You may recall way back in the spring I made several table runners to sell at our guild's boutique.
One of which was this mini quilt from the book 101 Fabulous small quilts called Scrap Squares. I have a ridiculous amount of pre-cuts in Moda's Papillon by 3 Sisters. (Seriously, I still have an untouched Fat Eighth Bundle)
One of my nearest and dearest friends, from all the way back in middle school, fell in love with this mini and wanted to buy it. Since I had already promised it to the guild, I told her that I would make her one of her very own, but this one had to go to the festival boutique. She was heart broken to find out that the mini had already sold by the time she was able to get to the boutique's table.
So over the summer, true to my word, I began piecing Lori a Scrap Squares quilt of her very own in Papillon. As I laid the fabrics out on the floor, I decided to increase the size of this quilt, from mini (3 by 4 squares) to smaller wall hanging size (5 by 6 squares).
I would also quilt this one differently from the smaller version's straight line quilting in variegated thread.
This time around I chose to do ribbon candy in the sashing in Aurifil 2021 Natural White and continuous curves in all the squares in Aurifil 2405 Oyster.
The binding would be a flanged binding using a soft off white and gray print for the flange and a lovely blue print from the Papillon line of fabric for the main binding.
When I contacted Lori earlier in the week, she was completely surprised to learn that I had made her, her very own Scrap Squares quilt. I know that this quilt will be well loved and that makes me very happy. I have a dream and a wish for this quilt, but that will have to remain between two very good friends.
But for everyone else, how about a few more pictures...
The backing is made from this beautiful blue floral Timeless Treasures print.
And on another happy note for me, the completion of Scrap Squares is the third finish from my 4th quarter list...Woot!!!
