Jan. 31, 2008 – Finally Finished!

This quilt was intended to be part of my Butterfly Dance book, but never made the cut. I’ve finally finished quilting it. I called it my “scrap buster” quilt because the only fabric purchased was the black and purple batik used in the 4″ borders. To make the 6″ stars in this quilt, I went through my scraps and organized the pieces by color. Then I cut the  pieces out from “blendy” scraps. I did not care if the points were all the same fabric as long as they were similar in color and hue. It is a little hard to see in this photo but very few stars have the same fabric for all eight points. When the stars were finished, I used the leftover scraps to crazy piece 6″ squares for the outer border. I then splashed a few butterflies onto the quilt top just for fun. It is very cold and snowing today so it was a good day to clear up an old project.
I plan to look through my UFOs and see what else I can finish up…. I may post another photo because then I’ll have to finish it!

    Did you know that the scraps breed when you're not looking? You better get them used up!

  4. Love it! The dark borders really pull it together. I may have try a scrappy quilt to use some of my leftovers. I can't throw anything away. I even save 1/4 inch strips to knit with!
