When Lissa first asked me to make a quilt for her Oh, Scrap! book over a year ago, she asked if I could come up with an alternate colorway of her fun Courthouse Steps design. I looked through my scrap stash (yes, its getting so large I am considering it stash now :) and immediately knew I wanted to make Lissa's blocks in beautiful blues and greens as those were the drawers that were overflowing. I just love seeing this combination of cool colors and after I had it all put together, I realized that my scrap stash is pretty bright and happy ;) Which is just perfect for me ;)
Kismet is made with 1 1/2" width strips that finish at 1". Talk about scrappy goodness!!! I love scrap quilts and scrap quilts made of tiny pieces, amazing!!! Sure, it took a little while to cut them all out, but totally worth it :) And what a great way to combine so many bits of pieces of other quilts into one quilt. I love that scrappy quilts also make wonderful memory quilts ;)
When it came time to quilt it I decided on simply wavy horizontal lines. I figured with all of that scrappy goodness, I wanted to keep it simple in the quilting ;) And I love how nice and soft it keeps the quilt ;)
Thanks for stopping in today and sharing this long awaited finish with me!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend :)
