Archive Tuesday - All Things Scraps

Val's Quilting Studio

I hope you are aware of Valerie's Tuesday Archives, but do hop over today.  She has a theme (alphabetically) each week and this week it is Scrap Quilts and Scrap Projects.

Since I am a scrap quilter, oh so many posts with scrap quilts.  I linked my little scrap doll tutorial, but you can pick it up on the tab, too.  For a quilt I thought I wouldn't go thru the archives, but show the newest finish (photoed just as a huge storm rolled in - just made it in the door).


This was my my April 'Let's Book It' project from Pat Speth's "Big Book of Nickel Quilts".  It didn't even put a dent in my scraps.


This is a big quilt and I handed it off to my long armer, Barbara Rua, to just do a large open meander.  Anything more would take away from the 'heritage' of this quilt pattern.


A little closer shot before the lightening and thunder scared the beegeebees out of me.  72" square, Quilter's Dream 100% cotton batt, unbleached muslin for backing, 5 different left over bindings complete this.  I LOVE this quilt - so me!!

If you are a scrap quilter or just starting to work your scraps, please go over and check out all the link ups - inpiration abounds.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Oh, I love that quilt! Though I was getting dizzy trying to puzzle out the basic block. (Two squares and a rectangle?)
    Since 'scrappy' is my middle name, I'm headed over to chase links. Thanks for the heads-up!

  3. I am a scrap quilter and I love this quilt. You did a great job and it is always a bonus to be able to use up left-over bindings. Be careful of the stormy weather.

  7. Isn't it amazing how a quilt this large just seems to generate more scraps, not make a dent in them, much less empty out a scrap tote! I do love this pattern, it would make a wonderful leader/ender project - is that how you got this one accomplished?

  8. Yes! This is beautiful.....love all the scrappy goodness you put into it. And I love using mixed binding strips....they show a little personality. you don't mention the block name, so shall we just call it Sharon's block?
