My scraps seem to be getting out of control! In a desire to sew a bunch of them up quickly, I decided to remake some of my previous Scrap-A-Palooza quilts. Today, I am ready to share a finish using the same process I used for my Vertical Strip Quilt back in October of 2014.
This time I used strips that were 4.5" wide and kept to a very narrow color range. I also added in some orphan HSTs here and there to use them up. To make my quilt just a little bit wider (without having to sew another scrappy strip), I added some long strips I had to the edge.
(It is always good when you can squeeze in a few more scraps into a quilt!)
I had saved out some larger chunks which I pieced and used in the backing. Many of these strips are made from a bunch of smaller pieces of the same fabric.
For the quilting I went with some giant messy flowers. I really like how it turned out.
Here is a picture of the original quilt I made. It is still a favorite of mine!
A few of my quilting clients have also made this same quilt.
This one was made from all green, yellow and purple scraps.
As you can see, her scrap strips went all the way to the edge.
I really like how she used a print for her background fabric!
And another client used up a bunch of her AMH scraps and made this lovely quilt.
...and she wanted me to quilt my favorite daisy chain quilting on it. Woo Hoo!
I started the Scrap-A-Palooza series to provide some quick ideas for sewing up scraps. Most of them can be adapted to fit the colors and sizes of scraps you have on hand.
And many are super quick and easy to sew!
Stay tuned...I will be grabbing another bag of scraps out my grandmothers basket and choosing another pattern soon. I certainly have a lot to pick from!
