    compare yellow and red scrappy "sunny lanes" pattern

    I posted an unfinished quilt top of this Sunny Lanes quilt pattern from Quilters Cache. I mentioned I was doing it in red and blue as well. Since my last post of this, I added the borders.

    I finished up the red one and am currently working on the blue one. I love how they are turning out. I am so trying to use up scraps which seem to just multiply. These really aren't making a dent in the scrap bags. OK...well, a small dent.

    Anyone, once again, in case anyone wants the pattern, it is an "easy" one but takes a while due to the number of pieces and is located at http://www.quilterscache.com/S/SunnyLanesBlock.html.

    Enjoy.

    beautiful ... and a perfect way to use scraps. I especially like how the borders add definition. Looking forward to seeing the blue one.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    those are wonderful! i love scrap quilts
    i too am trying to (make a dent) in my stash and am in the process of my second scrap quilt from my stash-
    you are right scraps multiply faster than bunnies! i come home with one piece of fabric- use it for it's intended purpose and wind up with anywhere between 6 & 15(average-sometimes less-sometimes more) new pieces to put away
    crazy isn't it?

    you found a great pattern to use up some of those scraps-and your color combinations are wonderful!

    Beautifully done! I love both of them but I'm partial to the yellow. Quilterscache is a fun site. I never knew there were so many different blocks. I made a Hunters Star using their pattern.

    Love both of them, although the red is my favorite. The pattern is an excellent one for scraps

    This is such a pretty pattern and I love how you interpreted it. Your yellow quilt makes me think of sunshine on a cloudy day and the red one is absolutely striking. I had been thinking about trying this pattern in flannelette for a snuggly for the GK's. After seeing yours, I definitely must!

    wow! the solids really pull all those scraps together. I don't think I could pick a favorite. Both are so lovable.

    Love both of quilts! I saw your post for the yellow one without the borders. I was hoping you would post it again with the borders on. Thank you for the pattern too, I have bunch of scraps to use up I have to give this a try.

    Such great scrappies. I love how you are working your way through the scraps. Just a quick question... How much yardage of the red or yellow does it take ?

    I really don't know...since with the yellow I was using a piece and having to cut out the green design on it--and the red, I was using scraps of various solid reds I could find. So, the blue one, I have mostly cut out, it is taking about 2 yards, I think, for this size, which is made up of 35 blocks layout of 5x7 (12" blocks). But, unfortunately, I don't know for sure, since I'm using up "what I have" and not really buying anything for these. I did pull out some more blue as I didn't have enough of my originally planned blue to make it the size I want. So, I'd guess between 2-3 yards for the way I have done it with the border, etc.

    At first I was afraid to mix the reds up as I didn't have enough of one red to finish it. Then, I kept digging and found some 12" blocks of solid reds, and cut them into the sizes I needed for the border (I used 1.5" strips bordering 2" blocks). So, my reds are mixed, but I figured, "it's a scrappy quilt, after all" and Bonnie Hunter uses all kinds of blues and greens, etc. when making a color coordinated scrappy. Since she seems to be the default expert on scrappy on the net, I figured, "if she can, I can too!".
