Back in January I tackled my blue scraps bin and created the Bargello twist and turn quilt I named 3273 K. Of the 500 scrappy blue rectangles I cut for that project, I still had about 100 left. So instead of trying to cram them back into my scraps bin, I pulled out all my skinny blue and brown string scraps and made this! No pattern, just winging it 😉
There are so many different fabrics in this quanket, I wouldn’t know where to start to list which ones are “pieces of the past” – heck, I guess they’re all technically “pieces of the past” since they’re all from past projects! I plan to link this to the weekly linky party over at Quilting is more fun than Housework. Pop over to see all the other great scappy projects others have been working on.
This was donated to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services in March 2019, for a foster child.
Beautiful! Great way to use those scraps for a great cause. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
Thanks! I’ve been making good progress so far this year with bustin’ through my scraps!
I too think its a beautiful quilt. Definitely a good way to use scraps. Maybe I should try that way and see if it works for me.
Thank you! Early in my quilting endeavors, I used the strip technique a lot, since it is relatively quick and fuss-free. While this particular quilt did not use the usual strip technique, I sort of used the technique to quickly combine my scrap pieces together.
