    Scrapaholic quilt finished

    I've seen quilts made with this block on several web sites, using different block settings. I think I still prefer to make log cabin quilts with my scraps, but this was a fun quilt to make for a change. I subscribe to the theory that all fabrics can co-exist in a scrap quilt, and I don't care which ones share a seam, as long as they aren't from the same bolt. I did use some medium fabrics that muddy up the pattern in places, but I kind of like that too because it keeps your eye moving (that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

    The blocks are 7.5" finished, quilt measures 90" square. I used Soft and Bright poly batting (from the Warm Company, makers of Warm and Natural) and quilted it in swirls. I really like that batting. I started to try to do some ruler work for the quilting (needed the practice after taking the craftsy class), but quickly realized it wouldn't show up with such a busy pattern. So... one area actually has a couple of big stars quilted in it, and the rest is the swirls. I think I'll pretend that I did that on purpose too.

    We can pretend if we want to. I love your quilt. It looks hard to make with scraps.

    I wouldn't go back to log cabins just yet! I think you aren't giving this one enough credit. I like it alot! and log cabins are my scrap quilt of choice!

    Beautiful, I agree and think all colors go together in a scrappy. I also think all flowers go together in a bouguet or flower garden. A great pattern and great quilting.
