All the Rectangles Scrap Quilt

It is easy to forget because sometimes scrap quilts can be a little tedious to make, but they are seriously so much fun! I have been working on this quilt on and off for the past few weeks and I just soaked up every minute.

There is something about sorting through little pieces of old projects and then sewing them back together into something new. This one in particular was felt magical because the end result has a glow-y, ethereal effect (I think it is because of all of the pink?).

My kids love this one too and it went to regular rotation on the couch as soon as I finished and now my 3 year old has stolen it for his bed.

Of course one of the great things about scrap quilts is that if you spill something on it, you will never notice. But my kids particularly like finding little pieces of their quilts hiding in all of those fabrics.

I did diamond crosshatch quilting on this one which is one of my favorite things. Since the squares were relatively small, I didn't mark the lines and just eyeballed it so there are some wobbles in there but I kind of like it that way.

If you want to make your own version of this quilt, I did several stories on my Instagram account and they are saved in my highlights. This is a great way to use up binding scraps.

The backing fabric is an Anna Maria Horner flannel (so soft!) that I have had in my stash for a while and the binding is Designer Essentials solid in black.

    1. This is a great option because it uses up small pieces and you don't have to have a particular color. Just make it your own with what you have!

  4. Love it! What was your process in designing it? Most scrap quilts seem to have a grab-and-sew method, but your placement is obviously much more intentional. Did you lay out each scrap on a design board before sewing?

    1. There is more detail in my Instagram highlights, but I separated them into piles based on value and then sewed them into pairs before I laid them all out.
