I am happy to be linking up to Oh Scrap at Quilting is more fun than housework
Scrappy quilts are my favorite kind of quilts and I have been loving reading all of Cynthia’s great ideas.
When I saw the Scrap- A- Palooza quilt for October, I knew that I had just the scraps for this project. For Christmas 2013 my husband had bought me a batik jelly roll and matching fat quarter pack. I made two double 4 patch lap quilts and still had a handful of scraps leftover just waiting for the right project to use them in.
Here is one of the double 4 patch quilts. I gave one as a wedding gift and kept the other for myself.
I cut the scraps into 2 1/2 inch pieces , chain pieced them together and alternated with long strips of cream to make this Scrap-A-Palooza quilt.
I am loving this vertical striped quilt. It measures about 42 ” by 42″. I am not sure if I will keep it for a baby quilt, or perhaps add a hanging sleeve so that it can go on the wall. The back is a wild paisley print that I picked up at a thrift store and the orange binding was a sale fabric that I bought in Alaska.
I am looking forward to seeing and making more Scrap quilts in 2015
