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!

    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.

    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.
