I couldn’t resist whipping up a quick top to follow Leah Day’s quilt-along. I designed it to end up crib size – easy enough to get a 40 by 60 inch top if you use 10 inch blocks.
Making the blocks wonky resulted in a pile of trimmings, so I set out to make another top to use those up. Then another to take care of the odds and ends still sitting on my cutting table. The quilt on the right in the pic below used the trimmings, the one on the left the other bits and bobs.
I don’t consider either one done yet. I’m going to use them for practice pieces – paintsticks and rubbing plates on the first one, appliqued circles using my new circle cutter for the other. When I’m done I’ll either have an art piece – or something to chop up and make a new scrap quilt from.
The first one, of course, is for free-motion quilting practice, and will be given to charity once finished.
