Scrappy Galore Finish

 I finished this scrappy quilt a few weeks ago and I think I forgot to share it!

Sorry, I had to take some indoor photos because our weather has been wet and cold.

This quilt started when I was cleaning out a drawer of bagged scraps.  I noticed that a couple of the bags had similar colored scraps and that is all it takes to get me started on a quilt.

First, I went through and paired up a bunch of triangles and turned them into improv HSTs.  These were then sewn together with various rectangles, squares and strips.

I really loved the color combination.  I did add a few bright red pieces into the mix.

It isn't a huge quilt.  I think it measures about 50" x 60".  I am happy to report that all of the scraps in the bags got used up and I even had to pull a few out of the general scrap bins.

Putting this quilt together was just entertainment for me so I think this will be one I will donate to my hospital donation project.

I put one of my Connecting Threads purchases on the back.  I quilted it with a edge to edge boxy meander and bound it with some dark green solid fabric that was in my stash.

I love to play with scraps!

Looking at your quilt makes me ponder my fabric choices. I need to pick out brighter fabric to put a little zing in my quilts. Thanks for sharing.

I love this! Makes me want to make another Scrap Vortex. How did you decide on the color combination? Were they scraps from a particular project? Beautiful finish, Cyndy!

Those were fabulous scrap bags of color. Love it. Fantastic quilt.

That is a great quilt! I love what the angles do to make it so interesting and break up the eye path. I wish I'd done more of that in my Vortex quilt, but to add it now would not give the effect yours has. Great colors!

A super scrappy delight! I love this mix of colours, those darker bits give a strong sense of balance.
