Scrap Attack


This is one of my entries for the Scrap Attack Challenge hosted by Stitched in Color. The pattern for the quilt was designed for the Bust Yo Scraps at Just a Bit Frayed. I used much smaller pieces - 4.5" snowballs and 2.5" setting squares using Kona Snow that was some strips trimmed from a previous quilt. I had to piece one of the final borders to have 'just enough'. The color bits are 1.5" squares and 1.5 x 2.5" bricks from the scrap bin. So many pieces of different projects.


Luckily this is a baby quilt - I used a left over piece of striped binding and had just a 2 inch bit trimmed. The backing is a trim from a larger quilts back and had to be pieced. Batt is two trims zig-zagged together. I used a simple STID with a lite blue CT Essential thread.
This little quilt will donated for the Hands2Help project.

My second entry is my Fat Quarter Star Quilt with photos and information found here.

Sewingly Yours,

  3. I love the way this turned out. I have boxes of scraps, and someday soon I need to sort them by type. For some reason batik doesn't look good with Civil War doesn't look good with modern doesn't look good with vintage, etc., etc. You get the picture.
