Quiltus Interruptus

Two other larger quilts were put on hold to make a quick mini.  First I saw this one, then that one, and then I dove headfirst into my scrap pile (don't worry, it's a pretty big pile, so I didn't hurt myself), and a marathon of cutting, basting, stitching and binding ensued.
I tried really hard not to use my ruler, so there would be some wonkiness. The quilting lines were not marked either, I just kind of eyeballed it. 
This is going into my "gift" basket.  A lot of the things I make are gifted throughout the year.  When a birthday or Christmas comes up, I search the basket for a present before I run out to buy something. 
So very satisfying.

Dark gray fabric: Kona (don't know the color, charcoal?)
Backing: Alexander Henry "Market Stalls", bought at Joann's
Finished size: 25x25 inches


  1. I'd sure love to dive head first into your gift basket!!!
    I love this one!

  2. Love it! I love all of the Kona cottons! What a great idea about the gift basket! you are very wise!!

  3. I'm having a little giggle at the vision of you diving into your scrap pile and popping back up triumphantly with just the perfect fabrics! Love your quilt - and particularly the wonkiness, that's what makes it unique and fun.
    Have a happy weekend,

  4. That is a fabulous quilt, hope you have a helmet on when you go diving into your fabric stash, I don't want you to get hurt.

  5. This is lovely and fun. I have a gift drawer too where I put things throughout the year ready for birthdays and Christmas.

  6. Ahhh, this one is so lovely. The bright florals against the charcoal gray look just wonderful. Beautiful job, as always! :)

  7. I love it!
    So creative, a great change from a quilt with the off set piece.
