Not long after completing Vintage Mosaic in Blue, we needed to figure out a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. Quilting to the rescue! I had a relatively short period of time to complete the quilt, and with my husband’s help, I found a variety of reproduced vintage plaids and chose a shade of purple that worked well as a neutral within the quilt.
The finished size on this one was about 45″ square, so it makes for cozy throw.
I have this wonderful beginner’s book called “Quilting for People Who Don’t Have Time to Quilt”. It’s full of low-effort patterns (as far as you can be low-effort in the quilting world) that pack a big punch. This quilt is based on one of the patterns in that book.
The colorful patches are reproductions of vintage fabrics, which I simply adore. And I like how the blue becomes neutral when used like this.
I had scraps to use up from the previous project, so I looked for a suitable block to use them up. I found this one (for obvious reasons, its name is “Square in Square”) and busted out another table runner.
