96 x 96
I was encouraged by a friend to make this quilt. Sherri from A Quilting Life is leading this sew along called Scrappy Patchwork Quilt Sew Along. The directions were for a large lap quilt, but I decided to make mine into a queen size.
It was Myra's idea to add the pieced border since I didn't have enough of any fabrics to do a border. And I just love it!
The back is an extra wide piece of cream fabric which was so nice because I didn't have to piece anything.
These fabrics all came from my more traditional stash that I have been trying to use up. This quilt made a huge dent in my pile, but I think I still have enough for 2 or 3 more quilt tops. But at least I'm getting used to using these colors. The orange still has me pondering. I think I'll take it out next time and replace it with some cream fabrics.
