This is one of the more intense quilts from the book, but I have to say that it was totally worth it! This is also the smallest quilt in the book, finishing at 50" x 60", which is still an appropriate lap size quilt. I wanted ALL of these quilts to be something that I could snuggle under!
This quilt utilizes the binding triangles... you know, the triangles that are cut off after mitering strips of binding together. (You can go ahead and groan.... I'm used to it!) I used a variety of whites and creams from the scrap basket for the background pieces, because I wanted this to be a true scrap quilt.
I pieced this quilt a little bit at a time. After pressing the blocks, I piled them in a basket and trimmed them in the evenings or whenever I had a spare moment. It helped to break down the tasks into little, bite-sized pieces. As the blocks were completed, I put them up on a design wall so I could see my progress. As the quilt grew, the motivation to keep going increased. (That is a very good thing!) It also helped me to see what colors or values that I needed to add.
