Amanda Jean over at crazy mom quilts has been hosting an informal QAL for her scrap vortex quilt. I decided to join in and I have been having a ball sewing up my tiny scraps into larger and larger irregular shaped blocks.
It was time to put them up on my design wall so I could see how it looked. I was planning on sewing up a kid-sized quilt but as you can see I got a bit out of control with my sewing. Even after filling the wall space, I still have a large stack of blocks.
I thought this quilt would be a great opportunity to get rid of my black and multi-colors scraps. My initial thought was to use all sorts of colors but settled on keeping in the hot colors - red, pink, orange and yellow. As you can see, I also included a bit if turquoise and lime bits just for fun.
This quilt has been a great leaders/enders project so it has come together really quickly. I look forward to reading the next steps which should come out this week. If you are participating in the Scrap Vortex QAL, I would love for you to link up pictures this Sunday on Oh Scrap!
Amazingly, I STILL have a lot of scraps left!
