This is a scrappy quilt of my own design that I made in March of 2014 for the baby of a young lady that befriended Son #2 when they were toddlers at Sunday School. Through the years I have had the pleasure of spending time with her as her Sunday School teacher, GIA leader, Awana leader, VBS leader and as a MS and HS Youth leader. It was such a pleasure making this quilt for her little girl, Emma.
It is a scrappy quilt that I designed on the fly.
It was my first attempt at free flow design and I did not piece this thing efficiently.
I started strip piecing but ran out of some of the fabrics and had to substitute an alternate pattern in the same color to continue the continuity. This meant that I had to cut the stripped panel into the thinner strips and then add pieces individually. Once I had my desired width I offset the strips by three blocks by removing a section at one end and adding to the other side end.
This created a rolling pattern that I really like.
I backed it with a piece of Ludovika I purchased at Ikea. I was trying to get the ever popular Britten Nummer but they were out so I picked up a collection that they had marked down.
I want to make this again but change the order of the stripes so that they white
and color widths are in the opposite direction.
This is a tag I made on printable fabric that I have used on several projects.
The back grown is Kona Snow and the Binding is from the Comma collection by Zen Chic.
Machine finished as always.
