Scrap Quilt #6








Time to show you another of the scrap quilts!  This is one that wasn't in the plans either.  As I was nearing the end of cutting up all the scraps, I seemed to have a nice sized pile of little strips that hadn't been cut into anything else. 

So of course I made a log cabin quilt, as one does!  I used my favorite shade of vintagey green/blue for the center blocks.  In such a wildly scrappy quilt, it can be nice to have this little touch of connection between the blocks.

I ended up loving the blocks in this quilt so much, that it's almost a favorite!  I guess there are a lot of little bits of my most loved fabrics in this quilt.  And it always amazing to see all these different fabrics sitting next to each other in a block.  I keep seeing a different block that is my new favorite!

I decided to quilt this one in the ditch between the blocks and then tied with yarn in the center of each block.  I love the feel and texture this gives the quilt.  It makes it a bit puffier and so soft and squishy.

And the Liberty of London backing sure doesn't hurt it!  I bought a big chunk of this fabric when it was on sale at Fabric.com and I wish I had bought more because it's one of those pieces that I could back almost every quilt with.  I love a two-color backing like this, and the shade and print on this one are the very best!  (the print is called Capel by Liberty and it comes in a bunch of colors)

Dimensions on this one are 45"x60" so it's perfect for a lap quilt or child/toddler.

  1. This is super cute, I really like the collage and varietyof fabrics. I'm working on one too. I would love to tie a quilt with yarn, but the bulk of the yarn won't go through the fabric. I've even tried pliers. Do you have any tips?

  3. Another beauty! I like the fact that you chose a combo of ditch quilting and adding the yarn ties. Definitely a soft and pliable finish!
