I recently finished a quilt that has been in the works for oh...4 or 5 years maybe? It is an Irish Chain pattern I found in a book called Big Book of Scrap Quilts. The pattern is called Jenny's Flower Garden. I used all scraps from my stash including scraps from a civil war ball gown, a failed green linen dress project, a button up shirt, a pair of pajamas, a baby quilt and other random scraps from my stash! It feels so good to use up so many! Here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.
The whole thing is machine quilted in a diagonal pattern with PURPLE quilting thread! In each white square I hand quilted these pretty flowers. Honestly, I think the hand quilting was my favorite part of the process.
It is bound in scraps from my Civil War Ballgown!
And here is the back. A pieced together back with a bunch of pastel scraps and muslin from my stash!
I have to say I didn't enjoy making this quilt as much as I thought I would. There were just too many little corners that had to match up with each other. That is why it's so small. Originally I was going to make it at least a double size but I ran out of steam and ambition. That being said, I really love the finished quilt and I'm so glad that I stuck with it and finished it.
