It was inspired by my overflowing scrap bin and my longing to make another kids quilt.
I began by finding all the boy or gender neutral novelty and brightly coloured strips that were at least 1" wide and more than 6" long (I'm sorry to say this didn't even make a small dint in my scrap bin lol). I cut each piece into 6" long rectangles of varying widths. I then started chain piecing them into long rows. I used the blue dotty fabric to give the quilt some uniformity and a place for the eye to rest. This way the varied strips became a real feature. I then quilted it with a loop de loop pattern.
I am linking up with My Quilt Infactuation, Sew Fresh Quilts and Free Motion Mavericks at Lizzie Lenard Vintage Sewing, Pink Doxies Pet Project Show and Whoop Whoop Fridays at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Would you like me to do a tutorial on this? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time
Yours in stitches
