One patch Quilt

I have been moving along with my project of one stash quilt per week, in fact this week I will probably exceed it. 

My 13 year old niece has been visiting, and I offered to make a quilt with her, she was suprisingly excited,  and chose a simple graphic pattern from the free ones available on the artgallery fabric site.  She loved  diving into my stash and picking out some fabrics.  I got to teach her how to use a sewing machine, and she did most of the piecing herself.

Unfortunately I was slow in getting the quilting done, so I was still wrapping it up when her mother arrived to pick her up, so no picture of the finished quilt, just this of the work in progress.

I finished it with a white border, and verigated blue to green to yellow binding.

    That’s a pretty good looking quilt from a stash. Maybe I better start using up some of the accumulation I have. It looks pretty easy even for a beginner.

    • Thanks. I think I used around 20 different fabrics, mostly quarter yards. With scrappy quilts it seems like the more fabrics you have the better it all blends. The piecing was quite easy, the most difficult part was that the pattern was written for the artgallery fabrics, and I had to figure out how to switch that to my fabrics, since it is not a true one patch patch quilt, but has three different size rectangles.
      Let me know if you decide to make one, I’d love to see the results.
