Aren't these fabrics fabulous? Chosen by my SiL and niece for a specific quilt pattern that my niece has chosen for her 'Uni Quilt'.
It hardly seems enough fabric to make a complete quilt top, does it?
The pattern, by Karen Lewis of Blue Berry Park, was published in Love Patchwork and Quilting in October 2014. I've been wanting to make it since I first saw it! I'm excited that I'm finally doing so.
Happy sewing and crafting, everyone!

This is a 44" lovely, made from my 2" strips and squares, the surprise additional size that I cut when I was tackling my scraps.
I put the strips together 'lasagne quilt' style, stopping once I'd got to a size that I thought I could cut up usefully.
I thought that adding the sashing and border to bring the size up a little was a good plan, and rotating alternate blocks seems to work well too.
I shall pass all three of these scrap quilts on to Project Linus at my quilt group next week.
Patsy Thompson DVD (thank you Avril!) I decided to quilt with a loop de loop vine. My leaves need some work on consistency, but its a good start point for me!
You can see here the leaves amongst the loops on the back of it here.
I'm off to fondle some fabric and perhaps even iron and cut it - planning and starting a new project is always fun, isn't it?
