This quilt came to be because of some leftover blocks from another project. I framed a 5″ neutral square with 2 1/2″ strips of various fabrics, and them trimmed the 7 1/2″ so the center block was tilted.
Of course, I only had 11 leftover blocks, which doesn’t make much of a quilt! I complemented with others squares from complementary fabric in baseball and golf prints, and some coordinating neutral squares. That brought the size up to about 42 x 49″, which is a good size lap quilt for a child.
For the quilting, I did freeform FMQ stars in the middle of the neutral blocks, and a meander to travel from block to block.
This will get donated to DFACs through my local guild!
