Scrap Quilt #2





I'm planning to show you these scrap quilts in the order that I made the tops.  So as I was cutting out scraps, I realized that my blacks/darks and also my whites/lights baskets, had some larger chunks in them.  I couldn't bear to cut them up into the smaller pieces so I decided to cut a bunch of 5" squares and see how many I would get. 

And I got enough to make this lap sized quilt!   I kind of love this design, using only half square triangles and then some squares in the corners to give it that star design.  (original inspiration from @ruthhasegutierrez on Instagram.  She's a quilter who dyes all her own fabric and makes amazing quilts)

Without planning this way, a lot of these scraps had bits of pink and yellow in them, so I purposely added a couple yellow squares, and then this pink piece of double gauze was so perfect for the back!

I quilted it in simple straight lines, which is my go-to type of quilting if I don't have some other idea. 

After washing, this one ends up at 49"x 56", so again a nice smaller throw quilt.

And as usual, this quilt as well as all these scrap quilts, will be available in my shop.
