Scattered Origins

The other day I received a email from someone asking if a Layer Cake could be used with my Scattered pattern. I emailed back and said I thought so, it would just have a different look with all of the different fabrics. That was enough to make me look in my stash for a Layer Cake and try out the pattern. It will work.

Several years ago I bought Origins by Basic Grey as a layer cake, then a jelly roll and….even some yardage. I did use a little bit of it when I made my Tinker Tote, now it is time to use of the rest of it.

Did the Scattered quilt above look a little small? It is actually a mini that I experimented with after I made sure the quilt could be made out of a layer cake.

If you have the Scattered pattern and would like to use a layer cake, cut your largest squares first. I have all the blocks started for my regular size Scattered… to move on to the next step.


Iggy seems to like the miniature Scattered……it seems a perfect color for him

  1. I love your quilt top, Connie! Even though you used dark brown, it looks bright and cheerful. There's a feeling of happiness in this mix of fabric that I love. 🙂

  2. I just love that pattern. It looks great with those fabrics too.

    (I thought I'd better come out of hiding to let you see I'm still alive haha)

  3. Scattered is how I feel these days. If only I looked as good as Iggy! Your work is amazing dear. This is a beautiful quilt.

  4. I have to say that when I saw this quilt it reminded me of the kitchen floor my mom had in the 70s. That is not to say I don't love it because I do. I actually would love to complete this in black, white and bright blue fabrics. Future thoughts.

  5. Beautiful. I have some Christmas fabrics pulled to make this pattern but promised myself I can't start it until I finish one more UFO.
