The inspiration for this quilt came from Lu Summer's book Scrap Improv. I know I have mentioned my love for this book several times, but it is really a beautiful book. Improv-iness doesn't come naturally to me and this really made me excited about trying out some new things.
The background fabric came from yardage in my stash and is gray Robert Kaufman chambray. The rest of the fabric came from scraps. I quilted with an allover concentric swirl pattern. This is one of my favorite quilting designs but it is definitely one that does not come naturally to me and I have been working hard to improve my swirls. Things went pretty well on this one but I still have plenty of room for improvement.
And the binding is one of Juliana Horner's prints from Joann's. I actually chose this fabric first before I knew what I was going to make and worked backwards. I love the print and I think it makes a fun binding. I like it so much that I thought it deserved its very own closeup photo.
This quilt did put a nice little dent in the scrap bin, but they seem to be multiplying. Good thing I have 2 more sisters who want quilts :)
Finished size: 60"x72"
