I know a lot of people will get really intracit with their mini quilts, but I knew I would not. I decided last month that I would finish one unfinished project before starting a new. I also decided I was going too try and use as much of my fabric stash as I could without buying more. My stash has really grown, I guess as many quilters have. So I knew with this challenge I could make a few quilted table toppers and get them out of my projects to be done basket!!
I also challenged myself too finish 4 this month!! One for each week. I am excited to use these also as FMQ practice pieces!!
The first one is made out of the leftover triangles from a large strip quilt I made a while back. I matched each camo triangle up with a colored triangle. I then used the easy angle ruler to square them up into 3 inch squares. I then laid the pieces out until I found a pattern to sew together.
I decided on a chevron or zigzag pattern. Each zigzag is a different color. With 4 short rows. I then added a 2 inch camo boarder and binded it with black material. I quilted it doing a continuous swirl pattern. Finished it is 13x23. It is made completely out of scraps even the backing which I used the leftover squares to make a strip down the center of the quilt.
I am redoing my sons room and plan to use this as a runner for his dresser!!
