scrap…rhymes with crap. scrap week! quilt

if you have read my blog before…you will know that i’m a hoarder….
and fabric scraps are no exception….
so much in fact that i had to devote a whole week of fun tutorials to use up your fabric remains!!!!
today we start with a fun scrappy quilt!
Back many moons ago when I was packing up my house I ran across a shoe box of little scrap fabric. too small to really do anything with…and i started sorting them by color…and slowly and surely the rainbow quilt was sewn….

crafting isn’t a clean hobby…
I laid out all the colors together and sewed all the colors together….then sewed the strips of colors together.
I cleaned up the edges
and added a white border.
I couldn’t find the exact kind of print for the back of it…so i created my own ..I got white fabric and made a triangle stamp and used fabric paint to create my print…

and while i was waiting for the purple to dry my daughter walked across it…so there are little purple smudges across it. #lifeofamom then just added some polka dot binding! scrap fabric quilt
it’s super fun…no real rhyme or reason. you can see i didn’t try to match up the squares..which makes it really easy!
