    Another from the scrap pile.....

    Im still working on the scraps that have multiplied during the night and I do have to say I'm making quite a dent.. I still have tons to use up but I'm happy with what I've accomplished so far and its only March.. lol..

    This one started from a chunk of white TOT fabric.. I cut it 6.5in sq... and stole strips from my strip scraps... I have a tote of just assorted wonky strips..( I dont mix my 'perfect" strips 1-2.5xwof, those have totes of their own.. lol.. ) and decided WONKY LOG CABIN style... and off i went... it was very colorful.. THEN... i had the unpleasing white center.. yuck.. !!!

    I found a chunk of the teak fabric and used my go to cut out rag stars and hearts, one layer wasnt enough rag for me so i found other scraps and made them all 3-4 layers of other 'bright' fabrics.. I used the same teal to border it (only fabric i had to use off the bolt).. I Found an equally busy and bright floral fabric- kind felt like the old the 1930s feed sack fabric- to use as backing that was gifted (she was purging her stash- YAY ME !!!!! ).. I binded it with leftover binding from another project.. So all in all its made mostly from scraps and freebie fabrics !!!

    My kiddo named it ..." A rainbow from my heart to the stars ...." yea its that colorful.. not sure the photo picks up the actual brightness but its done, i used my scrap stash and I'm ready to tackle another one..

    Thanks for looking... And happy Quilting..

    You did a very nice job of using your scraps for log cabin type blocks. I really like the teal hearts, stars and border, also

    Thanks for the compliments.. Im always trying to find ways to use up my scraps, to me a quilt is easier to store ( awaiting a new home) than it is is to keep piles and piles of scraps.... lol..

    And on to my next project !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is one happy quilt! Makes you cheerful just looking at it. That teal fabric was a "master-stroke"...Clever and beautiful. Thanks for sharing and inspiring the rest of us.
