Kumari Holiday "Fresh" Lap Quilt

When I made my "Swoon" quilt there were a lot off off-cuts from the half-square triangles that were large enough to make into usable blocks.  My first thought was to make a cushion for the bed but I had enough pieces to make 6 "Fresh" blocks (at half of the original size) and plenty of left-over fabrics to use for more blocks, the borders and binding.

"Fresh" is from Camille Roskelley's "Simply Retro" book.

I wanted to try out the other side of the Scallops, Waves and Vines ruler and it worked out so well with this wide border.

For the quilting, I asked Karen to try out a design she hasn't used before.  She chose "August Rain" and it looks wonderful with these fabrics.

Using up a left-over larger piece in the backing.

It always feels so good to make an unexpected/unplanned quilt and to make a sweet quilt from fabrics that were such a lovely gift, is extra special.
