I had fat quarters of this focus fabric with two backgrounds – the other one was light. I don't know why I was so called to this print that I had to make two blankets out of it. Of course, since the last one didn't turn out and I had to chuck it, maybe that's part of the reason...The quilting made the whole blanket crooked and there was no salvaging it, unfortunately. Plus, I had this piece to try again. I think it's very cheery, and it's quite small -- 30" x 30", so it will work well for an infant in an NICU.
This was my adventure in gathering. I saw this technique somewhere and thought it looked so delicate and pretty. The fabric is linen, and the color was perfect, but gathering is a lot more work than I thought. I can safely say that this is out of my system. This fabric was donated to us, and I loved the gentle colors. I used a dark teal Minky on the back. I feel done with this print and these colors for now. Time for a change of pace!

How did I come up with this name for my blog?
I will never be recruited into the Quilting Police – I am not a perfectionist when it comes to quilting. I prefer my quilts done (not that I don't have plenty that are only partly done and many many more in the dream stages). I also like to get a deal on fabric, and I like to use up my fabric efficiently. I created this blog to show the method of my madness...
