I chose the pattern Mod Circuitry. I cut a 6 1/2" block and four strips. This was the best pattern for a 10" piece of fabric, with no waste.
My niece Ami, has a large family, so I'm able to make many quilts for her.
Rick's pick. Again I didn't use the white or cream layer cake pieces, I used Luci's Pearl Essence white fabric for the background and the same cracked grey for the back.
This quilt was made from all the left over scraps. I used the white, cream, left over black and grey, plus black and grey, Michael Miller's Fairy Frost. I purchased the Fairy Frost fabrics from Crystal's in Grand Marais. MN about 10 years ago, I still have some left. Maria Bell suggested I use solid yellow for the background, and more grey for the back. I gave this one to Jennifer, Ami & Rick's daughter. This is one way I can pay them back for all they do for me.
Nicole posts "quilts for mom" on my Pinterest site. I saw the pattern Ombre Gems by Emily Dennis, "Quilt Love" Blog. I ordered the paper pattern. Shortly after I got the pattern in the mail, Emily post a 10 week Ombre Gem quilt along. Right now we are on week eight. I saw another pattern that would work well with my 2 1/2" strips.
