Scrap Binded Scrappy Quilt

I got the idea for this Scrappy Quilt when I was learning how to bind my first quilt.

It got me thinking that might be a fun way to make a larger strip on a quilt top.

I had some colourful remnants and bolt ends from ebay purchases and some other projects.

Scrappy Strips

I had all the triangles I’d cut off when making the 45 degree joinings. And so of course I wanted to use them all up!

Scrappy Quilt Back


If I’m honest, the quilt turned out thinner than I thought it would be.

Basting Errors

I opted for a light aqua colour on top and white for the bobbin.

Thread Choice

I made a quilt label to cover the biggest exposed corner and hand sewed it down along with another white strip of fabric.

Covering up Mistakes

The long and short of it is that I made far too much work for myself and ended up really over-quilting this.
