With the 4 x 4 pink, gray, and white blocks completed, this quilt went together quickly, and the solid gray offered a good place for some fun quilting.
It’s all from stash, and a lot of 2 1/2″ scraps from many previous projects that were fun to revisit. I made the blocks back in December or January when I was unfocused and needed some mindless piecing to keep me moving forward.
I knew the fuscia hand dyed fabric was the right design choice for the binding, but I was pretty nervous about it bleeding, even though it had been prewashed. I used three Color Catchers when I washed it, but didn’t have a bit of bleeding, so that was a relief. (Reused those C C s later to prewash newly arrived fabric, and they picked up some dye there.) It’s actually two different pieces of hand dye, but we won’t tell, will we? This binding was a lot easier to photograph than the one on my last quilt, so I took photos as I did it for the machine binding tutorial.
This quilt has no current destination. I wanted, for once, to have a quilt ready made for the next quilt drive or disaster, so now I do.
I’m linking up to Finish It Up Friday on Crazy Mom Quilts. (Check this out, I’ve met a lot of fun people over there!)
