It’s rare that I do an overtly “girly” quilt for a number of reasons: I’m not overly girly, my daughter isn’t super girly, and I’m conscious that in charitable quilting, boy quilts are often not as “cute” as girl quilts. As a result of not doing girly quilts, though, I still seem to have a pile up of pinks and purples pile up in my scraps.
To use up some of these in a not-too-cutesy quilt, I made a number of these blocks from the book Scraps, Inc. It’s worth noting my background corners are slightly bigger than the pattern calls for because of the sizes I keep my scraps in, and thus my petals are “pointier” than originally called for.
They’ll be set on point with alternate spacer blocks in some of the same whites, and thus I will have one of my first charity quilts for the year!
