Michiko, my Japanese friend, and I went to work cutting and piecing blue scraps. Amanda Jean would be proud of us. She inspires us all to use our fabric scraps. I find it a lot of fun and satisfying. The only part I don't love is having to iron before cutting, but we didn't have a lot that needed ironing...yeah!
The squares were cut at 3 inches. The quilt is 16 squares by 15 squares in size.
|I machine quilted straight lines (didn't even put the walking foot on!) on one side of each seam, across and up and down the whole quilt. This step went real fast.|
...even a little blue elephant to take naps with Otto!
