Community Quilt #2 for 2011

MBQG Community Quilt #2 2011 (2)

This quilt should look rather familiar.  I won these strips of fabric at the guild Christmas party last year.  I like them, but they're not my style so much.  I decided to use them for a community quilt a long time ago and just got around to it.  First I sewed up all the strips.  They were the width of the fabric- about 42", but then I cut off two 5 inch wide strips to make Daria's little quilt.  The rest were simply backed and quilted to make a nice sized baby quilt (approximately 32 x 42 inches).

I hunted around in the stash for a suitable backing and found this great stripe that I had gotten on clearance. I added a bit of Kaffe Fassett Aboriginal Dots for the filler and the binding.  Voila!  A quick quilt that will warm a new local baby some day soon.  The guild retreat starts tomorrow, so things will be quiet here for a few days. I'll come back with photos and news of new quilts and all the fun!
