This week I finished the D4P, and then made the scraps into a fun baby quilt. Read more about the construction here. I made this (these) to use some small pieces of fabrics. I won an eclectic bundle back in August. It had some quarter yards, some fat quarters, some were “Wee Wanders” by Sarah Jane. I also had some floral remnants left from bundles I had purchased. All were pretty small pieces. I knew I wanted to do a color fade. I looked at a few patterns, including Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, but I came back to the D4P. I added some Phillip Jacobs prints, some delicious coral batik, and some dark coral grunge.
I stitched in the ditch between blocks, then quilted large roses and stylized flowers all over, using Bottom Line in Blush.
For the baby quilt, I left out the darker fabrics, and paired it with a yummy Martha Negley strawberry, raspberry, meringue print.
I liked the spirograph-style flowers so well that I put them all over this quilt, as well as wavy lines, using a variegated pink Sulky thread. I ran all the stitching edge to edge, so there were no slippery ends to bury.
Hope those of you in colder areas are staying warm and catching up on your sewing.
