Finished Scraps Quilt

It's not often that I get to write about a finished project, especially one that has taken me so many months like a quilt and then delete the whole post accidentally whist trying to link it to a linky party. I am pretty new to the whole linky party idea but I do get so many ideas from my time spent perusing other people's blogs that I thought it might be nice to give a little back.


I loved making this quilt and I think the main reason is because it is for my lovely Josie. Every scrap that I have used has been part of another project or came from a bag of scraps that we picked up at a quilt exhibition last summer.


Every tiny bit is a memory and the squares I embroidered along the top and bottom are moments captured in time; Josie's hand print from when I started the project, the hop scotch that is chalked on our path and washed of by the rain and even the sandcastle that I did at the beach.


So it is with great thanks that Ican link to the inspiration for the quilt here, look back at the start of the project here and the progress here.

And finally I can link to the linky party

  1. satisfying indeed to finish something and this is a lovely quilt. It looks like you appliqued onto a plain background. I'm so nervous about quilting but this is a technique even I might be able to manage.

  2. You should really give quilting a go, it doesn't really matter if it doesn't turn out perfectly and you learn as you go. I did applique on to plain squares and then sewed it all together. The links in the post should explain everything but feel free to ask me any questions. I've learned everything about quilts just by trying and asking. I have now made three.
