Enjoyed a baby shower recently for one of my niece's who is expecting her first baby in January. I have seen similar quilts in the latest quilt magazines, and I always love doing scrap quilts. This one was a great one to pull out the 2 1/2" strip drawer....yes I said drawer. I have drawers for strips starting at 1" all the way up to 5" and every 1/4" in between. Is this a problem that I could share that tidbit of information and it doesn't bother me what anyone thinks about that???? But I digress.....Any hoo..... I pulled all of the blue and yellow strips that I thought would play well together.
Then I found a basket full of novelty samples, that someone gave me a long time ago and I cut up several of those to add to the mix. I love to use novelties in all of my quilts. It is like finding a surprise picture in the piece.
I quilted it with a simple all over loop 't loop. And to make the binding scrappy.... I used some of the leftover blue strips and pieced them together to do the binding. I did cut them down to 2" wide instead of 2 1/2". A very simple, fun piece with a lot of possible color variations to make it your own. :)
