About a month ago I saw this scrappy quilt block on a blog.
When making quilts you tend to have lots of l, 2, and 3 inch stripes left over so
I went to my scrap basket and pulled them all out and got busy with my iron.
The center stripe is old fabric from my Mom. It used to be curtains.
I love how it all came together.
I made 30 blocks and spread them out on the floor.
I did not like the left side of the quilt so I went back to the scrap basket and made more blocks.
I am calling this quilt "Primary Colors".
I finished it off with a 2 1/2 inch border.
Now it is ready for the quilter.
We drove to Iowa for an Aunt's funeral in June and I loved seeing all the different green colors in the fields. They have had so much rain in Iowa and the crops looked beautiful. I got the idea to another scrappy stripped quilt and calling it "Fields of Iowa". I had picked up a lot of Shamrock fabric over the years and knew I could work it all into this quilt.
A close up picture of some of the squares with the shamrock fabric added into the block.
Surprising how much green fabric I had in my drawer.
I used the black fabric as the center stripe in this quilt
representing the good black dirt you find in Iowa.
Here are 13 blocks laid out that I made yesterday.
The "Primary Colors" quilt has 48 blocks so
I will be heading back to the sewing machine today.
Thanks for stopping by...
