“Contained Chaos” designed by Melissa Peda caught my eye. You can find design # 889 on page 70. Melissa’s block is composed of various pink print scraps. I made my blocks with shades of blue and purple.
What a fun way to deplete my scrap bin! I framed each of my four 12″ blocks with a magenta tone-on-tone.
A wide pieced sashing used more scrappy strips. I had just enough squares and circles print for the outer border (Shelburne Falls line designed by Denyse Schmidt). This could be a baby quilt or I could enter it in my guild’s competition for a “quilt containing no red to be given to a veteran.”
