Oh Scrap! : The Popular Vote

I tallied up the votes for everyone's favorite layout on my string quilt and the third layout was the popular vote.  So I put all the blocks back up on my design wall and am slowly sewing them up into a quilt top.

The quilt will be 60" square when it is finished so it barely fits on my smaller design wall. (Which is jammed in a corner and difficult to photograph.)  I was originally planning on binding it in blue but red might look nice too!

This is the only scrap sewing I have been doing....What about you!


It is now your turn to share what you have been making with scraps. 
Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

    Quilting is more fun than Housework

    Your RWB string blocks are looking great! I love the layout.

    I like the layout, too! The border blocks finish it up nicely!

    Libby in TN said...

    I really like the way you've incorporated the red blocks into an inner border. Nice job!

    Kate said...

    Yeah, that was my favorite layout! Happy scrappy stitching today.

    I love how this quilt top is coming along. It's going to make a beautiful quilt.

    Gretchen Weaver said...

    Why don't you still have blue binding but add a red flange. The quilt is looking beautiful.

    Kat said...

    Whoa, cool scrap quilt! I love it.

    I love the layout, beautiful RWB quilt.

    Kristi said...

    I love your style of 'controlled scrappiness'. This string quilt is fantastic! I have one more string project for my 'neutral' strings, then I'm going to have to cut up more fabric! :)

    Karen's Korner said...

    Another gorgeous scrappy on its way to completion.

    chrisknits said...

    Very striking top. Love the look of the outer border fabrics.

    MissPat said...

    What Gretchen said: blue binding with red flange would be perfect.

    Barb Neiwert said...

    Big smiles here for creating such a lovely quilt out of scraps. Awesome!

    Jayne said...

    I love what you did with this quilt top! Red would be gorgeous as the binding!!

    Very striking!

    Oooh I love the layout - another great layout for a string quilt. I finished up some patriotic table runners for my mom and myself. A little late but we can be patriotic all summer.

    Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

    The layout is perfect! Have you thought about how you're going to quilt it? I have a jelly roll quilt that needs quilted but am having a creative block for ideas. Hopefully I'll break free soon! :)
