Another Scrap Finish

 Another week, another finish!  This will be the last finish for a little while, though, as I'm about to start a quilt for one of my nieces that will take me a little longer to make.  More on that next week!

This is a 44" lovely, made from my 2" strips and squares, the surprise additional size that I cut when I was tackling my scraps.
 It will look less folded once it's out of the washing machine, I'm sure!

I put the strips together 'lasagne quilt' style, stopping once I'd got to a size that I thought I could cut up usefully.

I thought that adding the sashing and border to bring the size up a little was a good plan, and rotating alternate blocks seems to work well too.

I shall pass all three of these scrap quilts on to Project Linus at my quilt group next week.
After watching a terrific  Patsy Thompson DVD (thank you Avril!) I decided to quilt with a loop de loop vine.  My leaves need some work on consistency, but its a good start point for me!

You can see here the leaves  amongst the loops on the back of it here.

I'm off to fondle some fabric and perhaps even iron and cut it - planning and starting a new project is always fun, isn't it?


  1. Hi! This is just so pretty. P.R.E.T.T.Y. I love your fabric choices and especially the gray background. I never use gray YET, but I really need to because I love how it looks. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Oh Plum this one would be hard to part with for me !!!!!! It has a amish appeal for me. So simple but quiet charming, and I think you are so right rotating those blocks makes this quilt so special. Some one is going to be very very happy to receive this lovely quilt. Cheers Glenda

  3. That's a really lovely scrappy quilt! Xxx
