I've finally finished the top of my "scrap quilt". This is the quilt I got distracted by while I was organizing my scraps. I'm not going to quilt it for awhile so I thought I would post the top. It's made entirely of scraps or leftovers from other quilts. Some of the border and black sashing was fabric cut for a border on another quilt until I changed my mind....as I often do!
I wanted this to be made entirely from fabric that I had on hand, but I also wanted to start using soft backings like flannel and fleece for a warm cozy feel. While shopping recently I found an excellent buy on some wide white fleece, so that will become the back. I'm thinking about using a rainbow thread to quilt it with a free motion pattern. Since I only feel confident about two patterns that I know it will either be stippled or looped.
So I still have some fabric to cut up but little by little I'm getting there. I do some until I'm tired of it and then move on to something else. I'm not sure how I'll use the scraps, but they're easier to store and should be more useful cut up into predetermined shapes.
