I love free patterns and the internet is a great resource for finding them. At the P&B textiles website (pbtex.com) I found this Pop Parade 2 quilt pattern. I like how the squares pop out at you:) I have so much left over fabric from all my previous projects I thought this could be kind of a scrap quilt. Most of the scraps are from my flower quilt I made my daughter.
The pattern is for a 54" square but I added a few rows and borders to make it a twin. I changed the pattern a bit adding my left over flower blocks. Here's another one of my beautiful drawings so I had something to go by.... scribble marks are from my daughter :)
I had to cut down the flowers because they were 11" squares and I needed them to be 8" squares.
This was actually a lot of work because I had to seam rip them apart, trim them down and then reassemble them.
After doing so many wonky quilts that don't have straight lines it was a nice break to work with plain old squares. The quilt went together fairly fast. The popped out squares are actually appliqued on.
I was proud of myself for not buying any new fabric. Although I'll probably have to buy some sort of backing fabric. Can't wait to go top stitch it.
