While I forgot to post in time for the February link up, I am proud to say that I did achieve my goal of a finished quilt top!
I used this block tutorial, and added some 1" sashing since I mis-cut my triangles, and felt they needed some extra spacing. I found that the sashing helped to keep the quilt top square too, since the background leaves the edges of the blocks cut on the bias and a tendency to stretch.
I added a border of blue, since the matching quilt will also have a border, and I wanted to tie the two quilts together a bit, since they are both from different patterns. The only fabric I purchased for this one, was the white background and blue border. I am trying to make a dent in my scrap bin, but it didn't dent it quite as much as I had hoped, so there are definitely more scrap quilts on the cards for me this year!
My March goal will be to make a pieced backing (also from scraps), quilt and bind this quilt. I am still not sure on the binding - the calmer blue/red stripe? Or the bright primaries?
As a stretch goal, I hope to finish the top for the matching quilt, which has sat as a pile of blocks for quite a while!
Linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes!
