It’s a proven fact! In my quilting studio, scraps multiply when I’m not looking! But that’s not a problem for me because I LOVE scrap quilts. My first three or four quilts were scrap quilts made from scraps in my mother’s scrap box. I think it is that beginning that has always drawn me to scrap quilts. Sure, I have made beautiful quilts from three or four chosen coordinated fabrics. But it’s the scrap quilts that always draw me in.
I also very much like the use-it-up factor. I’ve always loved using up something until the last bit off use is out of it. It’s so satisfying. When I make a scrap quilt, I know I’ve save money, and I’ve saved space in a landfill somewhere. Both of those ideas appeal to me. I’m being responsible and doing my part to wisely use the resources I already have.
This quilt is great for beginners. It’s wonderful for using up scraps. It’s a fast and easy quilt that you can make for family and friends, or to donate for a service organization.
