I can't believe it's time! Over the next several days, quilters across the web will be posting their scrappy quilt projects at Stitched in Color's Festival of Scrappiness in a happy conclusion to the Scrap Attack Quilt-Along.
If you've been following along here, I've been working on a scrappy postage stamp quilt for the quilt-along (my very first!). A few weeks ago I realized that as much as I wanted to enter that quilt into the Festival of Scrappiness, there was no way I was going to finish stitching up all of those tiny squares and sew all the blocks together to make a top in time for the festival.
So, I spent a week working on two scrappy baby quilt tops (that I was planning to make anyway) to use as my entries instead.
All of the scraps were cut to 6" lengths and 2, 3, or 4" widths. After a laying everything out, I stitched them all together in order by size... first smallest to largest then back to smallest again, repeating the pattern several times to get the quilt width I was after. I was able to get four rows out of the scraps, but that wasn't quite enough for a quilt so I found a remnant of white laying in my bin to pull it all together.
