Happy New Year, friends! I’m running super late on this as well as everything that’s sewing related at the moment. Life and school is keeping me incredibly busy and sewing time has taken the back seat for now.
The mini quilt for the Schnitzel & Boo swap was due last week. I put this together in the late hours of a couple of evenings and it was an awesome way to wind down and close the day. I have never sewn something so twee and little as these two inch quarter square triangles. It’s not perfect but it came out quite similar to what I imagined. I made some slight changes to the finishing touches and added pom poms instead of tassels. I hope this will be a little more low maintanance for the lovely person receiving this.
I’m in LOVE with the chambray mixed with the fresh, light colours, espescially the mustard. I think I will have to make another quilt using this fabric combo. For the backing I used a sweet IKEA rosali fabric and the one untrimmed block I had left from piecing the top.
This was my original idea from a few months back, if you want to compare it with the final result.
