Phone book quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Getting two quilts from the same fabric that I thought would only make one. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're wondering what to do with all those leftover strips and pieces, this is the project to use. It's fairly quick to piece and it's easy to do.

What you will need

  • Scraps leftover from another baby quilt (Pinwheel Polka).

Q&A with leah7

Pepper Cory asked:
This is a beauty. You have an excellent understanding of contrast within the patchwork and yet the quiet grey-blue border is just the thing to set all the brighter colors off-way to go.
leah7 answered:
Thank you so much. I really enjoyed your class! Now I think I'd like to try the puss in the corner quilt. I will definately be making more of these phonebook quilts.
Reetzbobeetz asked:
Fabulous quilt. Love the colour contrasts and the border really sets it off.
leah7 answered:
Thank you! Fortunately, I had enough of the border fabric left from the other quilt.
lrmyr18 asked:
Very nicely done! Wonderful color choices.
leah7 answered:
Thank you. This is a great pattern to use up scraps.
Viki asked:
I love these colors! This is a gorgous quilt!
leah7 answered:
Thanks so much. It's hard to tell in the picture but the light blue border fabric has little dots of color the same as the colors in the quilt.
