That is one of my favorite sayings! I love scrap quilts and I love making them. Almost all of my quilts are scrap quilts. Normally I do not buy much in yardage I buy fat quarters. As I cut into them for quilts the little bits get saved to make quilts from those leftover little bits.
Here are just some of my scrap quilts, I have lost track of how many I have!
A little pineapple square wall hanging I am currently working on – applique in progress – will be on all four sides.
Star Crazy in the process of hand quilting – half way done!
Twisted Stars, on the bed – all of the stars were made from scraps
Double Wedding Ring with applique border – all scraps once again.
Table Topper made with 2 1/2 x 5 inch scraps
A Star Charm Quilt – no two pieces are alike.
All you need to make Scrap Quilts is an assortment of scraps and some background fabric. Some even use scraps for the background. One of my favorite methods is to collect up a lot white on whites – beige on white, white on beige – you get the picture – combine them for the background and you have a totally scrappy look.
