While piecing each block, I attempted to have colors in surrounding blocks meet to create the squares of color seen in the quilt. I could have sewn front seams together, then hand closed each back seam by hand, but I just sewed all layers together, pressed seams open, and used a backing that covered the entire quilt. I then "stitched in the ditch" with my walking foot to secure all three layers. This is not a fancy quilt, just an easy way to make something colorful, use up scraps, and cover an electrical panel in my studio. I will probably make a few quilts this size and rotate them throughout the year. I'm just happy to have the electrical panel covered! I'm not sure.... but I'd bet that a man designed this building, because I don't know any woman who would put a panel in the middle of a room!
I'm looking forward to a productive sewing weekend. Have a good one.
