Pixel Love Scrap Quilt

I talked a little in my last post about my scrap goals for the year: one scrap quilt each month until my scrap bin is (more or less) bare.

In February, I started this quilt with ambitions to finish before Valentine's Day and I finally finished the sewing down the binding last week. Scrap quilt number one took a long time, but it's done!

I did have to cut a little bit from my stash because I have almost no purple scraps, but all of the neutrals and almost all of the pinks came right from the good old scrap bin.

There is a tutorial available for this quilt and I followed the tutorial except I left the borders off of my quilt; I only had one good backing option in my stash and I wouldn't have had quite enough if I had added the borders.

For the quilting, I did a simple crosshatch. When the squares on the quilt are this small, I usually just eyeball where the lines should be and don't bother marking them. They end up a little wibbly wobbly, but nothing too noticeable.

The binding is an Anna Maria Horner voile. I think this is the first time I have done a voile binding and it was a dream to work with. The backing fabric is from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy reprint.

Even though I didn't finish the quilt in time for Valentine's Day, it is ready to go for next year!

Do you want to join along in making some scrap quilts this year? I am working on a post with ideas for different scrap projects and hopefully that will be ready later this week.

  2. This is adorable! I am also trying to work through some of my scraps but some of that gets impeded by all of my WIPs. Oops.

  3. That's an adorable little quilt! I'm sure someone will love it, and to think it came out of the scrap bin! Winning all round. As for your goal of a quilt a month out of scraps? Ambitious, to say the least, unless the quilts are minis or the patterns are basic. That lovely heart quilt was neither.

  6. The voile matches your beautiful quilt perfectly. Question: Is it thin and will it hold up OK and not wear out too soon?
