This scrap quilt was a long time in the making. I started a couple years ago sewing 1.5"x2.5" crumbs of scraps together and just finally finished!
I love using up even the smallest scraps of fabric. This was started as a leader-ender project, but I can never leave them as leader-enders. They have to go on and become my main project!
Originally I was going to set these still on point, but in a zig zag arrangement instead of the pinwheels (like old gum wrapper chains). Then I saw the Bonnie Lass pattern and decided to go that direction instead. I decided to go with setting triangles cut from scraps rather than white and I really like how it looks.
I quilted the top with a stipple and bound it with black. Scrappy binding seemed like the natural choice, of course, but I wanted something more solid to give a definite edge to the craziness of the top. The size of this quilt was determined by how many of those little blocks I had made... it wound up at 64" square.
Of course this quilt is going to Covered in Love. I just took a big delivery up to the hospital yesterday bringing our total to 155 quilts! If you want to join in you can find details about program on the main page or find our block drive going on here.
Linking to Finish it Friday and Oh Scrap!
Listening to... Avicii. I secretly love EDM and techno :) Happy music for a happy quilt.
