a great way to use scraps! Now to get cutting them...
Clairealex , I cut 2.5" squares every time I have a little fabric left over. I put it in a plastic box that I keep near the machine so I can pick up two squares to stitch together as the beginning and ending of my stitching. It is amazing how fast they add up!
I keep meaning to do something like that...sometimes I cut as soon as I have finished cutting and have a small bit left. Usually they got into a box to cut later. Cutting 15 min every day has been suggested too. I do when I think of it (if I don't think of it just before going to bed (my cutting table is in the bedroom). Either one is a great plan. Now to do one of them.
This looks wonderful - love the pattern and especially in a scrappy version
Mymble , I have only seen one "Good Night Irene" that was a planned color scheme. It was lovely and I liked it so welll! All the others I've seen are scrappy and a great way to use up scraps. Clairealex , I usually cut right after I'm done with a piece of fabric and just have bits left over. Periodically, I got through my fabric bins and cut up anything that escaped my earlier "execution". Thanks gals, for your favorable comments.
Beautiful scrappy quilt!
Wow Marsha I really like it and I'm not typically a scrappy kind of person. So bright and fun
I actually have this on my "maybe I could do this scrappy" list as so love when I see others! But it is so hard for me to do...and tolerate the process of scrappy.
True , thank you! I am so in love with it. I'm not always a scrappy quilt lover; in fact, lots of them turn me off but I loved this from the moment I saw it. I think it's because it has a definite design and the scrappiness is secondary to that design. Many scrappy quilts are very random and I think that's what I don't like aobut them. +Hawkan, it is bright and fun; thanks for your comments and it makes me feel good to know I've overcome your scrappy feelings. LOL
This is just beautiful Marsha.
I am usually not a scrappy person either, I do like my order, but this quilt convinced me that there can be some order in scrappiness :-) Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful quilt !!!
libellenart , thank you! Yes, this quilt does prove there can be orderliness mated with scrappiness. Who'd have thought?!
Love your quilt. I asked for 'chicklet' blocks to be made by my bee mates. This would be a great quilt to make with them.
