This quilt has been a work in progress for a long time as it was a way to use up my scrap triangles. I even save the little bits from joining binding together. (side note: why am I so frugal with fabric when I'm not with anything else?)
Anyway, slowly but surely my triangles built up into blocks like this.
Then I added more scrap strips around each block. Quilted each block separately, then used more white to sash them together and it turned into this...
I'm so pleased with it. I had no idea when I started the little blocks what it would turn out like but I love working without a plan.
The white sashing joins aren't perfect, in some places they are fairly wonky, but I don't care. The quilting was my first attempt at feathers and then in the edges I did a wonky waving echo pattern. Even when it went a bit out of line, who is going to notice?
The backing was also bits and pieces left over, but these were bigger pieces and I love the way it looks here as well.
The only thing that wasn't scrap was the white kona cotton which I think it needed. Scrappy background blocks I don't think would have worked.
