Old Quilt, New Quilt

I made this quilt at least five years ago. It is approximately the size of a twin bed. I am not much of a quilter, so this the largest quilt that I have made.

I recently completed this quilt, made of leftover Amy Butler fabrics.

It is a lap quilt, so it is pretty small. It was a great way to use up scrap materials that have been in my stash for quite awhile.

I didn't use a pattern for this quilt. I made blocks by sewing small squares and strips together and then I sewed the large blocks together to make the quilt front. After attaching the the back and the edging, I hand quilted the layers together. It took some extra time to do the hand quilting, but I really love the hand done effect.
