As I mentioned yesterday, I believe I've had these 'blocks' cut out for at least 10 years. Long enough that I don't really remember them. I think I started to make a baby quilt, and then realized I had no idea what I was doing.
So Tuesday, I was going through my sewing cupboard, and these were in the way, so I decided to just get something done with them. I was so tired of moving them around.
The blocks were not even or straight. I sewed them together anyway. Then decided to quilt with wavy lines. It helps mask the lack of straight lines in the piecing.
I found Icky on it Wed morning in the sun. Just for the record, this is not OK. Cats aren't allowed on the furniture on our house. But I did snap a picture before I shooed her away.
This is the backing fabric. Age ??? Let's call it vintage. hah!
These shots are after I washed and dried it.
Nice soft crinkles.
The binding was made by piecing all the leftover 'blocks' into a long strip. I wouldn't suggest doing that. Lots of seams to sew over. But I did use up every scrap that was laying around!
Another shot of the quilting, from the back.
Finished size 16.5" x 19" Just right for a dolly!
I think my niece will be getting this as part of her Christmas presents from us.
And here I said I wasn't doing any sewing for Christmas!
