My brother Bob is 9 years younger than I, and when he graduated high school and went off to college, I was already married with two boys. I sent him off to Michigan State University with this scrappy, hand quilted quilt, made around 1985.
I made a Spider Web strip pieced quilt – also hand quilted - shortly after the quilt above was completed. My youngest son gravitated towards it, and it ended up being his “snuggle under while watching television” quilt.
He had a habit of chewing on one particular corner… and I’ve left it “as is.” Yes, I could replace the binding. But I like the history that it shows. Call me crazy!
I think the nice thing about quilts made from scraps is that if all the scraps are yours, you know other projects that you’ve used those fabrics in, and it brings back so many memories.
A few more of my scrap quilts can be seen on my blog post from yesterday.
I hope you’ll stop by and take a peek, then go plan your next scrappy quilt!
