When life gives you scraps, make quilts.
When life gives you "many" scraps, make huge quilts.
By the time I get the borders on this quilt it will be a generous king size.
I did not set out to make a king size quilt.
I only wanted to use up some scraps in a basket. It's amazing how far the scraps will go sometimes. This is a great way to use up all those scraps from a variety of different fabrics. The 4 black and white prints pull the whole thing together.
I made wonky log cabin blocks and then cut them in 4 pieces. I sewed 4 different quarters together to create blocks. I added black and white prints to each edge to unify them further.
I DO love this quilt.
When I finished this quilt the scrap bin was still almost as full as when I started.
That is the great mystery that only a quilter can understand.
I have a pretty good idea what I am going to do for the borders. I expect to use a black and white border, a border pieced from more of my scraps and a final wider black and white border.
I've added a puzzle to this post for all of you who love to do the puzzles.
