Alrighty, folks...I have finally finished the second scrap quilt I actually like. Well, sorta finished. If a section of that binding looks a little fat it's because it's not hand sewn to the back yet. SHHH...don't tell.
I really like this design for scraps. It would work perfectly with a jelly roll for the 4 patches and a solid honey bun for the sashing.
I decided to try a very bubbly quilting that is sort of like the pumpkin patch quilting I tried from Leah Day's Freemotion Quilting Project. I wasn't as happy with this on the backside:
but ya know, it did give a really neat texture and I get very bored with just stippling. I want to be good at quilting, not just piecing. To do that, I have to practice. I am giving this to a very sweet person who won't judge my imperfect quilting. If you are giving quilts to people who will judge you, you are giving quilts to the wrong people!
I really like the fact that this is kind of I-Spyish since this will be going to a baby in a house full of children. I think it will be fun for them. I can picture mom nursing the baby under the quilt while she asks the big brother and sister to find pictures on the quilt.
