    Focus Fabric from a Scrub

    This is a "sew and flip" quilt made with a "quilt as you go" method.

    I found the Snoopy focus fabric as a scrub at a garage sale. I had not seen that print anywhere else. My brother used to draw Snoopy as the Red Baron cartoons so many years ago when we were growing up on the farm. I am hoping that one of his 3 married kids (all over 30 years old) will announce a pregnancy this year, so it can go to the new baby. If that doesn't happen (I am not holding my breath), it will go to the annual Bible Camp charity quilt auction next summer.

    What a great idea for that type of fabric! New idea for another quilt I want to make. Thank you for sharing.

    very cute!
    Were the scrubs 100% cotton?
    I've thought of using scrubs before, but they weren't all cotton. So, I wasn't sure if it would work in a quilt or not
    In my quilt lab!

    Yes, this scrub had a tag, and it was 100% cotton. For something like sew and flip that uses a stabilizer, I think a blend if it was predominately cotton would probably work ok.

    Can someone please tell me what "a scrub" is.

    Cute quilt. Love the way Snoopy looks like he is in a kennel in some of the blocks.

    Busy Fingers,

    A scrub is what nurses and doctors wear, I think originally for surgery (as in "scrub up"). A person thinks of them as green in color, but a lot of the medical people who work with children wear scrubs (uniforms) that are made of prints that would appeal to children. Dental workers even have cute tops with toothbrushes and teeth or toothy smiles.

    It is so cute! Wonderful idea for using scrub fabric. I have bought scrubs at a thrift store and got some nice fabric from them.

    Use a lot of used scrubs here, we sell them and when they have hung on the rack for awhile, it becomes quilting fodder. Lot of real neat prints you won't find at the fabric stores. Lot of our charity kids quilts are made with scrubs, they are made to match tops and bottoms so you automaticlly have different material for the quilts. And pretty sturdy material too.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!
