Finished! I join in on the #scrappytripalong trend a month or two later than everyone else but once I started I was hooked! The only ‘consistent’ thing I did when making my blocks was having a fabric that read ‘red’ go down the center diagonal. I tried to go light-dark-light-dark…etc throughout the rest of the block but if that didn’t happen I wasn’t too worried. When I laid out my 72 blocks for final piecing I decided that my ‘pattern’ would be just that three red corners had to touch. When I did that I got this cool maze-esque looking design. I’m super happy with it!Once it was all pieced, I sent it to my Aunt Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb for quilting. She choose a great geometric print that goes really nicely with the quilt. Barb also picked out a backing for the quilt from her collection – a fantastic black and white stripe. I bound the quilt in various red fabrics.
It was so big I had to have my husband Jared help me pin it to our deer fence for it’s photo. And even still – it laid on the ground a tad.
I’ll probably be listing this quilt in my etsy shop soon – stay tuned!
