Here's my version of Sujata Shah's wonderful pattern,
It's a joy to make, and a great way to use scraps.
The color scheme started with this home decorator fabric.
A friend and I took on the challenge to make a quilt with it.
I thought I might use it as the border.
In the end, both the fabric and the quilt shouted, "No!"
I quilted it with wool batting, and stitched in the ditch along the outside edge of each block.
Then I added perle cotton 8 details.
Keeping with the scrappy theme, the back is a hodgepodge of large scraps.
You can purchase the pattern at Sujata's etsy shop here.
Meanwhile, I was fooling around with some "orphan" blocks.
And the challenge fabric found it's home!
