Wanta Fanta :: DGS Haven circle

June was my month for my Do.Good Stitches circle and I had my circle mates make these Wanta Fanta blocks using scrappy blues and lights. It turned out so neat!

To quilt it I used my Curvit ruler to outline each blue area in a gray thread and filled in with ribbon candy. Then I went back with white thread and outlined the light areas and filled in with various sized swirls and pebbles. Quilting it took 4.5 hours.

I love it!

I added a scrappy 2.5 inch square border around the edge for several reasons. 
A) to make it a little bit bigger. 
B) To use up some of my overflowing blue scrap bin. 
C) to help frame the quilt

Blue polka dot binding. (I usually cut binding at 2.5 inches, but realized if if I cut at 2.25, I would have just barely enough!)

Finished size is 72 by 57 inches.  Thanks Haven circle once again for coming through with the blocks for this quilt. Together, we make amazing quilts! This quilt has been sent to Redeemed Ministries in Round Rock, Texas.

Wanta Fanta is a great quilt, thanks for sharing the sources of the pattern! I really enjoyed seeing Norene's Log Cabin, too and the lovely quilting that you did on it, thanks!
