It's about 60 x 75 inches and will make a nice-sized lap quilt.
I hung it in front of the sliding door this morning for a stained glass effect.
You get the idea.
One more, though. :)
What makes me happy about this quilt—well, there are lot of things, but one of them—is that I used some interesting pieces of fabric from stash. I didn't feel like I had enough variety of light fabrics on hand, and I was close to grabbing the car keys and making a dash to the fabric store on one or two occasions, but ultimately my stubbornness about using only stash and making it work won out.
For instance, here you can see a yellow and white background fabric that is actually little yellow dress forms. That is a vintage feed sack fabric. I literally had to remove the chain stitching along the side of the sack to open it up before pressing and cutting into it (I'd soaked and washed it a while back after I first brought it home). I'm guessing it's from the 1940s or '50s.
The crossed Native American drumsticks print was a vintage cotton curtain I found at a flea market about five years ago. Then there is a blue and yellow men's shirt fabric among the light fabrics. Both the sun/moon print and the Kelly green are thrift store finds. I also used the reverse side of a yellowish-tan fabric as one of the lights, because it was a more compatible shade of ivory versus the right side of the fabric.
I'm so glad my daughter helped me see that putting the pieces together by color could work nicely. I didn't follow her idea to the letter, but it got me thinking along that line instead of the random way I had intended to go with the piecing.
This is a free Bonnie Hunter pattern, Scrappy Mountain Majesties, which you can find at Quiltville HERE.
