I made this quilt several years ago. As I've mentioned before our oldest two kids are adopted. I made quilts as gifts for their birth parents when we brought our kids home. I should share those quilts with you sometime too.
Several years ago, my mom and step-dad adopted a girl they'd had as a student who'd been in the foster care system and needed a permanent family. I was already grown and out of the house, but made this quilt for her to commemorate her becoming part of our family.
The pieced blocks were done by cutting out a square of muslin. Then I sewed the strips of other fabric on, however they struck my fancy. Then I trimmed the strips to match the size of the muslin square. I liked the unplanned nature of it...as well as the fact that it still had a certain amount of order with the plain blocks in between.
I put lots of blue in throughout the quilt, but each pieced block had a second color scheme...orange, pink, purple, etc... There are two blocks of each color scheme. Then I used those fabrics to make the binding as well.
I don't have pictures for a tutorial for it, but if you have questions about specifics, feel free to send me an email.
Please show my sponsors some love...
