Scrappy Stripes Quilt

Another scrappy project finished! I’m so pleased with how this quilt turned out. It all started trying to use up my scraps. I began adding 2” wide strips in different lengths to see where it would take me (I like letting the fabric speak to me that way). I thought maybe I could get a baby quilt out of those scraps. But after I finished the scrappy panel I had the idea of adding a border. I typically don’t add borders to my quilts, I don’t know why. But I think I’m going to start doing it more often; I quite like the look. I used a soft flannel for the backing (from my stash) in a beautiful sort of lime green color. I think the pop of color on the back adds a bit of whimsy.

It was such a fun quilt to make. I thought maybe I would write a tutorial on how to make this scrap-buster quilt. Would you be interested?

Wishing you a happy week!
