and now for something completely different..









                    
                             


 so i made a quilt!
..
dunno am i allowed to call it a quilt, though..
cause it was way too easy to make,
and design is too simple..
so, all those real quilters out there
might be offended 
that i call this a quilt
..
it was rather fun little project
makes a nice gift
and it reduced my pile of fabric scraps
(i have insane amount of scraps
most of them being too small for any real size project
and then again - too big to go to the trash)
..
i always thought quilting is not really my thing
cause patience is not my virtue 
but i enjoyed this project so much
that i think i'm going to make many more quilts
maybe even an elaborated one, who knows
..
only thing i really hated
was cutting the triangles out..
it just took too much time
like - a four set tennis match!
(so, before i start my next quilt
getting cutting mat and rotary cutter
would probably be a great idea)
..
quilt top is interfaced
and for the back of the quilt 
i used orange quilted cotton
(yup, i cheated
cause batting was nowhere to be found
and that cotton was already in my stash
and was soft and orange and.. well - pre-quilted
what made it perfect for this project)
..
still feeling amazed
how much i enjoyed making this..
loved drawing different designs
 choosing fabrics and arranging them
and then creating this big colorful puzzle
.. 
took me one entire football game to finish 
(a long one though, spain and italy were playing
semi-finals of confederations cup
in case you're interested)
add that tennis match to that time
plus an hour i spend
drawing different designs
and digging trough my fabric scraps
to find the right colors
..
oh, and
don't let that wonky first pic fool ya
quilt is actually rectangular :)

  7. Love it! So cool to see where the fabric came from. I've been saving scraps for years to one day make a color wheel quilt. This may just inspire me to get to it!

  10. That is a fantastic little quilt! I have a basket full of fabric scraps reserved for a project like this. One day... haha!
    I think you should definitely call it a quilt though. It is quilted after all?! :)
