Finished Quilt!


Did you remember that I have been trying to finish my Sister's Scrap Challenge this month? I was successful and here is the finished quilt! I used only the scraps in the envelope that was sent to me and the blue background fabric. The scraps were sewn using a confetti piecing method (learned from Lady Harvatine) and then the framed scraps were joined together in an improv kind of way.


Here is a photo from the back to show the wavy  machine quilting on the diagonal, with random loops.

I like how it looks like waves in the ocean, hence the quilt was named "Scraps Swimming in the Sea".


The finished size is 52.5" x 57.5" and this will be donated to my guild's comfort quilt project.

Good title - it does look like flotsam and jetsam. The combo of scraps and the blue make a very pretty quilt.

I know this wasn't one of your favorite quilts, but I'm glad to see you stuck with it and finished it up. Now you can move on to something you'll really enjoy.

Isn't it interesting that even "impromptu" still takes a little bit of artistry! YOU got it!
