More Lovely Scrappy Finishes!

I am continuing to see more quilt finishes inspired by my Scrap-A-Palooza scrap series and I thought I would share them with you.  All of these quilts were influenced by January's Horizontal Bar quilt.





This fun one was made by a friend from a bunch of scraps left over from a couple of recently finished quilts. 

The light colored sashing really sets off the playful colors in the scraps.




 It was quilted in a pattern she has dubbed "Snail Trails". 


The bright red thread added even more character!




At first glance, this one appears to have random scraps but looking closely, every fabric has black in it.

This is a perfect example of the "Naming your quilt".  I think this really helps to create a successful scrap quilt.










I had the pleasure of quilting this one and I found myself spending way too much time looking at all the fun fabrics.











And this one I have shared before but I just finished quilting it up for a friend.  It too was made from leftover scraps from a previous project. 

I love the variation in the bar widths. 











A friend from Portland stopped by to share her quilt top with me.  This one was made with donated fabrics and will be passed on to a charity when it is finished.

It will definitely bring a smile to someone's face!












And finally, I wanted to share Joanie's Valentine's quilt.  I thought it was brilliant how she lined up her colors in vertical columns.    You can read more about this lovely quilt on her blog here.







I thank all of you who are following along with the series and I love to see what each of you create.  As more quilts get finished, I will be sure and share them.  I truly enjoy seeing all the different variations and having others see there is beauty hidden away in those scrap bins!

To see all the quilts in the series, you can also check out the Scrap-A-Palooza Quilt Gallery.

Very nice. I especially like the teal color in number 3 and those snail trails are great! I don't like my quilts too densely quilted and those look just perfect. Also spirals - Yay!

What a nice surprise to see my quilt shown on your blog! The others are all so wonderful! Lots of creativity in the mix from fabric selections, colors, quilting patterns and variation in designs. I like how the bars were pieced in your friend's aqua quilt. Love the snail trails quilting!

I loved reading about each quilt! They are all so great, and look completely different even though the pattern is almost the same! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for linking up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
