Today I am sharing with you my second entry into the BQF, my Scrappy Rectangles quilt. I am entering it into the Scrappy Quilt Category.
I got the idea for this quilt from another blogger, Lynn, over at Klein Meisje Quilts. It was a perfect leader/ender project for using up scraps.
I cut each of my rectangles at 2 by 3 1/2 inches. My quilt finished at around 96 inches square. It doesn’t look square in this next photo, but it is!
The only scraps I didn’t use were civil war repros. Everything else went in:
Here’s a shot showing my wide binding and the backing fabric.
The pantograph I used for the quilting is called Woven Wind and it is available from Urban Elementz. I just love the texture it gives!
To date, this is my second most re-pinned quilt on Pinterest at well over 6,000 repins! It’s living on the guest bed for now.
And that’s a wrap! Be sure and check out all the other lovely quilts entered into the BQF. You can find links to all the categories here.
Have a great day!
Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation
I have been inspired to make one too. Sorting scaps now
You have inspired me and I’m cutting one with 2.5 x 3.5 rectangles
Ohhhh, such scrappy delight. It looks wonderful, Katy!
One word….stunning! And a question…Just out of curiosity, how many rectangles did you use? Karen
What’s not to love! Good luck at the festival! My test for a great scrap quilt is wanting to be able to wrap it around me. Simple yet well balanced and the quilting is just the perfect choice! Good luck
I love that almost everything went into your beautiful quilt!
I love this quilt Katy – it makes me really smile!!
I saw another one of these quilts that you posted a while ago, and started making one too – I chose a brighter turquoise / teal Kona for the background. Thanks for the inspiration!
What a fun quilt.
Love this quilt! Great use of your fabrics.:)
Simple quilt patterns can be so striking–this one, in particular, with all those beautiful scraps!
You know I love this …a lot of scrappy goodness in this one!! It makes me smile!!
Now following you on Bloglovin. Looking forward to future creations! Also, I pinned this quilt to my scrap quilt board. It’s inspirational! Also, I want to show my longarmer this panto; definitely want to give it a try on a future quilt!
Oh I love this one!!! Its on my bucket list ( to copy you!!)
Great choice for the festival. So much scrappy goodness!
Who doesn’t love a scrap quilt? Sensational!
I really love this quilt! Scrap quilts are my favorite.
I like how vintage meets modern in this quilt. It’s quite charming.
Amazing quilter you are. You get so much sewing down. I’m slower and wish I could sew better. I have a sewing machine question. Would you ever buy a fast sewing machine like a Juki straight stitch? They sew up to 1500 speeds. I don’t sew that fast but many quilters have them. What is your opinion? Thank you.
This quilt is gorgeous!! I love scrappy quilts. I think I need to add this pattern to my list of need to make. My scraps bins seem to keep growing.
I love this quilt too!!! It’s so simple but sweet. Great job!!
