Scrap Quilt #4

I feel like this is a lot of photos of quilt #4, but there were just so many individual blocks and fabric combos that I love, I wanted to show them all close up!

So as I was cutting up all my scraps, I found that I had a lot of 5" squares or larger chunks that worked well for these squares.  So I made a large stack of them.  I wasn't sure how to put them all together in one quilt, as they seemed quite varied in their style. 

Now, my previous quilt showed that you can totally put all fabrics together in a scrappy quilt, and with the right pattern it will look great.  BUT, there are times when I like to separate what I call 'dirty' and 'clean' colors.  Does someone have a better visual name for me?  "Dirty" is not a bad name here, maybe "muddy" would be a better description.  Anyways, I separated all those scrappy 5" squares into 2 stacks going by these criteria. 

The quilt you see here is the result of the 'dirty' stack.  When I decided to make pinwheel blocks, this cream and black polka dot jumped out as a fun sashing.  And then you can never go wrong with this shade of green that I used for the little center blocks.

The pinwheels are all smooshed up against the edge without a border.  This is directly inspired by a vintage quilt that I own, made by my great grandmother.  (Someday I plan to show you all the quilts around my house that are made by my family!)

The backing is a super fun print in that shade of warm minty green.  It's full of vintage sewing patterns and measurements, I just love it!


  1. I have the same problem! I usually call them "dusty" or "grayed" as opposed to "bright" or "vibrant".

  2. I read a blog that refers to them as "cream based" and "white based" colors. Which sort of clicked for me mentally, but I totally know what you mean by "dirty".

  3. This is another gorgeous scrappy quilt! I tend to split them into muddy and clean.

  4. Another fabulous quilt. Although these are scraps they still show your eye for colour, the aqua squares really pop and bring ti all together. x

  5. I love scrap quilts. I think they are some of my favorites. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I am totally smitten with your fabric selection. It all seems so random yet works so well. I've been admiring your quilts for a few years now and just bought two. LOVE them. Love your fabric selection. Works SO well and I'm so happy to have your work grace my home. Looking forward to my next purchase.

  7. Love them all! Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Your fabrics are great and you put them together so well!

  9. Another great scrappy finish and I absolutely LOVE the vintage vibe of this quilt!

  10. This one's my favorite! It looks like something my Great Aunt Hazel (who raised my dad so was more like my grandmother) would have made. She was a practical woman who made mostly practical quilts and they are wonderful like she was.

  11. Love this quilt so much! There's just something about the combination of colors that works beautifully.:)

  13. Looking at the two quilts, I think perhaps “muted” vs “bright” is what you mean. Another commenter mentioned the white vs cream base, which also contributes to this effect. Your combinations and ability to select based on these types of contrasts make for such amazingly engaging quilts.
