Comfort Quilt Finish

       I love using scraps to “make fabric” and this lap size pattern is a great place to show off made-fabric pieces or a large print.  The pattern is “Baker’s Dozen” by Sherri B Driver and was a web bonus at McCalls Quilting for March/April 2013.  I simplified the frames around the made-fabric.

     I quilted Leah Day’s Echo Shortcut motif in the made-fabric areas. 
I stitched-in-the-ditch the frames and meandered the background. 
     This was an easy pattern and I plan to use it again to show off made-fabric pieces, maybe even for a queen size quilt.

Stay cool and enjoy time sewing or quilting.

I'm linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  


  1. This is wonderful! I love your made fabric--improv to the young ones I guess--and the set it off in frames is just great. Very creative expression. I've got to remember this for those strings.

  2. A great quilt someone will love. Glad to see scraps get used up into a top.

  3. Good job with the "made" fabric - sure better than the mess I've made. Cute "Supergirl" outfit. Fun to see the girls, learning sewing and stitching! (elaineadairpieces)

  4. Lovely quilt! That seems like the perfect pattern to use with made fabric. Your quilting really sets it off as well.
