This time of year, I just love a hot bowl of veggie soup, don't you? In fact, that's what I'm working on for supper tonight. Do you cook your turkey bones like I do to make a yummy stock? When I recently finished up my latest "free quilt" using 'leaders and enders', it turned out so colorful, that I decided to name it Vegetable Soup.
Although there's not much to the simple 9-patch design, it's was a quick and easy quilt to make and a great way to use up some of my scraps. I always keep a box full of 2 in. and 2.5 in. squares on hand to use as my leaders and enders. In no time at all, I have the makings for a quilt out of leftovers....just like my turkey vegetable soup!
The colorful fabric squares were paired with some cream colored Kona that I had on hand....something a little different than the usual white or snow that I usually lean toward.
The quilting is a serpentine like wave stitch that my Bernina quickly turned out. The quilt is bound with a Moda 'Oh, My" large floral...more leftovers from another project!
This little lap size quilt will be given to a child living in an orphanage in Rwanda sometime soon. Hopefully, the colorful fabrics will be a fun way to cover his/her bed!
