Her nursery brief was "navy, grey and white with a little accent of red." Now that I could manage! I opted to use my go-to tumbler quilt pattern because I thought it suited her style and is quite easy. All the fabric came from my stash (many even from my scraps) which felt good.
Here is Nautical:
|You can see that I opted for random navy and grey squares and a white border. The hint of red is in the binding which I think adds a nice little surprise pop of contrast.|
|I did something completely out of my comfort zone for the backing. I free-form pieced a log cabin type of block out of the scraps from the front, framed it in a red-on-red Pearl Bracelet and then did the rest in Kona White. I totally dig it.|
|This was so out of my comfort zone. I don't know if I would make these exact choices again but for spontaneous piecing with scraps I think it turned out pretty well.|
|There are some favourite fabrics in there and it was especially hard to cut into my April Rhodes Arizona print but I think it is the standout pattern in this quilt.|
