I made cushions with the leftover 2 1/2" squares - mini quilts, really, with envelope backs. One was 26" and one was 24".
I started with this one - and the pattern is quite regular. I worked through the pizza boxes and built up the pattern from the centre, matching colours where I could.
I wish that I'd got the colours to be a bit more true to life - it's brighter than it looks here!
Anyway, you can see that it is a quick to make design - alternate quarter square blocks and plain blocks give this pattern with lots of movement in it.
I like the effect - it's made it a reversible quilt!
It's been a few months since the last quilt finishes that I've had, apart from last weeks map quilt. I think that the 365 challenge has eaten up more of my time and sewing thoughts than I'd realised this year.
Still, if I want to complete the challenge I need to do some serious catching up now - I'm almost exactly two months behind at the moment. Not exactly a coincidence that the last block I made was on the day that the school holidays started! Time to start cutting and sewing little blocks again!
