This blog is the collision of my hobbies (scrapbooking & quilting) as well as my professional interests.

Trying to be diligent and use up scraps, I made this simple patchwork quilt. This has fabrics from two different projects in it, so I think I have been very thrifty. The flannel I purchased at Fabricland during a sale, for less than $3/ meter which is a super good deal. Even the batting is scraps that were pieced together using the heat and press tape. So far I have been having good luck with that stuff.
Warm Patchwork - boy
Anyways, these are 4.5" squares pieced randomly to make the quilt top that I think is more boyish.
The back is a mossy green flannel and the binding is yet another 1/2
meter cut that I was able to use up from the stash. Arlene quilted it using a simple leaf motif that is effective and subtle. It is 36 X 48 inches, a good size for a crib or covering up a baby carrier. While my patches aren't as cool as Rita's from Red Pepper Quilts is I think there is something very charming about it. Maybe its the Riley Blake Lions!
