Cotton Factory Block Swap Exhibit Quilt

By December 31, 2016October 26th, 2017blog

This quilt was quite a departure from my usual colours… but these were the colours chosen by #thealison for the Cotton Factory Block Swap #CFCBlockSwap in 2016.

I sent in 4 blocks and received 4 blocks back. Then realised that even though they may not be ‘my’ colours, they looked great together and @thefabrichusband niece would LOVE them!

So, I made a few more blocks to make it into a nice lap rug size and gifted it to her for her birthday in late December. She LOVED it!

I put my blocks together a little differently than the pattern… I decided no sashing and on point. Just to be different!

And I had a few part blocks left over, so pieced them into the backing 🙂

The backing fabric was grey shot cotton from Spotlight…. it is so soft, it has become my favourite backing!

This make was part of my #2016FAL with @finishalong
