This quilt started out as a collection of leftover strips from a Saturday Sampler quilt, Sparkling Gems (which I never got a picture of – boo!) We received monthly bits of fabric to use for the main blocks, and had a number of leftover trimmings that measured 1 1/2 – 2″ by various lengths. The batiks were too pretty to just chuck so I held on to them until I finally just started improv piecing them together with leftovers of the background fabric.
The total size is around 43 x 64″ – a bit longish, but I didn’t want to leave any strips out! To quilt it, I did wavy horizontal lines in the background and did a straight line with repeating circle motif in the all the colored bits. Nina is helpfully showcasing that design below.
I’m not quite sure where will this go, or what purpose it will serve. It might get donated, or I might keep it because I love the bright colors!
