I started this quilt last year as a plaything. I had all these fat quarters of Waverly fabrics in pinks and grays that i wanted to use up. Plus I wanted a large quilt to work on the long arm machine with for practice using pantographs.
I created a pattern using string quilting techniques for the center. Then I let the quilt go wild. I surrounded the center block with wonky squares that were all off kilter. It was as if the quilt’s structure was decomposing from the inside out. Then for the final outside I simple used blocks in a checkerboard edging to give it some formal structure. I added white borders and sashing for spacing and definition.
This quilt ended up being bought as a gift for a newly expecting first time young mother. I hope it gives her and her baby hours of comfort pleasure!
