 identical blocks (although if I hadn’t made the cushion cover first, I would have) . . . so totally unphased, I just added another fabric
And for the moment I have a quilt top that looks like this
I won’t be quilting or binding just yet. This has been made with no particular person in mind, so I’m not in a hurry to finish it off. I will, however, be keeping that solid yellow fabric to one side since that will be my binding.
And while on a roll . . . and before putting scraps away . . .
A 12” scrappy block to go in the drawer ^^
