A Quilt Made Of Scraps With Scrappy Binding 

Learn all the easy ways to make a quilt from scraps with scrappy binding.

Scrappy Strips

My basic idea was to have different height strips of my colored fabrics attached at that 45 degree angle like a quilt binding and to have each colored strip framed by a white/off white background.

I made blocks of completely different sizes just based on the scraps I had left and then set them in a sort of a frame (ish) pattern on the back of the quilt.

Scrappy Quilt Back


I just seemed to get small little folds in various places even thought I did try to follow the instructions and start from the middle and work my way out.

Basting Errors

I briefly considered changing thread depending on which color fabric I was quilting on but then I realized that would make a fairly strange multicolored mess on the back.

Thread Choice

When I went to quilt my scrappy quilt, I somehow got the bottom corner of the backing sort of squished up and therefore quilted down in the wrong place!

Covering up Mistakes

So instead I made a quilt label to cover the biggest exposed corner and hand sewed it down along with another white strip of fabric to cover the small area at the bottom that was also exposed.
