This is a queen sized quilt made from 2 different nine patch blocks. Most of the fabrics came from my 2.5 and 5 inch scrap bins. It started out to be a lap quilt, but I had too many scraps, so I was going to make 2 lap quilts.
Then I decided it should be a bed quilt, but there were too many blocks for a twin. I was short 15 blocks for a queen. So do you add a border or go on the hunt for more fabric? Well, I was blessed to find a few more pieces in my scrap bin and I cut some matching prints that were left in my stash. I did have to buy one green fat quarter.
After the top was done, I measured all my leftover big pieces, got my notebook and started sketching out a layout for the back. It changed slightly from my drawing, but I like how it turned out. Even though it may never be seen, I didn't have to buy any fabric for the back! It's the year of the stash and I'm trying hard to keep it.
This was my OMG for May. It was a big goal and I'm glad it's finished! You can see links to other's May goals at Red Letter Quilts. You can also find this quilt in my shop.
