My elder daughter has finished her grade two school year, and as has been tradition since she started Junior Kindergarten, I made her teacher a quilt. To be honest, the way I decided on this particular colour scheme and pattern was my overflowing "cool" scraps bin. I chopped up 3.5" squares from every blue scrap that seemed appropriate (not so much with the sharks, for example). I then went through my white scraps and found a big stack of white-on-white 3.5" squares from I don't even know what project. Meant to be! They formed the middle white squares of these nine patches. The only stash (instead of scrap) I needed to use for the quilt top was some Kona White for the sashing.
|I love how all the light-to-dark blues results in so much movement in the quilt.|
|I did a free motion meandering stipple, despite my recent FMQ practice, because I needed it to be FAST.|
|Despite not being pieced so well, this particular block has my favourite combination of scraps. I kind want a whole quilt in navy now!|
|That mint print is an odd one. What was I thinking? But it worked well for this quilt!|
|My daughter made the label for the quilt, just as she did last year.|
