Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsJust enjoy, no rules, this would be a perfect project for a young or new sewer.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Funky, Mod, Casual
Learned new technique on BOM with Amy. I did not mark squares, just grabbed my blocks and the unused strips. Backing is flannel and it was wrapped to front forming binding.
What was your inspiration?
Wanted to use up scraps of material. This seemed like the perfect project to do so.
What are you most proud of?
Finishing it! I plan to make another one real soon.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just do it, cut your blocks out and then put those scraps in a bag and enjoy sewing. My lap size is 15 total blocks, a lap size. I did not add batting and used flannel for the backing. To quilt I used decorative stiches, just practice effect of differnt stiches. I also used different threads, some varigated. I think this type of quilt is vey forgiving.
