I needed a black background for a little quilt and being smack down in the middle of a scrappy love fest I wanted to piece one. I had a few black scraps in the box in which I never seem to make a dent even with the Intuition Quilt in progress.
Instead of just piecing the scraps together I thought of Victoria’s post and cut the scraps this way and that so I had lots of angles to play with. I laid the pieces out so that the different fabrics were sort of evenly distributed and started piecing them together, straightening up edges as needed.
I’ve got to admit I lost track at some point and had no idea where I came from or where I was headed, but I got all the pieces together and it’s big enough. It sure took a lot more time than anticipated, but was a fun exercise and the background will be much more interesting than just a few rectangles or strips pieced together.
Thank you for the inspiration, Victoria!
Love it so much!
It looks fabulous doesn't it! woohoo! good job! that's the way to do it! the more you do the faster they go...
I thought the post was going to be in Black and white when I saw the first picture!
Your new fabric really makes a great statement, it says Fun.
Love the 'constellations'!
This is so much fun! What a fun way to create a backing for a quilt. I was wondering how to back an intuition quilt and didn't just want a plain piece of fabric. Very cool.
How fun!! What a great idea!
Fantastic. I love that new fabric that you have created.
