I first started to see these quilt blocks pop up on Instagram while I was visiting my family for Christmas. At first I wasn't interested, but by the time I got home I couldn't wait to get started. I have really loved working on this quilt and definitely think that I will make another one at some point. Most of the fabrics are from my scrap bin, but since I made this with my nephew in mind I tried to leave out anything pink, purple, or flowery. Considering that at least half of the fabrics in my stash fall into one of those categories, I had to venture a little bit outside of the scrap bin.
This one is going to be a little difficult for me to give away. It is a great couch size (60x72) and I have grown very attached to it.
For the backing I used this Chicopee plaid print.
I had a hard time choosing a fabric for the binding, but I decided to go for another Chicopee print. I was really proud of myself for using up a fabric that was in my stash, but now that I am finished with the quilt I am a little concerned that that print is all gone now and I might need to order some more!
This is the first scrap quilt I have made and it is making me very excited to get started on my Maple Leaf Rag Quilt from Material Obsession II.
