True to the origins of quilting, made a quilt entirely out of left over fabric from another one. Earlier this year I made a Sawtooth Star Quilt for a friend of mine using Hometown fat quarter bundle by Sweetwater. If you recall during the making of this quilt I put together blocks from corners of the flying geese. In the end I had 32 blocks that I sewed together on point with 1" wide sashing to give me a throw sized quilt top.
Once I put the top together I did not have enough for the back. I was determined not to buy or add fabric from another collection to this quilt. So I foraged all the scraps from my scrap bin and put together a Denyse Schmidt style improv strip. To my surprise it turned out just big enough to cover the back along with some left over fabric from the same collection.
For some reason this quilt was very hard to photograph. It looks very washed out in the picture. I had the same problem when I was trying to photograph the Sawtooth Star quilt too. Must work on my photography skills :)
Since this quilt is made up of very small pieces on both the front and back I decided to quilt densely in straight lines along the seams, in the hope to further reinforce them. You can see a close up here.
For the binding I managed to salvage enough of the red dot fabric and it frames the quilt nicely.
Signing off with a few more pics.
