This is from my wall of green scrappy “made fabric” from a few months ago. This was the ongoing -and apparently unending- task of trying to use up all my scraps for a useful purpose. I got pretty far on using a large portion of green tiny bits and came up with the idea to make a traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern as a companion piece to the star below, which I made last year. I like the contrast of the orderly traditional block pattern with the chaos of the green scrappy made-fabric. Both are around 36-42″ square.
A lovely coworker had an emergency appendectomy over the weekend. Anyone I know that has surgery (or has a baby!) gets a quilt from me!
So this is my take on a “Guy Quilt.” Easy half square triangle blocks at a very large 14″ each. I challenged myself to only use fabric that I had on hand. In this case it was Parson Gray fabric by David Butler that I’d saved for a special occasion. I cut and sewed enough for a second quilt for another “special guy” and still have more leftover!
Note my two cute quilt models – thanks ladies!
