Pardon the crappy indoor pics, but I had to get this off to the auction committee, so crappy indoor pics were the best I could do!
I can't believe it's taken me until now to put together a simple scrappy square patchwork quilt, but I must say it will not be my last. I am loving how all the colors play together, and the simplicity of the piecing really lets them stand out.
I raided my yellow, green and orange scrap bins to start with, and then added a few pops of aqua and red to add some visual interest. I incorporated a few scraps of some of my absolute favorite prints, (hello Tufted Tweets), and with the pops of light grey (my newest obsession) to work as a neutral, this just screams "happy" to me.
This quilt is headed off to our local heart association chapter's annual Heart Gala to be auctioned off along with this pretty cool Mamaroo. I'd say this package is headed to one hip mama.
I'd been wanting to try out Bertha's walking foot, and I thought this was the perfect quilt for it. I straight line quilted 1/4" on either side of all the seams, and let me just say the ease of my machine/walking foot combo has restored my faith in straight line quilting.
On an aside, this quilt makes me happy for another reason, in that it came entirely from my stash! Even the backing was from stash, and I even pieced together scraps of batting instead of buying new, which worked like a charm.
