Hot From the Dryer!

Hot from the dryer, a baby quilt made trying to use every last smidgen of fabric left over from the last quilt I posted about.  I think.  Too lazy to check back and be sure.    The little pinwheels and hst's are from the clipped off corners of snowball type blocks and I built churn dash blocks around them.  Piecing this was a little difficult for me because the hst's I started with weren't a uniform or commonly used size and I actually had to make some calculations.  With numbers and measurements and everything.  Very basic, simple math, yet a challenge for me.  

Here's kind of a close-up of the quilting.  I really over did it, but I was under the influence of Angela Walters' Craftsy class where she was drawing swirls and pebbles.  Swirls I enjoyed, pebbling, on this small of a scale, not much.  There is a whole lot of thread in this quilt which makes it not particularly soft and cuddly for a baby.   And all that pebbling made the unpebbled blocks a little poofier than I'd intended.  

And, here is the back.  Unused blocks, chunks and strips of left over fabric placed every which way!

I'm going to attemp to link up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for her "Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?" Friday post.

I really like the quilting. The unpebbled blocks don't look too poofy to me.
