Scrap-A-Palooza! Quilt #6 Finish (Part Three)

I can't wait to show you the adorable quilts made with this month's design.  This pattern is so quick and easy, I had my top sewn up in a day! 
But before I reveal the finishes, let's review the steps to this quilt so far.

Just a reminder, if you are ready to sew up some of your scraps, all of the quilts from the series can be viewed in the Scrap-A-Palooza quilt gallery tab above.  Not only can you see the quilt I made but I love to share what others have done.  There is all sorts of inspiration!

In Part One, we pulled our scraps and determined the best size to cut our rectangles.

Part Two had us choosing a layout and sewing the rectangles into rows.  We then sewed the rows together to quickly complete a top.

You can add sashing or simply sew the rows directly together.  This step is where you can really make the quilt uniquely your own.

Here is my quilt all finished up.  Too Cute!

For the quilting, I used the piecing layout to quilt in large scale wavy lines.

As I was cutting the rectangles for the top, I saved some of the larger pieces to use for the backing. 

As I begin a quilt, I like to start considering what I am going to use for the backing. A little pre-planning can really keep the costs down on your quilts!


We all have these leftover bag of scraps.  This is the perfect quilt to use them up!

A couple of other quilters joined in this month and take a look at what they did!


This is the quilt Diann is working on over at Little Penguin Quilts.  She is using some leftovers from a Kate Spain Honey Honey designer roll.  Love the little black sashing she floated between the bricks.

And Sandra over at Musings of a Menopausal Melon has already finished her quilt top from some leftover Simplicity fabrics.  She added some horizontal sashing and a lovely border.  She named it Floral Dreams - very inviting!

With July almost here, I need to get cracking on next month's quilt.  I think we are going to play with color this time.  Probably working with strings and gradating color.  Hope you join in the fun!

Why Scrap-A-Palooza?  Because Quilting is more fun than Housework!
