At the end of August I posted a photo of a bunch of
quilt blocks I had made from 1 1/2" strips of
reproduction fabrics left over from a log cabin
quilt I had made for my sister and brother-in-law.
I had just placed them on my design wall,
trying to figure out what to do with them.
Wanda from Exuberant Color, along with a couple of other quilters,
said to sew them all together and call it a day.
This made my head hurt!
I love bold and wild quilts,
but they usually have some rhyme or reason to them.
After pondering for a while,
I decided I would do what they suggested.
Here is the finished quilt.
I don't hate it, but I'm not a huge fan, either.
Making these blocks was mindless fun, though.
Part of the problem is I don't like reproduction fabrics
anymore. I went through a phase when I did.
Hence, the large collection of them.
I did as Wanda suggested and used flannel for the backing.
I quilted it with organic straight lines,
gave it a wash and it is ready to be donated
to the local Veterans Hospital.
Thank you, Wanda, for your advice!
It is a warm and snugly quilt!
