mustard mishap quilt top

I found a few minutes to sew this morning before all the thanksgiving craziness started. It felt great to finish this quilt top! As you can see, I did add the mustard into the mix. I love what it adds! I almost chickened out, but I'm glad I went with it!  The quilt top is 100 scraps: mainly chambray, denim, linen, gingham and a few wovens. Many thanks to Anna for the bag of scraps!

The quilt top measures about 58" x 74".

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating today! I hope your day is fun and stress free. :) Thanks to each and every one of you for stopping by and reading my blog. I'm so thankful that you do. It means more than I can say. xo

A few minutes? How do you do this? Maybe it's time for an YouTube video showing how you go from 'go to whoa' with your improv work? I'd love to see that!

Because of the colours of this quilt it reminds me of the quilts my grandmother used to make out of men's wool suits. They were very utilitarian and warm with sheep wool batting that we made on the farm and then tied the quilt. Everyone had them on their beds during the winter. Thanks for the memories.

Katherine said...

This is gorgeous, the mustard really makes the quilt alive. I love the random piecing x

Marsha L said...

What a great quilt. You should feel virtuous for using all scraps! Our pioneer ancestors would be proud.

Anina said...

What a wonderful modern quilt! Yay for scraps!

The mustard is just the right touch. Thank you for your fun, colorful, inspirational and instructional blog and for linking us all up on Fridays--I look forward to it all week.
