Monday's Design Wall Scraps

Next Month I am the featured speaker at a local guild.  I have done some speaking and teaching over the years....but it still makes me a little nervous.  The topic is "Using Your Scraps and Stash".  I love to take the leftovers and make something beautiful.  Inspiration usually comes from on-line photos. 

Scrap quilts usually begin with choosing a unit and a size.  This scrap design began by having leftovers from 2" nine patches.  Many of the strips had a useable chunk of fabric left at the end.  By connecting the chunks together and picking a size.....1 1/4" x 2" the light and dark sides developed into these units.  You can see the brown was added to have them flip flop back and forth.
These rows will be added to a brown stash fabric.  Applique will be added to the brown sections.  The blue is the bias.  Some flowers and leaves will be added.

 Always the there enough brown.  A border fabric to surround the whole thing to round out the quilt.  Check and see how long this takes.  Deadline...30 days.

I am linking up with Judy L's Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times
and with Cynthia for Oh Scrap!

Just Another Quilter


  1. I like it already, and I'm sure your beautiful applique will make it very special. Your guild class will love it too! ---"Love"

  2. Looking lovely & scrappy! You've got me curious to see more! No pressure here:)

  3. Eeek, I hate deadlines! The quilt is coming along famously and it will look marvelous in your presentation, even if it is not 100% finished for it.

  4. Wonderful use of those scraps. Good luck meeting your deadline and thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  5. I like the quilt design, with applique, it will be great. It looks like it could be a fall themed quilt, I'll be watching to see how it progresses! You will be great as a speaker, since you know your subject, it will be easy!

  6. I love scrap quilts and this is shaping up to be a stunner. I'm sure your talk will be interesting and the audience will no doubt appreciate you giving your time.
