I am still marching on, trying to sew up my ever growing scrap bins. This has been a really busy week but I still found time to get the Scrap-A-Palooza quilt on my longarm machine and get it quilted up.
To refresh your memory on how this quilt progressed:
The quilt started out with a quick sort to pull out just turquoise and lime green scraps. Somehow, yellow made its way in the process too!
In Part Two, I shared how I make my improv blocks. I made a stack of green and a stack of turquoise blocks. Tiny bits of the yellow fabric went in each block.
I have been wanting to play with a two color backing for a bit now, so in Part Three, I shared how I used gray and white to set my blocks. In no time, I had the quilt top finished.
And because the sun popped out today, I was able to snap an outdoor photo of the finished quilt. I find the gray and white background very playful.
This will certainly be something I revisit in the future.
For the quilting, I chose to do a simple squared off swirl.
And for the back of the quilt, no turquoise and lime green fabric found in my stash was safe. Whatever I could find went into this pieced back. It really cleared out some old fabric!
I like it!
And now for a few statistics:
Size: 55 x 68"
Large blocks trimmed to 8.5", Small blocks trimmed to 6.5"
Sashing and "stagger" pieces are all cut at 2.5"wide.
