Both of these two need to stop growing!
I started making this quilt right after Halloween to be my “slow sewing” project through the season…but instead I ignored most my adult responsibilities and sewed it together within a week or two.
I stink at slow-relaxing sewing projects…I can’t work on anything else until they are DONE.
The quilt pattern is Pixel Chain, and I cut 2 1/2″ strips to use from my red and green stash. I tried to use up all my random leftover bits of fabrics for this one!
The background is scrappy low volume prints instead of one solid. I threw a solid white in there too, which ended up being a little too “off white” for my liking, but it’s not as noticeable sewn together.
My helper and I taped the blocks to the wall (with Diagonal Seam Tape LOL) because 4 kids + puppy + dirty floor + no design wall set up yet.
There are only 30 blocks for this size, which ends up being a good large throw or even a twin size. I’m going to keep this one folded at the foot of our bed.
I sent this one off to be quilted with the softest minky backing ever. I don’t think it will be done before Christmas but I’m going to love pulling this one out next year!
