Color on White Quilts (142 and 143)

A while back, I purchased a LOT of color on white fabrics.  I actually felt a little overwhelmed by how much I had.  Some of the fabrics were used in my “Love” quilt, but it only made a dent in the stash pile.  I am not a stash type of person.  So I decided to do some damage and lop off a lot of fabric.  This resulted in these muted, yet fun “color on white” quilts.

Yes, these are two different quilts.  I used minky for the back, incorporating two nieces favorite colors.

I do add batting to my minky quilts, mostly because I like how the batting supports the otherwise “slinky minky.”  I sewed quilt lines about 1/2 inch away from the seam lines, which gives a nice even cross-hatch design to the minky on the back.

Now my “color on white” fabrics are almost a heaping pile of scraps, which actually makes me feel more comfortable.  I don’t know what it is about scraps, but I love them!   Thanks for stopping by!  These quilts are about 68 inches by 89 inches, after washing, and they’ll be on their way to a Midwestern state soon, where I hope they will be used and abused!
