Back in May I took part in the Henry Glass Desire to Inspire Challenge. The challenge.... they send you a mystery bundle of fabric and you have 3 weeks to make whatever you like using only the fabrics provided, then post pictures of your creation. You can see my challenge projects here. The project and all the leftover fabrics are yours to keep. My mystery bundle was Toile and Trouble by Shelly Comiskey. With the leftover fabrics and a few solids pulled from my stash I stitched up a very colorful quilt this weekend.
Now let me say I was speed piecing so my accuracy on the blocks wasn't my best work. Since this will be a utility quilt for the grandkids I squared up the blocks the best I could and continued with the pedal to the medal.
I don't think the grandkids will care about accuracy. But they'll love the busy and bright fabrics. It'll be perfect for taking along on hayrides.
A few little fussy cut pieces in the sashing.
My favorite part of the quilt is the corners. It looks complicated but with the strips being the same width I pressed the seams in opposite directions so they would nest together nicely with little pinning. Click here for a tutorial on mitering corners.
There's still more leftover Halloween fabric. Enough for another small quilt and maybe a couple of treat bags for the kids.
I've linked up this post to the following inspiring blogs.
