I changed the pattern, of course, because somehow I never can quite make myself follow all of any quilt's directions. I made the quilt baby-sized, and instead of squares pieced from rectangles between the chevron rows I just added strips.
The blocks are made from 4 half square triangles of prints with white. There are 16 blocks in my quilt. Below you can see the very basic quilting.
I then cut them out. This didn't waste much batting at all--there was only a short strip left over to go in the scrap batting bag.

Use what you've got, I always say. And, if you can, make it yourself!
Have a lovely week, whatever you do.
