Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2015 - Scrappy Quilt


AmysCreativeSide.com


With Market, comes time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by the lovely AMY.  A virtual quilt show for us all to enjoy as well as show off a bit. My entry for Scrappy Quilt..........


I do a lot of scrap quilts, but wanted to chose one for this Festival that truly represents me as a quilter.  Tiny scraps collected/donated from many quilters and projects turned into a mini.  This is 'Cascadia' and a QAL with Lori of Humble Quilts in Nov/Dec 2014.


 

The scrap barrel of 1.5" squares and tidbits - all that goodness to play with for this project.


Piecing rows in twosies and foursies - just no real care in what goes where.  Even some HSTs got mixed in.



Working rows set on point - lots of starch to keep those little pieces from going 'a-wonk'.  Trimmings of muslin from quilt backs used up for those setting triangles.


 

The backing was a scrap off the shelf, batting was a trim off, and the binding was pulled from the scrap binding drawer.  A totally scrap project.

  1. Beautiful. On my bucket list are a few people I would like to eventually meet (mostly quilters). One of them is you. You are a girl after my own heart. I quilt like you do, using every piece I have and mostly making scrappy quilts. I do batting the same has you. Even binding, I make. I love your quilt...it definitely says who you are. great job!

  12. What a fun little quilt. It inspires me to do a true scrappy. I'm quilting with scraps all the time, but I love these colorful scrappys. Maybe it's time to pull down a different book from the bookshelf for more ideas.
