My First Scrappy Quilt

If you are a newer follower of my blog, you may have thought I’ve been quilting for a long time, but the fact is I’ve only been doing so for a year and a half.

One of my cousins had previously asked me to make her a quilt commission back in November (the green & red tree quilt is hers).  She wanted another of my quilts, but for it to be more spring-like since her family was still using the one they had, which they want to use for winter.  She asked me if I’d make her a purple/white/grey combination scrappy quilt.

Since I hadn’t been using all my left over fabric from the quilts I had made yet, I gathered my fabrics together and asked her about some of the ideas I had.  She liked this free pattern I found. I just tried to figure out how to change the colors up, and that was that.  I started cutting up fabric and worked on it best I could.  The only fabric I had to buy for it was the backing and binding.  She said she loved it when I dropped it off to her!

Most of the next quilts you’ll see on this blog will be made from scraps (the next one I’ll be posting is not, but the ones afterwards will be).  I thank my sons for always being willing to help me hold up my quilts for photos when my husband isn’t home to take the photos of me holding them up.
