Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2017 ~ Scrappy Rectangles

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!

  4. One word….stunning! And a question…Just out of curiosity, how many rectangles did you use? Karen

  5. 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 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!

    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.

  20. Ariane says:

    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.
