Have you ever heard someone say, “If you can sew a straight seam, you can make a quilt”? I can make a quilt, but I can’t seem to sew straight lines very well!
I attempted to quilt this with parallel vertical lines. I followed the edge of my walking foot to try to make all the lines evenly spaced, but they are neither perfectly straight or evenly spaced!
My favorite block is this butter yellow version with the bird in the middle. Every single piece of every single block was made from scraps only, which I’m kind of proud of. I almost cracked on the last green block and used some fabric from my stash, but then I pulled myself together and looked through my scraps one more time to find two strips long enough for the last two sides. Victory!
The binding is this great Loulouthi stripe I had in my stash. And the backing is a SSI yellow swirly fabric I bought in my early sewing days. It’s not something I’d probably buy today, but I’m glad to finally have a use for it!
The finished quilt is made of 42 9 1/2 inch blocks and measures 54” x 63”. It will be gifted at Christmas to relatives visiting my great aunt. She asked me to make a quilt for them. Hope they like it!
