When I first saw Louvered, the second quilt in Kelly's book, I knew it was one I'd enjoy making! A rainbow of scrappy bits of fabric, tied together with a low volume background fabric - my favorite kind of project!
I began with my scraps, sorted by color, matching up like sized pieces.
These color blocks grew until I had enough to start cutting 3.5 x 8.5 "bricks," and I decided I would need four of each color.
Kona Cream for a background pulled everything together into four larger blocks, measuring about 13 x 18.
And then... I finished them into four mini Louvered quilts...
Quilted with my favorite wavy lines and bound in a rainbow of matching Kona solids, these turned out to be perfect for some scrappy placemats on my dining room table!
You might notice that I made one more for the center of the table - combining all four colors!
Sometimes when you start sewing scraps together, you just can't stop.
These are going to be fun to use with my Fiesta Ware!
