"Jump in the Pool" Quilt
This is a quilt I started a long time ago. Years and years.
It started when someone gave me a stack of 3-inch squares of some really
UGLY fabrics. Just the kind of leftovers-nobody-wants-it fabric that
appeals to me.
I kept adding to it as I came across reject scraps.
Once I added some pieced borders of blue Kaffe fabrics, the quilt reminded me of a bunch of colorful kids in a swimming pool. Hence the quilt's name, Jump in the Pool.
The back is pieced red and yellow prints that I had on hand. Once Terry quilted it for me on her long arm, I bound it with another saturated blue from Kaffe.
