My Friday finish is a quick baby quilt I made using the leftover fabric from the back of another baby quilt.
It started when I pulled out 8 orphan 4 patches.
I decided to make the leftover back piece the center medallion and made a border of 16 patches all around.
The back is a polka dot from my stash with three strips of solids.
While I was making this quilt, I had a flash back to my very quilting days. I was what a kind friend called a “whole cloth” quilter. My quilts usually started with a piece of fabric that I really, really liked and couldn’t cut up…..so I used it “whole.” Gradually I started adding piecing, as you can see below.
Looking back I can appreciate how this technique helped me start quilting but now I realize it is also an easy and fun method for making a fast quilt, something we can all use during the busy holiday season.
Linking up with crazy mom quilts.
