I made this quilt when the Denise Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy came out. Broadbents, a local quilt shop, asked me to come up with a pattern to showcase the fabric. I wanted to make a simple block to really display the fabric and color variations but also have a bit of scrap look to it.
Since this line of fabric isn't all from the same color palate it already looked kind of scrappy and flea markety so I thought the different lengths of scraps sewn in a strip and placed inside the cheddar border would make the quilt look more random and more like it could have been a vintage quilt bought at a flea market somewhere. I liked the little bows the white made when blocks met, too. It was quilted by Wren Woodland and she quilts many of my larger quilts.
