Farmhouse Quilt - Scrap Buster for Sure
Up in the studio - working on another Scrap Buster quilt.
I call this one - Farmhouse Quilt (queen size)
Sewing with my old stand by Sears Kenmore, c1992.
I spent the better part of the day, cutting 4" squares from lots of fabric remnants.
My choices of fabrics illustrate my quest to liquidate fabric remnants I've been holding for a long, long time.
Included . . weird themes or patterns--bug eyed fish, Christmas lights, polka dots, paisleys, fruit loops,. One turquoise fabric was so bright I turned it upside down to diminish its brightness. There are little hedge hogs, and tiny kitten fabric too for neutral plain blocks measuring 7.5" square.
Pictured below--the finished backing, and the top--ready to quilt.
No Rules regarding colors for this quilt.
But I deliberately interrupted the flow with a black and white checkerboard fabric (larger pattern), as an exclamation point. Black and White checkerboard with Red Cherries no less.
I'll be offering this queen size quilt for sale at my first show Memorial Weekend. Details to follow in my next post.
Thank you for looking at my work.
