Flower Baby Quilt - Try and See

This scrappy baby quilt was a try and see how it works quilt. I pieced a bunch of scraps together and came up with this mix. It looks like I used 2 1/2 inch squares but actually I used pieced strips. The picture is deceiving. It looks like 2 1/2 inch squares but they’re not so that is why the corners don’t line up. I wanted to try out the pounce and stencil method so I incorporated solid white squares. I also had a ruler that I wanted to test out. The back was a 1 yard piece that I had on hand and it matched perfectly.

I used Pounce with a flower stencil on the solid white 5 inch squares just so I could test out the method. I could not remove the blue chalk so I washed the quilt and the chalk came out in the wash.

The colors in the animal print went great with the colors on the front.

I used a ruler to make the arches in the blue border. I filled it because I wasn’t happy with the plain arches. It is going to take a lot of practice for me to master the rulers.
