Another Quilt from Scraps

I'm still being very unproductive, with work and other stuff I'm not getting anything fun done so I thought I'll show you another one I made last year.

This was made from scraps left over from my Loony Limerick Ladies Quilt and I used them up in this Quilt which of course doesn't have a name. Its about 40 x 40 inches.

This cream osnaburg (I think that is what it is called) was the only solid I had and I like the way it went, it has a rusticy feel to it. I just sewed the little pieces together and the bigger pieces and then layed them out in a fairly similar way to make it look like I had actually designed it!!!

I did random straight line quilting all over which went quite wobbly in some places but when its on the wall its not very noticeable.

The binding is a batik that I used on the back of the Loony Limerick Ladies quilt and it looks like a solid, machine stitched as usual!

Even though they aren't my favourite colourway, I was really pleased with how it came out and it is hanging up on a bedroom wall.

I love the colours, and I love that it looks all planned out even though it is random. Fabulous quilt!

Oh wow that is gorgeous, I love the wobbly line quilting - I am doing it on my current quilt (!), I think it makes the whole thing feel real and not factory made - love love love this one!

I love the quilting!

There's something really satisfying about making a quilt from scraps isnt there?

Just goes to prove that there is no such thing as a useless scrap of fabric! It is gorgeous.
