This is a really simple quilt to make - a lap size needs 12 far quarters, plus yardage for borders, backing, and binding. The quilt above is made from fabric my quilt group dyed in a member's backyard one summer day way back when! We had fun with that experience and I enjoyed making this quilt out of the fabric afterwards. I added in the black yardage, and used scraps from the dyed fat quarters for the binding. For quilting, I tied it with variegated embroidery floss.
When my oldest son asked me to make him a new quilt, I thought of this pattern, and back in December I bought 12 fat quarters of Grunge to make his quilt with.
Recently, I've had the chance to get the blocks cut and pieced for this quilt. They go together pretty fast - you cut each fat quarter into 6.5 and 3.5 inch strips, then sew the strips together in various combinations, cut again, and sew up three different sets of blocks.
I played with a layout yesterday afternoon, and came up with this -
It's meant to be random and has a scrappy look to it, which I really like. It shouldn't take long to get this flimsy sewn together, and a border added.
This pattern uses up all the fabric pretty efficiently - only a few scraps are left, and mostly because I cut wrong once or twice...(wink!) Fortunately, there were plenty of pieces that I cut right!
Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday!
