I've never really been one for holding onto stuff for a long time and I don't get emotionally attached to my possessions on the whole. When it comes to fabric however, I seem to have a hard time getting rid of even the minutest of leftovers. So a scrap quilt has been on my list for a while. At first I had a go at some blocks for a string quilt using paper piecing, but it looked too busy for my taste. I'm not a minimalist by any means but I am drawn to clean white space in quilts. Even if it is for a baby.
I finally settled on this pattern - inspired by Film in the Fridge's Flying Farfalle quilt, (love that name) making my "bowties" a little more obvious by matching the fabric.
It's all pieced but now I'm having a quilting quandry. Ashley quilted hers using diagonal lines,framing the bowties beautifully, but it turns out mine are a bit too large to do this. So now I can't decide how to quilt it...apart from the safe but possibly slightly dull option of in the ditch.
