More Scrappy Goodness!

Posted by

With all the great weather lately I have been very neglectful of my blog. I can be found most mornings on the pickleball courts near my home. I have more scrappy quilts to share resulting from the Scrap Sewciety BOM that I arranged for the Etobicoke Quilters Guild. Laurie; a relatively new quilter didn’t have a stash so she used a co-ordinatated grouping of FQ’s. I have loved the grey/soft yellow combination since Alfred Sung came out with a clothing collection of those colors years ago.

I love that you have to really look to find some blocks and others are very easy to see.

I have one more quilt for you to feast your eyes, unfortunately there is only one picture. Mary also made this for her granddaughter, who is just getting a big girl bed! Mary added a lot of extra blocks and didn’t follow the guidelines that I provide for putting the quilt together, something about needing a more symmetrical look. I applaud the result, as I know it takes a lot of math to get things right.

She kept her blocks in groupings by colouring and didn’t make a string star block. She added a lot of heart blocks of different sizes and filler (coping) strips of half square triangles. She quilted this herself using my all-time favourite;the Baptist Fan. I only wish I had closeups to share.

If you belong to a guild, I am offering this as a guild project with great instructions and encouragement via zoom, so please feel free to contact me, I would love to work with you. There are beautiful quilts waiting to be made from your stash!

  1. I love seeing different versions of this beautiful pattern. Looking forward to starting mine this summer. I think I’ll do it in neutrals like the original.

  2. It is great to see variations of the same pattern. Fabric colours, placement of blocks and the actual quilting all playing a part. The Grimsby Quilters’ Guild has taken up the challenge as their 2021-2022 BOM with Sandy’s assistance. So looking forward to seeing more examples of this quilt. We all have a lot of money invested in our ‘scrap bin’ so why not make a beautiful scrappy quilt with them.
