Scrap quilting

I found a very tiny quilt along at Heartspun Quilts.  It is just 5 weeks long and the blocks are small but fun to put together.

I am using leftovers from a charm pack I've had in my stash for awhile.  The line is called Park Avenue and I remember buying it several years ago, used a few squares but then never really did anything with it.  I think it has just the right colors for this mini.

The final block measures 4 1/2 inches.  The first block was some geese

For the 2nd block, Pam offered a unique way to construct these tiny units as well - go take a look here.

Now back to the blog post title.  I really, really do want to make a true scrap fabric quilt someday but the first vision I have for these various scrap quilt a longs is always to stay within a fabric line.  Crazy, isn't it?

All over blogland, people seem to be making scrappy around the world quilts - you can find the fun instructions of the scrappy trip around the world on Bonnie Hunter's blog.  So, I had to give it a try.   I'm using the other half of my batik pack leftover from my Tetris quilt.  I am going to make this wall hanging size ... but see?  Can't go scrappy.   

Happy Stitching!


  1. I've also seen the Scrappy trip quilts around but I really don't like them. Now yours, which isn't scrappy, I love!

  2. I think scrap quilt are the hardest ones to make. when they are done they are gorgeous. but we seem to fret over placement. good luck!

  3. I have never done a scrap quilt, put I do plan to get some of my scraps together a try one. Love what you have done.

  4. Wow. Those are tiny blocks. Cute, too. I love your bright, colorful scrappy trip around the world.
    Those scrappy blocks are taking blogging land by storm. They make beautiful scrappy quilts. I want to make some blocks.
