    Basket of Scraps

    This quilt is called basket of scraps from Fat Quarter Shop. This is the first two row's, have the third done just have to add, and than the border's. The background fabric on this one was a night mare, boy did it keep fraying. Thanks for looking.

    It's so good to see your quilt in progress. I'm almost half finished with mine and out of frustration had to put it away for awhile. You inspire me to get mine out and get it finished. I agree with you, the background fabric frays horribly.

    Lovely work. Those fabrics are terrific together. I've had fabric fray like crazy recently, too. Wonder what's up with that? Guess it could be a new thread.

    Thanks everyone, I was surprised how much it frayed, this is a BOM by Fat Quarter Shop and I love doing there's. There always giving plenty of fabric, so it you have a small opps, you can fix it. This is the first time ever with so much fraying. I hope you get back to yours's as well, not looking forward to border, all those squares.

    Love this quilt!! Really am attracted to the large squares and the smaller ones. I like the way they fit together. Love the fabric choices.

    What a great quilt! I love the Aunt Grace type fabrics and this is a great pattern to use with them.
