Spent the day in the sewing room yesterday , what a treat for me!
I am working on a project with this beautiful red print I talked about here on this post.
Some of the left over pieces from the blocks are under the rotary cutter and oh I have a lot of them!
Just had to whip up the little quilt, I was really curious how this fabric would be on a border. Isn't it wonderful! This will be for our entryway table for the holidays.
moda bella solid #60( probably my all time favorite muslin/background solid fabric just looks great with reproduction fabrics in mho)next I sewed them together then cut into 1.5" and made 4 patches.
Laid out the quilt to the size I wanted and cut the borders 3.5" quilt is approx 17" x 21"
before I knew it I had a little quilt made from leftovers! Aren't those just the best quilts?
Have to admit I will be looking at big bold prints like this with a new eye now...love how this fabric cut up and oh love it as a border too.....
