I modified this from multiple quilts I have seen because I liked the idea of turning squares into those elongated hexagons as well as the idea of pointing everything toward the center.
Not incidentally, it also used some more of my (many, many) 5″ squares.
It’s sometimes important for Elvis to make an appearance 🙂
I wasn’t sure about this binding, but I think it worked out OK. That’s not my usual type of backing, but it was available on short notice!
Name: Really? Another Scrap Quilt?
Finished size: 65″ x 65″
Designed and made by: me, with inspiration from multiple other quilts I’ve seen
Quilted by: Linda Nichols
Just charming! I love the scrappiness. And just as you do, I like the symmetry of the design. Great work! Elvis surely approves.
Elvis and I thank you 🙂
Awesome scrappy finish!! I think the binding looks great too 🙂
Thank you 😊
I love this! Great design and joyful scrappiness! 🙂
Thanks. It was fun.
The five inch squares( Elvis, Coffee cup, fox, etc.) add a special touch to this playful quilt.
Hmm, yes. And I think I need to hire you to write my artist’s statement 🙃. When does your blog start again?
Hopefully soon. Every time I think I can get it started, something comes up.
This is a true scrappy scrap quilt using artistic tools to carve out a great design (light/dark values). Great finish.
You are really pushing metal to the pedal, lady!
Thanks for your kind comments, as always 🙂
Absolutely fabulous. Thank you for always inspiring!
Thank you, Carrie : )
So true1 Each of Mary’s posts offer inspiration.
Fun scrap quilt and great design. Love the Elvis fabric!
It’s great! It’s filed away to steal someday. I like the alternating square/oblong, and the alternating light background and dark background. I’ll have to cut more 5-inch squares before I can do it. 🙂
So, shall I send you some 5 inch squares? 😀
I think you are very brave to tackle all those angles. Well done on a very striking quilt
Thank you. Luckily the angles were easier than they looked 🙃
Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go…a great quilt. You are quite talented and apparently a fast quilter.
Even better than being a fast quilter, I am retired so I have plenty of time to quilt 🙂
You haven’t said anything in your blog about your cochlear implant in a while. How’s that going?
You may wonder why I’m interested. 1)We had a patient with a cochlear implant years ago and I always was the one to see her because she still needed the provider to look directly at her and speak clearly. The doctor hadn’t the patience 🙄 2)My personal trainer has a hearing impairment and is about to try hearing aids. I suspect others are surrounded by folks with hearing problems as well, so I appreciate your sharing.

Thanks for asking. I will give an update in my blog tomorrow. Speech reading is critical for us with hearing loss. Unfortunately, those who lose their hearing later in life do not always have speech reading ability. But thank you for taking the time with your patient. I’m sure it meant the world to them.
Good luck to your trainer. I love my digital hearing aids.
This is a winner of a quilt! I’ve used that “stripey” block technique, only reversed it for a signature block. I never even thought to put the dark in the center until I saw yours. Wow! Such a terrific quilt! I need to get making some scrappy quilts — I have too many scraps hanging around, and this is a lovely inspiration. Congratulations on a great finish!
Thank you! Of course I saw the idea somewhere–there’s still nothing new under the sun.
