For a couple of years I made scrap blocks whenever I was between projects. The method was to combine any bright scraps of whatever size/shape, then trim the block to 6.5″ unfinished. When I had 88 blocks I decided it was time to quit playing around and make them into a quilt, so here it is.
Name: 616 Scraps
Designed and made by: me
Finished size; 48″ x 66″
Quilted by: Linda Nichols
Of course the scrap pile has only grown larger, so I’m off to start another round of scrap blocks.
Beautiful! I love the scrappiness there is so much in your quilt that captures my eye 😊 the quilting is also so much fun to look at.
Thanks. Those blocks were fun to make.
Scraps are more prolific than rabbits! It’s soooo rewarding whenever they get rounded up for a finish like your latest 616 Scraps. Yay!
Yes, I am pretty sure what those scraps are up to when I’m not looking 😀
Scrappy guilts are my favorite. I am preparing for a quilt retreat and plan to take my scrappy blocks.
Good morning, Chela! Lucky you, going on a retreat 🙂
What a great quilt and what fun you had creating it! I love each of the fussy cut pieces of special fabrics peeking out among the colorful menagerie of scraps!
Yes, novelty fabrics just have to jump in there. Thanks for noticing 😁
Fun, fun! I love quilts like this. They’re especially appropriate for a baby. Bright colors and shapes. What could be better? Well done for keeping the scrap pile managable(?)
Thanks! Better yet, it was fun 🙂
Thank you! We had a sunny afternoon with a high near 65. Just sayin’
Love the quilt name!
Love this quilt. The idea is now on my “to do” list. Hope mine looks half as good as yours.
Thanks! I look forward to seeing yours.
I’ve always been a “the more fabrics, the merrier” kind of quilter, so I adore scrap quilts, and this one is lovely. I’ve been using up all my scraps to make blocks that I am hand quilting quilt-as-you-go style. It will be interesting to see what the final quilt is like!
Excellent! I look forward to seeing your quilt 🙂
Oh what a lovely, vibrant quilt. It is an ode to the magic of scraps
Thank you, Mariss 🙂
Oh my goodness, oh my goodness – I love it! Love it! Very creative use of scraps! Working on catching up on posts and this was a visual delight when I came to this post!
Thank you. And goodness knows we all have plenty of scraps! (BTW I am often behind on reading posts)
