Hey Quilty Friends! What do quilters do when they don't want to store or save scrap fabrics? The answer is simple, make another quilt from the scraps. In order to make another quilt from the Halloween prints I needed to pull more Halloween-ish fabrics for the borders and binding.
I can see how this could become a scrap quilt rabbit hole because there will be more scraps produced from the fabrics I pulled for the borders and binding in the picture above. On my cutting table is a basket of white background fabric scraps, they will be worked it into the new scrap quilt.
And let's not forget the mountain of black scraps from the background of the five Lone Star Quilts made over the last year. A little of the solid black will be used in this quilt.
The cutting for this quilt is finished and there's still scraps!
They may be used to make a scrappy quilt backing or table runner.
The last three Halloween quilts and pillows were bound with this black striped fabric. I'll be using it for the sashing in the current quilt. The black squares will be the cornerstones.
Here's the plan but things can change, especially the sashing. I may turn the stripes vertical, it all depends on how hard it is to cut them horizontal. I love the look of them horizontal but we all know how fabrics can get wonky when printed and ironed.
Right now it's pedal to the metal time! I'd like to have this girl finished in a week or less.
Until next time...
I hope you find time to stitch up something sweet!
