I finished this quilt top some time ago and am finally getting a chance to share a few pictures of the finished product!
I used this tutorial for piecing the squares (i.e. I did NOT sew together teeny tiny squares, but strips), and this book > Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern: Fresh Techniques for Busy Quilters
for piecing the blocks.
All of the prints are a collection of what I like to call “bright low volume” or pretty patterns with a white background. I love the pops of black and white and of course the striped binding is always fun!
The backing fabric is one of my favorites but I can’t recall the name! If anyone knows it, please comment and I’ll add it to this post. I used up every last scrap and didn’t save the selvedge- lesson learned. Eeek.
Each square ends up being 1″ x 1″ – really tiny. My finished quilt measures approximately 25″ 25″. Perfect baby play mat size or carseat blanket. I’ve been washing it and washing it and it’s so thick and soft and lovely. Can’t wait to have a little baby to lay down on it!
