Mollie of the Heartstrings Quilt Project Group I belong to issued a challenge for July and August to make Heartstring quilts with light colored centers. Well, here it is almost October and I finally finished a top 60 x 78. I used a light gray floral print and had just enough for the blocks with a little bit to spare. I wanted to use a garbage bag full of light colored quilt trimming strings and I used about half of the bag. That's about the extent of any light colored fabrics or scraps around here. For the border I used another gray floral piece that looks like it is left over from a maternity top I made in the 80s. (I might have made a little dress for my daughter with that same lovely piece of calico).
And if I ever get it quilted (after I piece together some batting pieces) it will be a donation quilt.
Can you tell I use a lot of cotton sheets for quilt backs?
Since I definitely used scraps I'm going to link up to Oh Scrap! at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework.
