Scrappy Saturday


When I was visiting my friend Deanna earlier this month, she showed us a gorgeous scrap quilt that had won a 1st place ribbon at the fair. I fell in love immediately and started planning to make a similar one in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge style. The original pattern was called "When this you see" by Lydia Quigley of The Rabbit Factory. I searched for the pattern on the internet but couldn't find it.



It is a 2 block quilt, with one block being a 25 patch made from scraps, and the second block being a framed sawtooth star. Deanna made her version totally scrappy, and I think mine will be controlled scrappy.



This is the tester 3"  sawtooth star block made in blue/blueish for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour of the month. So cute!





This is a practice scrappy 25 patch block. I don't know how many blocks I'll make each month or where this quilt is going yet - it's a fresh idea, still germinating.

That's a beautiful quilt! Perfect for scrappy inspiration. I've seen a similar design with the place where your stars being blank white space. I like the stars there! Have fun playing with that design!

Wedding Dress Blue quilting blog has a tutorial for this pattern. She called it Irish Stars and had a quilt along a few years ago. I made it and I love the quilt.

Looking forward to seeing how your controlled version evolves. Great pattern for scraps.

Your star block is so cute! The Irish Star from The Wedding Dress Blue has been on my list for a very long time. It would be fun to make this in 2023 along with you. Do you mind if I do? I will use Wedding Dress Blue's pattern to make the stars. It will be different from yours also because I'll make mine a scrappy zero-control type of quilt. It'll be fun. I just hope I'll be able to keep up with you. What do you say? ;^)

That’s an awesome scrap-busting quilt. And I’m sure your controlled color version will be amazing. Like the others, I want to make one too! It’s too bad we all need to sleep, eh?

It was fun to make this quilt and it used up lots of scraps but I still have many scraps left to use! Kathy your blues look so pretty and soft. It was a pattern I bought a while ago and a friend wanted to do a scrappy leader and ender quilt...I picked this one for her and I to do together. My top is done but she hasn't started yet. She has a box of batik scraps that she will be using.
