This quilt is from Amanda Jean and Cheryl's book, Sunday Morning Quilts. This is one of those quilts that sometimes I love and sometimes I don't love. I love the pattern and I love the original in the book, I just don't love mine. I wish I would've used another color with the pink and blue, so the blocks would stand out a little better.
But then, other times I look at it up close and LOVE all the little pieces of fabric (they are little, this block finishes at 4.5 inches).
I started making these blocks at least a year ago, probably more, just so I could use up my overflowing pink and blue scraps. I thought it would end up bigger, but as other projects started piling up, this one got pushed to the back burner.
Eventually I settled on baby size (a good friend had a baby girl), and I was pretty much done with all the blocks. All I had to do was sew them together. I love a quick finish.
I did add some color on the binding...a pretty yellow stripe. I think this helps it out a lot.
I quilted it in loops going across the quilt. I love this quilting, it's fast and easy.
Then as I was getting ready to package this quilt up, I noticed a tiny hole (looked like scissors had snipped it) on of the small scraps. I was frustrated. Part of me wished I hadn't even seen it. What to do??? The quilt was totally finished. I HATE starting over or unpicking.
I ended up making a small patch out of the same fabric, and hand stitching it to the top. I think it worked out pretty well. I'm don't know that anyone will ever notice. I hope it holds up...
