Having tidied my studio this week and cleared out and sorted through all my fabrics, the scrap buckets were crying out to me.
Coupled with being in a manic sewing mood to accessorise all the clean freshly sorted rooms, I couldn't rest until I'd played with some of the scraps.
Some of my scraps are so diddy that at the time, I'm not actually sure why I keep them, but when projects like this come to mind, it reminds me why I never, and I mean NEVER throw away any fabrics. Even the teeniest inch square piece of loveliness has a use.
This was the easiest, quickest, prettiest quilt I have ever made. I simply laid scraps onto wadding until I'd filled all the gaps. Then it was a matter of sewing every edge in place. There's no front-to-front sewing going on here. This one is all about the raw edges.
A quick one piece plain backing was sewn on and then I whipped up some green stripy binding (oh, I'm such a pro at binding now) and before you knew it even the dollies had a new quilt.
As predicted, Ruby wants a full size version for her bed.
Not sure that will be quite so quick to whip up...
