Happy Monday! I finished my scrappy sew along quilt! I was off to a great start on this quilt earlier this summer…but my sewing was interrupted by the sewing of six new quilts and a fun teaching trip. So as soon as the last new pattern quilt was off the the quilter, I knew I was going to work on finishing up this project!
This was one of those quilts that just sort of came my way…and since it used
up so many scraps I could hardly wait to finish it up (although my scrap bins really don’t look any smaller…how does that always happen?). An amazing quilter who has inspired me over the last decade or so calls these quilts made entirely from your stash and scraps “free quilts,” and I’ve taken to calling them the same thing!
Most of the dark fabrics are left overs from the spring market sewing I did from the Fig Tree collection Hazel + Plum, but the lights come from a variety of Fig Tree collections…including some of the earliest ones!
I think this quilt has a fall feeling to it…and I’m definitely ready for some fall weather around here! I can hardly wait to get out the fall quilts and add this one to the mix!
I just need to stitch up a backing (which will also be from my stash) and get this off to be quilted!
Not only did I have a great time finishing up my grandmother’s version of this quilt, but I also really enjoyed making my own quilt using scraps. If this is your first time seeing a post about this quilt…you can go here for links to all of the previous posts on this project including the directions for making your own scrappy quilt!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
