Well, it's Friday again - the first one of 2012! I'm excited to see what everyone's been working on - whether it's cleaning up your sewing space, finishing up old UFOs, or starting some new-FOs!
The quilt I want to share is one I made as a commission for a friend's daughter. The mom and daughter chose the fabrics for a sudoku quilt - then mom decided she wanted the quilt to be twin sized. After much figuring on graph paper, I came up with a way to make the sudoku pattern work in a twin size.....
With the addition of extra borders, and a piano key border, I got it up to twin size. The piano key border was fun - I took all the leftover fabrics from the sudoku blocks, cut them into 2" strips, sewed them together in one long strip, and basically did a 1600 quilt top with them - then cut it into the strips for the piano key borders. It was a fast and easy way to create the look, and use up all the scraps!
I love the quilting, too - I was debating what color to use, black or white - then the mom suggested lime green - brilliant! It looks so nice on all the fabrics....
And I used the last few pieces of the 1600 quilt top to enhance the pieced back. I love using up scraps!!
So that's my whoop whoop for the week (although I finished it before Christmas!) Now it's your turn - what have you been working on this week? Link up and share - you've got until Saturday night to join in! Be sure and check out your fellow linkers, too - it's a great way to get inspiration!!
