Recently, I saw this blog post by Amanda Jean Nyberg and I also read her book No Scrap Left Behind. I liked a lot of quilts in the book, but didn't necessarily want to make them with scraps. So I set out to re-envision her patterns to make quilts with fabric from my stash. For this quilt, I used rectangles and squares, rather than cast-off bits from half-square triangles as she does.
I quilted the quilt on my machine and opted for straight lines - both horizontally and vertically. I would have stopped with just the horizontal lines, but I feel that a quilt has better drape if it's quilted a little more than that would have been. So I went on to add the vertical.
60" x 64"
As mentioned above, I used several different gray and pink fabrics from my stash. The white is a Michael Miller Solid (Bright White), and the backing is Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella. I bound the quilt using sprinkle (Stardust colorway) from Cotton + Steel.
