Improv-Style Modern Scrap Quilt

This Modern Scrap Quilt took me just two and half evenings to finish!

Materials Used:

– Ruby Star Scrap Bag – Fabric Remnants – Fabric Strips – Accent Color Scraps – Backing Fabric – Quilt Batting

‘Designing’ my Quilt Top

Rather than looking for a pattern made up of lots of intricately cut and pieced blocks I decided to design my own free-form or improv-style quilt.

On top of the low-volume fabric I just randomly placed some of the Ruby star scraps from my scrap bag.

Piecing the Improv ‘Blocks’

Once each scrap had been attached to a low volume strip, I trimmed and pressed each unit. You just need another straight edge to sew on your next piece of fabric.

The aim at this point is to build and build into larger sections that can be joined to eventually make the quilt top.

Joining Sections to Make Your Quilt Top

To do this you will start by combining some of the smaller units you have made to each other and then trimming off one side that will allow you to join it to another group of units.
