scraps from yesterday's post, this is the scrap quilt that my little quilt group ("the Sew 'n Sews") has been working on for the Mennonite Relief sale and quilt auction in the spring.
This quilt was originally inspired by "Crazy Mom's" quilt on this blog post. We thought it would be a great design that could accommodate 4 different 1/4" seam measurements :)
And we were right...the rows sewed together quite well with a minimum of fudging and stretching!
This quilt top is already bigger than my design wall (you can see the corners flopping over at the top) and we are now deciding if we want to add borders to it or not.
It is a quite an interesting quilt to look at, containing the bright scraps from the stashes of 4 quite divergent stashes. Some of the blocks are almost like an "I Spy" quilt with so many things that a child would enjoy looking at...a castle, fairies, cats, etc.
I made up these fabrics kit to start from, and each quilter added their own ingredients/scraps from their stash.
Any ideas about the borders???
