I've been busy working on a few things around here lately. Trying to keep myself busy creating lovely things, all the while, trying to get this little business of mine to grow. It's harder than you'd think. Anyways. I had purchased a layer cake that 'I HAD TO HAVE' earlier this year. Didn't have a project in mind, just loved the colors. I thought I'd find a quilt to work on while things were slow, but never found a pattern that fit it or that I really likes. Until I happened across this one in my obsessive, compulsive quilt pattern searches. (You can check out my Pinterest board for how many quilts I have fallen in love with.)
This pattern is from Cloud 9 Fabrics. It is a free design by Michelle Engel Bencsko called Scattered Petals Quilt. This was a very easy project to follow. Although I did modify it - you know because I can never leave anything alone. I changed it up to use the layer cake I had available.
What I did:
Cut each 10" square from the print layer cake into 4 - 5" squares.
I used about 14 - 10" squares from another layer cake in plain grey for the accent squares. I cut each of the plain color into 25 - 2" squares.
Then I followed the rest of the well written directions for assembly.
One layer cake will have enough to yield two baby quilts with a few blocks left over. I used 80 blocks per quilt to give a 37" x 46" quilt. Perfect for a baby/crib quilt. You could easily turn this into a twin sized quilt by adding a few borders to make it the right size.
As for finishing, I machine quilted using a diagonal pattern.
I am offering this quilt in my AddyLou Creates etsy shop. The second one will be coming as soon as I find some time to get it sewn together.
I am just in love with the colors on this. And how quickly it all came together.
