Because of the scrappy nature of this quilt, I opted to use bits and pieces for the back too. I had just enough of a few flannels to piece together a backing. This should keep a baby warm and cozy : )
I love this quilt not only for it's simplicity, but for it's economic qualities as well. What could be more simple than tiny bits sewn onto the corners of squares? I first saw this about a year ago on "Blue Elephant Stitches" and saved a picture of it. Jolene's blog has been such an inspiration to me, and sadly she is backing away from the blogging world. She is on to different things but you can still stop by her blog for about a month or so to have a look around. All the best in the future Jolene.
I want to make
three hundred several of these and send them to Guatemala next year.
Hold me to it, okay?
This fabric came in today. Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket for Moda. This may have to be my next project.
Such soft, calming colours.
That's it for now.
