First, let me apologize for photo quality. I dropped my DSLR the other day and jammed the lens. So until I can get it fixed, I’m stuck using my cell phone for all my photos. It’s an iphone, so they aren’t horrible – they just aren’t up to my usual standard.
Now… onto business…
Garden Trellis is complete! Thanks to said cell phone, you can’t see that I quilted in individual flower in each one of those white blocks
Here’s a better shot. It was my first attempt using stencils and it didn’t go too badly. I do need to get better at centering the stencil, but for a first attempt, I’m happy.
The finished quilt is 50″ x 66″. A nice-sized lap quilt, and made almost entirely of scraps. (I did have to buy some white fabric, though that doesn’t really count). Building all those nine patches was a great leader/ender project, and it’s a pattern I’ll definitely do again. There’s just so many ways you can change it up!
And my favourite part…. that backing! A super amazing clearance bin find. The binding was leftover from the back of my bear paw quilt. I’ve almost used all of it, but not quite!
