Machine Quilted with Loops and Stars
I started making these six inch blocks from scraps a couple of years ago as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. Slowly but surely I made 130 blocks and used a lot of scraps.
I bound it with turquoise polka dots because the backing is turquoise and coincidentally I had just bought a remnant at Hobby Lobby that was just enough yardage for the binding. Serendipity!
For the backing I used a nice soft Twin sized sheet from the thrift store. I used gray thread on top and a blue green (more on the green side) thread in the bobbin. Those were threads I had on hand.
I went with my old standby for for machine quilting star quilts - loops and stars. I guess I need to learn to be more consistent with my stars because sometimes there's blank spaces that could have been filled in a little better. But that's not a bother to me right now.
I think this might be one of the quilts I put in the car survival kits I've made for the adult kids for Christmas.
This was also my December OMG (One Monthly Goal)
And this sure used a LOT of scraps - Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework
