The Carly Quilt - Scrappy Version

You guys know I love scrap quilts and that I always have an excess of scraps. When I was planning out samples for the Carly Quilt Pattern, I knew I wanted to make a scrappy version.

Last year I went through my scrap bins and them down into some different squares (2", 2.5", 3", 3.5", etc.) so that they would be ready to go when I wanted to make a scrap project. This made is so much faster to put a scrap quilt together and this project really put a dent in my scrap bin.

It is amazing how different the scrappy version looks!

Plus I love that this quilt uses a lot of low volume/light solid colors because I always end up with lots of scraps like this in my bin because of leftover background fabric pieces.

For the backing fabric, I used a 108" wide Ruby Star Society print. Have you tried these? They are sateen so they have a really smooth feel to them. It makes a very soft quilt back!

Normally, I like to pick a binding fabric that frames the quilt and then usually leads to a solid black, navy, or gray, but I went in a different direction for this quilt. I wanted something that would blend well with the backing fabric but interfere with the scrappiness of the front. This light pink was perfect!

I definitely see another scrappy Carly Quilt in my future. If you would like to make your own scrap version, head over to the shop to pick up a copy.
