Since I can't work on new sewing projects right now, it's a good time to take a look at one of my UFOs. This is the top that was peeking beneath the red and white Sunrise, Sunset project.
Several years ago, my mom made a baby quilt and had a few scraps left over. I added a few of my own scraps and pieced them all together. The design inspiration came from one of the fabrics that looked like a montage of baby jungle animals.
I decided to go with that montage (or collage) effect by making a 4-patch within a 4-patch block.
I rotated these blocks different ways and set them with regular 4-patch blocks and two plain blocks of the jungle fabric (I wanted three but didn't have enough fabric for three). Here's an Electric Quilt representation of the quilt top.
I used 2.5-inch, 4.5-inch, and 8.5-inch squares (cutting measurements). The yellow border was cut 1.5 inches wide and the blue border was cut 3 inches wide. It worked up quickly and was a great way to use scraps that had a theme. I plan to try this design out again next month to use up some Christmas fabric stash.
