I started my project with several blue and white fabrics and a white fabric. I cut strips from the blues and squares from the white.
Then I cut them into 4 equal parts.
Then I laid them out to create patterns. This pattern reminded me of the gum wrapper chains and I loved it!
I lined up my blocks like this.
I quilted with a wiggle line along the chain on the blue fabric.
I added wiggle lines to the borders.
The quilted table topper looks great with my blue and white plates.
And it looks perfect on my dinning room table.
I added my Quilted Gum Wrapper Chains to the flicker site for Project Quilting. Click on the link and you can see all the quilts that took the challenge this week for Project Quilting.
Kim posted about the 53 entry quilts also - click here.
I found a link to an origami blog that has a tutorial on how to make the Bubble Gum Wrapper Chain.
It was another fun challenge! Thanks Kim!
Enjoy your day!
Update: I started with a 3 inch square of white fabric and my strips were 2 inches wide. That way the squares all end up being the same size. The finished white center square measures one inch and the finished side strips measure 1 inch and 2 inches. The block measures 2 inches square.
