Scrappy Quilt

Last year at the craft cabin, me Tash and Burnice pooled all our fabric scraps together and shared them out, with the intention of making a scrappy quilt each. We decided to use this book by the ‘queen’ of scrappy quilts, Amanda Jane Nyberg.  She blogs at Crazy Mom Quilts.  I do recommend you go over and have a peek at what she makes with scraps!  No scrap is too small!

I have been sewing mine bit by bit as and when I feel like it, making a few 5” blocks every now and then.  I have had a bit of a blitz lately and sewn a whole load more.  Here’s what my table looks like:

And here’s the blocks I have made so far, including 5 large 9.5” blocks laid out on the hall floor.  I guess it is about lap size at the moment, but I will keep going to make it quite large.

Which colours should I concentrate on next?

Oh wow! This is going to be an heirloom ... How about some more yellow down the left for balance, and some more green on all four sides?
