Journey Of A Quilt: Part 3

Thanks to the holiday (Veterans' Day),

the journey of my quilt was able to continue.


I decided on a simple layout:



Since this is a quilt made out of scraps,

I threw in 1 1/2" strips made from leftover scraps.

I love how the strips break up the row of blocks

while adding just enough to the simple layout.





Next I added  a simple quilting design.



I am obsessed with scrappy binding.

 I took more leftover scraps and cut them into 2 1/2" strips.

The result is this lovely roll of binding:







Now all that I need to do is sit down,

choose something from my TiVo list,

and sew on the binding.


Until Next Time... Happy Quilting!

  1. I have a question for you. Is it easy to place your blog title and year on each of your pics? How does one go about that?

    Your quilt top looks sooo yummy:)

  3. Love it! Question...when making scrappy binding...how long of a piece do you generally use from each fabric?

  5. I love your quilt and that strip you added between the blocks is perfect. And I'm a huge fan of scrappy binding too. I think that it adds a lot of interest to an otherwise boring edge and uses up scraps too!!

  6. Adorable!

    I haven't decided what to do with my HST yet. For now, they are sitting on my desk in a little bowl looking all cute. One of these days, I'll decide how I want them out together.
