January's project was bars of fabric cut out of chunks of your scraps in various widths, but all 5 inches high. I pulled lots of fabric choices with the idea of making my bars in rainbow colors. I was actually surprised at how many scraps I had that would work for this purpose! One of my favorite parts of making a quilt from scraps is finding bits of my favorite fabrics to include. I love these stars, moons, and suns!
They went to gether to form this:
I have to admit I didn't have anything in my stash to make the sashing, so I hit Hobby Lobby last weekend and found a nice, neutral, cream-colored floral that worked nicely. I cut my sashing at 5 inches wide also, so that I could get the size of the quilt top up to about 40 inches by 50 inches. I think this will make a fun baby quilt for someone. And if not a gift for someone, certainly a quilt I have enjoyed putting together, which is all I seem to need these days!
