Finished Scrap Quilts

Here are two finished scrap quilts for our community’s new hospice unit. Our church quilting group committed to make ten quilts. I think we may have enough scraps to make 20!

Rather than groaning that I had to piece the back, I had fun using left over scraps to create a new design element

I went a bit overboard on the quilting for the yellow string quilt which will go to our hospital's neo-natal unit. I used some of my odds and ends of variegated thread to finish it.

I had to piece the back on this one as well. I think I hear the modern quilt movement calling my name.

  1. They are lovely quilts, great use of scraps. I can imagine them, 20 years from now, a bit frayed at the edges, soft as flannel and well loved.

  2. All turned out beautifully. And in the first one, I can see what you meant in an earlier post about placement of the colors/values in the Trip blocks. A good visual. I've cut some strips and hope to get started on one of these... after a few others get moved to their next stages! Ha.
