My first scrappy quilt...ever!

Recommended Posts

I have been quilting since 2008 and have always been afraid of making scrappy quilts. For me, they are to busy, too many fighting patterns, just too much chaos.  I decided to tackle my fear of all this and make a small quilt from my scraps.  I used an Arkansas Crossroads block and am really pleased with my "controlled" scrappy quilt.   Details on my blog: http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2018/02/im-not-afraid-of-scrappy-quilts.html

I hear you, Ann! My OCD can't handle really scrappy quilts either, it took me more than a decade to attempt one. I still can't handle the really chaotic ones but I found out that I am okay with them if they have a background colour like yours. I love how you kept the colours together, will have to remember this. Great job!

Heh, I am finding a lot of other quilters that are saying this also.  Thanks~!

I love it!  I don't like to piece at all just do the quilting but you have given me an incentive to piece something this nice for one of my grandchildren.  I really like the simplicity of the piecing you have done and also I like the quilting you choose to quilt it with nice job.  Now keep at it.

It is wonderful!!! Way to go on tackling something you haven't tried before. Your quilting suits it perfectly and I love your binding!

Great job!  Color combinations are right on spot.  I've never made a scrappy quilt for the same reasons but after seeing yours, there may be hope for me too.  Lord, knows I have a lot of scraps that I can't bear to toss out either.

Wonderful job!  I’ve been thinking of making a scrappy quilt for quite some time. I finally started at looking for ideas for making one. Love what you decided on.

Great job keeping the colors under control.  You please my own OCD with this one.  And on top of everything else, I love the fabric you chose for the binding; it sets off everything else very nicely.
