I’ve been working on the Fallscape quilt. I have it all pieced, now just waiting to get it quilted.
This is a closer view of the fabrics.
I’m doing it as a pattern, and I decided I wanted to do a lap size, too. I played around in EQ, checking to see what fabrics I’ve used in the past. At the Creamery I knew we still had some of one outdoorsy line featuring Minnesota, and came up with a fabric layout I liked. I determined how much I would need.
When I worked on Saturday, the first thing I did was check out my fabric. There was nothing left of the larger scale prints, only a couple of fat quarters of two. I picked out one of each, one with the state centered, the other with a loon almost centered. There was plenty of striped fabric, which I will use as a mitered border.
Yesterday I dug through my scraps. I already had the lady slipper fabric, left over from something else. The same with the other wild life. I dug some more and found some leaves. I also used what was left from trimming down the two fat quarters.
I almost had enough of the black, but not quite—I need another 3” for the center section. Tomorrow I’ll go get another eighth yard, and then I can finish. I started to cut the border fabric, then decided to work on the pattern.
Other than the two fat quarters, frame fabric and border, this is a completely scrappy quilt. It’s so nice to use up some of the fabric I love!
