3 things I love about this quilt

January 6, 2012

Volume scrap quilt flimsy, from Scrap Republic by Emily Cier.

1. I love the way the colors cascade through this quilt. I followed the pattern exactly, because that’s who I am. I suspect you could play a bit with the colors and it would still look wonderful.

2. I love that I used only scraps to make this quilt. And little bits at that. In the process my scrap buckets were organized (at least by color) and I’m completely ready to tackle another scrap project.

3. I loved the process of making this quilt. There was no need to over-analyze the color choices and placement, and the piecing was more or less improvisational. It was gratifying to see how the individual color strips came together so beautifully (thanks Emily!)

What are you doing with your scraps this year? (You might want to check out the Scrap Attack that’s happening over at Stitched in Color for more inspiration.)
