For this week's project I once again turned to my fabric stash. Working from stash makes so very happy. I like to use my fabrics, even the rare and sought after ones that I know I won't be able to replace. I know, I have enough fabric to last this life time, and with new fabrics coming in all the time, it is definitely a use it, or lose it situation. It's a matter of keeping on going and making the quilts ...
Thankfully, it is a task I relish. And scrap quilts are at the top of my list; in this instance by scrap quilt I mean a quilt made from many different fabrics to create an all over "scrappy" look, rather than fabrics that have been rescued from the scrap bin. The fabrics used for this quilt are all from stash, and range from small scale 30's prints to modern large scale designs, Japanese imports, designer quilting cottons and stash basics (dots, checks, stripes etc), in all the colors of the rainbow and more.
The quilt design is simple, alternating a patchwork square with a small quarter log cabin block. Lots of repetitive sewing. Cut, sew, press and repeat. This quilt is more about the fabrics than the design, although I do think that the little log cabins and the white "center" squares give the quilt a fresh, and modern look, as well as a sense of calm.
Ready for basting and quilting.
