Scrappy quilt

16 12 2007

When you make a quilt, you always end up with bits of fabric left over, none of which seem to be much good for anything. But being a pack rat, you don’t want to throw the leftover bits out, and so you keep them for “Justin” (that’s “Justin” as in “Justin Case”… just in case). And that’s where a scrappy quilt comes in handy.

I saw a picture of the “Road to California” block and thought it would be a good candidate for some of my scraps—and so it was. I made the block, then yesterday I quilted it and made it into a 20″ cushion cover. I had to buy the fabric for the back, but the rest of the quilt was made from scraps. Now my scrap stash is a little less!

Great job on your scrap quilt! I love scrappy quilts…they have so much character. Thanks for the kind comment on my courthouse steps!

Great work on your quilt.
You know Justin too? He’s my best friend. I just finished an (almost) all stash quilt, not scraps, just things I couldn’t pass up.
