Scrappy Quilts in traditional colors


Do you have scraps in a basket? I am always looking for ideas to use up my stash of scraps.


I love scrappy quilts...to make for myself and to quilt for customers. This beautiful scrap quilt was pieced by Sally. We decided to go with the panto called Peacock Palm in a taupe color thread.


Interesting border.


Backing of the quilt.


The next scrappy quilt was pieced by Julie. The Curly Q panto in a tan color thread is a good option for scrappy quilts.


I love all these 9 patch blocks...they are perfect for all those scraps in a basket.


Happy Quilting!

Scrappy quilts are wonderful and these are no exception. I especially like the first one where the blocks are set on point.

I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I can turn my scraps into something nice. The quilts you showed here certainly did a good job of that and your quilting is, of course, wonderful.

Millie! I love this border that Sally chose. I love this quilt as a matter of fact and as always, I have to say it, you work so well with your customers to pick out "just the right" quilting and thread. I think you're right with tan or taupe thread. It does a nice job of "sinking into" the quilt.

I love those 9 patch blocks that Julie did with the sashing and cornerstones. Very cute and fun. ...and Millie - that particular panto - Curly Q - that COMPLETELY WORKS!!!!!

Gosh it's so much fun at your place. The only thing missing is an updated picture of my buddy Max. ;)

Hi Millie, Scrap quilts are one of my favorite also, espcially vintage ones. I've been using my scraps for strip quilts lately.
