Shivaun Place Bonus Scrap Quilt

In 2020, I finally finished the Shivaun Place quilt that I'd been working on for a couple of years. The pattern by Sassafras Lane Designs is really clever in that it includes a second smaller quilt pattern to make using the trimmings. The half square triangles and quarter square triangles come together in the sweet pinwheel pattern seen above. Below is the original Shivaun Place:

A few of my trimmings must have disappeared in the process of making the original quilt, so I had to remake a couple of peach floral pinwheels, but luckily I still had enough fabric left over to fill in those gaps. I also added a border to make it a little larger. The peach was left from a bedsheet that I used as backing on another quilt. 

For the back, I used up some coordinating Rifle Paper Co. fabrics from my stash. Same for the binding - use it up! I did my trusty free-motion quilting design -- an allover meander with occasional loops -- on my domestic Juki.

I think I'll hold onto this one for a little while before deciding whether or not to donate it to Project Linus, the usual recipient of my smaller quilts.
