As you know, the Thanksgiving Provo DI run proved to be very fruitful - in both trim and sewing patterns. However, I also scavenged 3 quilts worth of quilt scraps.
After Christmas, I wanted a simple, methodical sewing project, so I decided to make a quilt from these odd shaped DI scraps. I had bought a $1 bag of variously printed canvas trapezoid-shaped scraps and knew the only thing to do with them was patchwork quilting. The scraps fell into two main color groups which I would describe as "neon 70's floral" and "old-timey general store." See?
I trimmed the trapezoid shapes into rectangles,
It's small, thick (has 3 layers of DI batting), and durable from both the canvas and denim backing. It's only about 3' X 3' square, so I decided to use it someday as a baby play mat - type of thing so I can lay the little darling on it and not have to worry about my dirty floors :)
Plus it might be good at our notoriously damp parks.
