Scrap Quilt

It's Sew 'n Tell Friday and here is what I have to share. Every month Cozy Quilts holds a free strip club day and gives away a free pattern to everyone that comes. The pattern I received is called Leftovers. It uses all 2 1/2" strips. In my previous posts I was organizing my fabrics and scraps and the goal was to use up scraps from my stash this year. I thought this would be the perfect pattern to use my scraps with. It took a bit of math work to use my scraps instead of the fabric requirements called for in the pattern but it was well worth it.
UPDATE: These photos have replaced my old ones.


Since the goal was to use up my scraps I went for the queen size. It seems like an eternity cutting and putting all the pieces together that it took me a few weeks to complete the top. No, I wasn't sewing everyday just to complete the top. It was getting myself to sit down and sew. I love the end result. If you don't want to use your scraps just buy a jellyroll and follow the directions you'll complete the quilt top in no time.



That's all for today. Have a great weekend and enjoy the Olympics opening ceremony. We will be watching later.

this is so striking!

If it makes you feel any better about the cat - my kids are the same way with anything I make. As soon as it's finished (pillow, quilt, etc.) they are ALL over it. :)
