Scrappy Courthouse Steps
2 Attachment(s)
I’m sure many of you can relate … I’ve had several large Rubbermaid bins full of scraps from other projects, I have my regular stash too, but the fabric in the bins were just little scraps, mostly 1.5” - 2.5” strips. Except for the white fabric, this Courthouse Steps quilt was made entirely of those scraps, plus the back too! Plus, I have boxes of leftover bits of batting, so I pieced some of the batting together for this quilt. I’m so proud that I used materials that my husband kept saying for years to just throw away! Quilt measures 64” x 75”.

Great use of scrapes.

That quilt is wonderful. The White sure gives it a pop against all those dark scraps. You really made great use of a lot of scrap strips. It looks so ( cozy)

Beautiful use of your "leftovers". I am impressed that you have scraps that blend together so well.

Take a bow! You win a blue ribbon for being a Scrap Queen! Thanks for showing us your lovely quilt!

Your colors play well together. Do you keep your color family of scraps together in a tub? I have the whole color wheel in my tub...from lime green to civil war prints...I couldn't imagine how that would look. Thank you for sharing a picture Scrap Queen!

Wow. I'm not usually a fan of scrappy quilts but I love yours. That back is fantastic.

juliasb 07-18-2020 04:49 AM

Beautiful quilt! I love scrappy quilts and this is not exception. Your courthouse steps are perfect use of these steps. Thanks for sharing.

Great quilt! I love what you did and the white just makes it pop!

Lovely rich colors! I'm sure your hubby will think twice before suggesting throwing out scraps again! https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images...es/biggrin.png

What fun! I am always so proud when I get to use scraps but I have never come up with a quilt that size and gorgeous.
I am really envious and doggone it I think I will try another scrappy quilt. You have really inspired me. Thank you!

oksewglad 07-18-2020 05:08 PM

A delightful, lovely quilt; and others would have thrown the scraps away! I can relate. I'm working with some 1 1/2 and 2 inch strips now in 2 different quilts. I'm anxious to get them finished.

audsgirl 07-18-2020 08:33 PM

First of all, this is a terrific quilt! And good for you for using your scraps. That must be very satisfying. Well done!


Waal 07-19-2020 05:04 AM

Beautiful quilt! They are my colors, and I love how you put it all together. I'm a scrappy quilter, too, but never seem to use all those scraps. Great job!

BonnieJP 07-19-2020 06:21 AM

Gorgeous quilt. I love it.

Taughtby Grandma 07-19-2020 08:45 AM

Very interesting pattern. I've made some courthouse steps but it's been a while. I like the way you used the white to set it off. Nice job!

Cam's gram 07-19-2020 10:31 AM

Impressive, especially since you used scraps for it!

Karamarie 07-19-2020 12:24 PM

That is very much in colors like a quilt I recently made. My favorite colors. My pix just wouldn't post for me. Lovely job

osewme 07-19-2020 01:00 PM

That's a real beauty of a quilt. Love the warm colors. Did you have a pattern? I've not seen courthouse steps like that with the white in it. It really is beautiful.

LeeAnn 07-19-2020 05:44 PM

Very nice! I love how the white makes it pop!

MicheleC 07-19-2020 10:29 PM

What a way to use up your scraps! That looks like a great reversible quilt to me. Nice job!

Evy 07-20-2020 01:58 AM

I also would like the pattern. It's a beautiful quilt.
