About two weeks ago, a festival was held a few hundred meters away from our house. I checked the local newspaper, and found out when Chris Cornell was going on stage. Then I sat down by my cutting mat and sewing machine, opened the window and started making this tiny, red quilt while listening to The Master of Grunge (who is still rather good looking, close to 45)
I had already cut tiny scraps into 1,5" squares, and started sewing 4 of them together, forming a new square. Then I cut it again to make it even smaller. They're not even an inch now!
The whole quilt is about the same size as a LP-cover, or 30 cm. Perfect for a christmas nightstand!
I have fallen completely in love with the swirly quilting, I've used it two times in a row now. It's so much fun, and I love the look of it. I think it really adds a new layer to a simple quilt like this one.
I'm going to make another quilt in the same colors, but not the same pattern. After all, I still have hundreds of 1,5" squares in red and pink I need to use..
I might add that even if this is a christmas quilt, I haven't used any christmas fabrics. None of that typical Santa/gold/dark green/mistletoe stuff.
