It certainly wasn't careful planning that I would be sharing this scrap vortex quilt on Black Friday but it seems appropriate doesn't it?!
This is my second Scrap Vortex. My first one was made with lots of smaller scraps and bright colors. My intent with this recent one was to sew up my black and white scraps. The color red seemed like a good color to add to them.
I also used a number of strings that were in my scrap bin. It definitely gives this quilt an altogether different look than my last one.
I did stall out on this project for a bit. I was finding my quilt center was getting a bit chaotic for me so I stopped at a rather small size. I knew I was going to have to calm it down a bit with a solid black border. Because I still had a number of scraps, I decided to add some pieced squares into two corners.
Even though I am not a fan of this color combination, I really like the look of this quilt.
And the back is almost as fun as the front. I thought I would never use these two black, red and white pieces that have been in my stash forever. I guess they were just waiting for me to sew up the perfect quilt.
