I started piecing this quilt years ago. I collected fabric from every where I went. I wanted the fabrics to look vintage. This was my second quilt that I quilted on my Longarm machine. Although my fabric tastes have changed from when I started this quilt I love it now it is quilted.

The orange print was given as “Fabric Challenge” in my local guild. It started as just a table topper using only the hex’s. Then grew as I added the flying geese, EQ7 program, as so on. Love using up scraps making hexagons as they can be used in so many ways. And fun to make too.

Using a pattern from a 2010 magazine, I cut up all my Christmas stash into 11/2 and 2 1/2 inches. I now have two beautiful quilts to use as gifts. I used everything up and pieced the leftovers into strips to add to my backs. So happy to have found a place where they all look great together.

|Color Block Scraps
This quilt was born out of my frustration with a growing pile of scraps. It was designed as I went along. Initially I was just organizing the scraps by color. It has a cozy fleece on the back and the quilting is free motion meandering.

Most of the 9-patch blocks were made by other members of the Ninigret Quiltes and swapped at meetings. I needed to make 10 additional blocks to complete the design. The layout was inspired by the Niner pattern by Thimble Blossoms. I plan to use up leftover binding after it is quilted.

|Scrap Control 1
This quilt started very innocently with someone telling me about using used dryer sheets as a foundation for scrap quilts. I googled this concept and this is how I upcycled used dryer sheets and a lot of 1 1/2″ and smaller wide strings. It has been a fun and addictive work in process.

|Toddler String Quilt
Yukon Territory, Canada
This is a small “Because You Matter” quilt, the the first of 3 quilts made by request for three young brothers in foster care. The social worker requested small “blankie” sized quilts, so as this one was for a 2-year-old, I made it especially small. I used string scraps from my scrap bin.

|What Would Kaffe Do?
By: Brita Pingry,
I pulled equal numbers of Kaffe Fassett-style fabrics and neutral tone-on-tone fabrics to make this pattern. However, it looked pretty boring. So I tossed the tone-on-tones, and substituted some of Kaffe’s neutrals, or rather, less-than-in-your-face fabrics, and it turned out exciting!
