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:)

  2. I feel like you're teasing me. I want to see the whole thing, I'm trying to put the quilt together in my head. It looks so pretty, I can't wait to see the finished picture!!

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

  4. I love the strip of color between the rows of blocks, very cute :)

  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.

  7. You pulled this quilt together fast. It is beautiful. I like the strips between blocks, too. Very cute!

  8. Your quilt is just wonderful! I love the fabrics you used.

  9. Your projects make me happy just looking at them. Great job Stefanie. Scrap blocks are the best.
