Yea, I can sew again. OK, only in short bursts but that is progress.
I have seen this block popping up in various places around blog land. Don't know what it's called or if it has a traditional quilt built around it but this is what I have done with it. Each block took about a half hour to put together. About what I can sit still for.
My base block measures in at 12 1/2 inches by 22 1/2 inches. So this quilt comes in at about 44 x 50.
I made it using up left overs from the Kona Sunrise Colorstory Jelly Roll I got for the Kona blog hop from last winter. It was a great help that the fabric was pre cut.
The quilt is for a baby shower I am attending this weekend. I've know the mom since she was eight. She is now in her mid to late 20's. Time is a flying by.
I had some bits and pieces left from the front and then I tossed in a couple more strips to make the strip of color down the back and I used a few more strips for the binding. I used about 20 strips and then one of the Kona Whites, can't remember which one. When I replenish my stock my LQS tells me what I buy. They keep much better records than I.
The backing is all wonderful black on white kitties. I bought this fabric at Hobby Lobby last year for a quilt back and loved it so much that I went and back and picked up some more. Oops that picture is upside down.
I love how bright and cheery this quilt turned out. I love bright for babies.
I think I will try and whip up another one of these strictly from my scraps. I think I have a good collection on 2 1/2 inch strips in a drawer somewhere. I think I will make it a bit bigger, maybe starting with a 14 1/2 inch strip instead of a 12 1/2. That will make the blocks 14 1/2 by 26 1/2 and a quilt of maybe 50 x 62 with out borders. I have one more quilt to start for this years H2H and this may be it.
