Blogger's Quilt Festival - Scrappy

A scrappy collection of yellows and blues

Fall 2014 BQF ButtonI am entering the Blogger's Quilt Festival at  Amy's Creative Side.   One of the categories is a scrappy quilt, and I want to share the scrappy blue and yellow quilt I made for my mother earlier this year.  You can read and see more about this quilt here.
     I believe I used about 40 different fabrics in this quilt, all left over from earlier projects.

     I also pieced together the back with leftovers from an earlier quilt project.   I love a good scrappy finished piece.

Thanks for looking!
Take care,


  1. Yellow and blue is such a classic and beautiful combo! You did a beautiful job on this. I especially love the pieced back-- that is awesome!

    1. Thanks. It was a nice way to use up some leftover blocks! (and I love the IKEA numbers fabric)

  2. I can't believe you only have 2 comments! This is a lovely quilt. the colours work so well together and it is great to hear that you truly are using up scraps left over from other quilts. It looks beautifully made.

  3. Love the quilt. The colors are so soothing. Your string blocks are so neatly matched. The back is pretty neat, too!
