Not Always Scrappy

 Well, take a look!  I actually made a quilt from my stash fabric.

It is overcast and rainy today so photos are really difficult to take.  But here is a photo of the fabric pull so you can see the lovely colors.  I didn't have enough of any one mint colored fabric, so I used three different prints to meet the pattern requirements.  

My kitchen is barely big enough for the quilt.

I love all those soft colors spattered with the floral and stripe prints.

I also tried the lighting in my studio.  It is still looking a bit washed out.

I used a dark blue sketch fabric on the back and quilted it with a light blue thread.  Big ruffly flowers give the quilt a wonderful texture.

It was a nice change to work with large pieces and follow a pattern.  This pattern is called Studio Chic by Artichoke Patterns.  I bought it over a decade ago and I am not sure if it is still in print.

Now I am ready to get to my scrap bins.  I do still have a few stash pieces I might try and make a quilt from but that will be another day.

Enjoy your weekend!

(Today is the last day of Connecting Threads big sale.  A few prints from this quilt came from there!)

  1. That's a neat design! I love the stained glass effect. It does look like a great way to use some larger prints without cutting them into small pieces. The blue/green floral that looks like Queen Anne's Lace is my favorite!

  2. That is a really pretty quilt. My mind would have never put some of those fabrics in there but they work! Your quilting is nice as well.

  3. I love the way you framed it all. Really pretty!

  4. Beautiful quilt! I agree with you -- the colors work so perfectly with each other. The fact that it was a stash-busting quilt scores a double win!

  5. The quilted ruffly flowers are such a fun motif and match the prints nicely. What a lovely quilt!

  6. A non scrappy quilt! That is a change of pace. Looks great.

  7. Wow, no scraps, I might be in shock, hehehe. Just kidding, I love it!! Looks like a pretty quick quilt too.

  8. Great pattern for large prints and focus fabrics.

  9. God is so wonderful!. I recently got cured from both HSV1 and HSV2 after using Doctor Kham African effective herbal medicine for just two weeks. Dr Kham is so powerful and his herbal medicine works for real. Dr. Kham is highly recommended as his African herb medicine for herpes cure is simply the best. I used the herb medicine from Doctor Kham for only two weeks, and behold! Both the hsv1 & hsv2 inside of my body was totally eradicated from my nervous & immune system. I'm so excited, At last I finally got cured from herpes disease. All thanks to you Dr. Kham for your marvelous deed!... God blesses you forever, as I'll keep sharing the good news on how effective your African herbal medicine is & how powerful you are. I received the herb medicine from Dr. Kham through UPS Shipping Company 4-5 days after I ordered the medication. I visited Doctor Kham by email ( Better still, you can reach him on WHATSAPP: +2348159922297. I love you doctor Kham, keep doing what you know how to do best. You're the best Herbalist doctor online.
