Two New Scrap Projects

Yesterday I did a review on the book Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts and I couldn’t resist starting a couple new quilts. There was so many neat designs in the book but these two quilts looked perfect for my scraps. Do I need more quilts…..more projects……no, but that has never stopped me before! These may take some time to make as they will be my “in-betweeners”. Both quilts are in their own box so I can pull one of them out at a moments notice whenever I want a break from my current quilt.

The first one is called Trail Marker designed by Ashley Newcomb.

I am going to use a combination of batiks and neutral prints in my stash. Since this is a long term project I printed out a photo of the quilt and information that will be kept with the pieces.Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts
The blocks are very easy to make.

I have a ways to go on this quilt, I have a lot of brown batiks so I think I will make all of my blocks with browns and neutrals.Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts

Update: I ended up finishing my project using the Trail Marker pattern and made a table runner with it, be sure and check it out!

When I saw Barbed Wire by Liz Porter my eyes immediately noticed the beautiful black print that I had in my stash and knew it would be perfect for this quilt.

I also have many, many half square triangles that I have cut from leftovers with my AccuQuilt 2″ finished HST die so I just cut the pieces I needed from my black print and got to work!

It was really fun to put some of the sections together so I could get an idea of what the quilt will look like with my stash fabrics.

Since this will be another project that gets worked on a little here….and a little there…..I cut out all of the black pieces and at least one of each section needed. Then I just pinned little notes to them. This keeps my projects organized and easy to grab and work on.

  1. I sure wish I had your organizational skills. I'm going to do better this year! Those are two really cute quilts that you have picked out. Look forward to seeing them both.

  2. You had me at scrappy! But, THEN,…….seeing your fabrics! HOLY MOLY! Beautiful! I am gonna have to get this book! Thanks for sharing Connie!

  3. I have a box of 2.5" HSTs ready for a new project. Thanks for reminding me about "Barbed Wire" which I post-it-marked a long time ago. But meanwhile, the arrow-head design is inspiring!

  4. great quilts!! Really love the first one. And I had no idea that if you purchased the book from M that you get an ebook at well, thanks for the tip, will look at them more often now!

  5. The Fons & Porter quilt has been on my bucket list for quite some time. Someday (probably not this year) I'll sort all those bonus triangles, trim them, and make it. …someday. I love how you show yours going together.

  6. I especially LOVE that Barbed Wire quilt. I also have quite a few HST collected. Many of those were made from trimmed triangles when making flying geese. This is a great idea. And I could imagine just about any color used for the chevrons in between.

  7. Starting a new project is the best – especially a scrappy quilt.

    Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap! Don't forget to share my linkup with your readers. Thanks

  8. There must be something in the air. I have spent the last week cutting up my scraps for some new quilts. I guess the new year gets us inspired! Love what you are doing.

  9. I really like both of those. Good idea to include a copy of the pattern with the fabric. I have a couple of "projects" where I gathered all the fabric but can't remember what it was supposed to be used for.

  10. Beautiful Quilts, I think I'd like to make the first one. It looks simple and fast and that suits me. I'd like to get more quilts done this year.
