Using up Fabric

This quilt was made with a pattern called Kwik Shifted Blocks by Two Kwik Quilters. The pattern showcases large prints but I planned on using it as a way to get rid of some leftover fabrics from another quilt project. I have to admit, I cut the blocks exactly as stated and usually I'm pretty consistent with my measurements and sewing abilities but this quilt top did not measure up. I ended up cutting up some of the blocks in order to make them fit. So even though I liked the pattern, I won't be using it again.

The pattern called for more varieties of prints to be used but I was so determined to use up what I have so there's not a lot of variety in the blocks. I accomplished what I set out to do and I don't think it hurt the final result.

I made an effort to only use charity fabric to make this 3-yard quilt called Easy Street. The focus print has some fun colors so I picked out some blue and lavender coordinating fabrics. These 3-yard quilt patterns from Fabric Cafe go together so easy that I can finish a top in just an afternoon. 

I thought it would be fun to use a butterfly pantograph for the quilting.

The backing fabric is from the Moda Grunge line. I can't tell you how much I love Grunge. It's so versatile and it works with most of my projects. I'm happy to have another finished quilt to turn in at this month's Quilts for Kids meeting. I am determined to use up all the donated fabric that I have.
