Couldn't really think of a better name for this quilt but it does what it says on the tin.
It is Scrappy, using up some old fabrics that have been hanging around a while along with some pieces left over from my dyeing days, when it was all still very new to me, and some odd squares from other projects. There is even some re-cycled denim in it.
It is Happy because the colour scheme dictates that it is, and it grew fast so I was happy making it.
And it is Girly because that's what I had in mind when putting it together.
How did she get such straight quilting lines? I hear you ask.
Here's how; from following the lines on the backing fabric.
The whole quilt actually came about because of this piece of fabric. It was originally purchased to make a dress for my then toddler daughter, but never used because it was too heavy to be worn in the hot climate we were in at the time. I have looked at it time and time again over the years but could never bring myself to cut into it. I finally realised that it was perfect for backing. I quilted down every other blue line using my walking foot. I am sure I am not the first person to have thought of this but I feel quite pleased with myself for having figured it out. I will be on the look out for more stripy backing fabrics.
Apologies for the over exposed quality of these photos but we have had some unexpected sunshine here this morning.There are more shots here.
