Secret Sewing Finish

 As I was preparing for my book submission, I was also secretly sewing a number of quilts.  I have over 30 (!) projects either finished or in the works.  Now I can finally start sharing them with you.

I had a huge amount of black and white scraps.  I decided to get out my AccuQuilt fabric cutter and cut them up into 2.5" squares.  I then turned them into scrappy nine patches.

After looking through my scrap bins, I chose to go with primary colored blocks placing them in a diagonal layout.  I thought the colors would be great for a small child.

This quilt is one of the examples I used in my Well Suited pattern sheets.  My goal for the Scrap Mixology pattern sheets is to invite quilters to be creative with color and layout.  I give cutting/sewing instructions for simple blocks and then encourage the quilter to mix components and design their own quilt - all from their scraps.

I hope to release the second module next month.  So stay tuned!

A big thanks to all of you who have already purchased the first one :)


  1. Secret sewing is always tough, and I'm excited that you will be able to share all that hard work with us now.

  2. I love how graphic this quilt is even though it is quite simple. Awesome job! ;^)

  3. Gorgeous quilt, Cynthia! I am returning to quilting after a long hiatus. So much inspiration here!


  4. That's a fun switch of the brights and the black and whites! Someone is going to love it!

  5. You really had a ton of different black and white fabrics! They give this quilt so much depth and the primary color backgrounds are so lively. Fun, fun quilt! :)

  6. I would love to buy your Scrap Mixology patterns but I do not use Paypal and do not wish to get an account. Is there another option I can pay using my credit card?

  7. This quilt was a great way to showcase some YELLOW scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, Cynthia!! Going primary really worked.

  8. I love this quilt, it's such a great blend of colors. Happy stitching!


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