I have been super busy getting ready for Fall Quilt Market and the launch of my new fabric line and I am already working on my new spring line. But amongst all the hub bub of deadlines, I picked up a quilting book and saw a great scrap quilt! I had this overwhelming feeling of "I HAVE to make this NOW" kind of thing. Have you ever felt this before??? I have but actually never acted on it.... honestly!
But this time I did. This pattern is just so appealing to me and boy to I have scraps to make it! This is a pattern from The Big Book of Scrappy Quilts from Martingale/That Patchwork Place ! The pattern is called Scrappy Rectangles by Jo Parott. I think everyone who has scraps should make this one!!!
I have committed to myself to make one a day for everyday that I am home. I am thinking that in just a few short months I will have a very large quilt! So far, I am really enjoying what it looks like. Because, as you know, I have a very huge stash of black and white and brights, that means that I have a huge amount of scraps of the same.
What do you think? Three days, three blocks and I am in love with the blocks thus far! The rectangles are 2" x 3 1/2" cut. I love mixing them up! I think you all should challenge yourselves to go through your scraps and do something similar.... come on... you know you want to! 😉
Until Next Time...
