Horizontal Scrappy Quilt Finishes

One of the best things about my Scrap-A-Palooza series (besides sewing up the many fabric bits that litter my sewing room!) is sharing what others are doing with their scraps.  Here are a few more finishes using the Horizontal Bar quilt as inspiration but making adjustments to make it their own!

Here is a beautiful quilt a friend of mine made.  She had recently made other quilts using Tula Pink and  Laura Gunn fabrics.  With all the left over fabric from those quilts and a few other scraps, she made this lovely quilt.  The soft blue solid she used for the sashing worked beautifully!

Diann over at Little Penguin Quilts made this adorable baby quilt.  I love how she made the last bar a combination of all the previous colors and widened the sashing bars for more negative space.  You will want to check out her post to view other pictures and see her quilting.  So much fun!

This quilt called Flowering Dogwood was made by Sandra over at Musings of a Menopausal Melon.  Alternating the purple and green bars of scraps between the soft gray sashing made a wonderfully inviting quilt!  Once again, you will want to check out her post to see how she quilted it.

Hope these inspire you to sew up some of your own scraps.  You can find even more inspiration in the Scrap-A-Palooza Gallery page.  Thanks for sewing along!!


I plan on sharing this post with Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.  Hope you hop on over and see what others have been up to!


  1. Great examples. Looking good! Thanks for sharing!

  2. WOW...these are all so gorgeous! I love the simplicity of using horizontal lines.

  3. Love the look of the horizontal sashing and borders. It really highlights the fabrics and adds a lot of interest. Great pattern for using up scraps!

  4. Many lovely scrappy quilts coming from your project! Aha! now I know what you look like! :) Love your pretty photo! I had imagined you with short, dark hair! I finally finished up my place mats, a design by you. Love them!

  5. Totally lovely.....and such a simple finish for all those little pieces that reside/lurk in my corners, too!!!! Wonderfully do-able. Will ponder this possibility as I complete the 2 clients' quilts currently in progress!!!! Great post!!!

  6. I'm inspired as well. Really looked at the quilting on all...need to try quilting a big circle...looks so cool!

  7. I love seeing your design in these other fabrics. I can see myself doing something like this. I am saving all my scraps from my year of stash busting.

  8. Very inspired! Thanks for rounding up and sharing.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and try to respond with an email.
