Me Scrappy?

I never thought I could handle making a scrappy quilt as I am so fussy about matching my fabrics.  I mean REALLY fussy.  But I have been looking for a scrappy pattern for awhile to start using up my batik scraps.  So when I saw this quilt on Quilters Going Banana's blog I just fell in love with it and had to make it.  Katherine posted a great tutorial on Stash Manicure so that got me modivated to start working on it right away.  This is 100% made from my scraps and there is something so satisfying from making a quilt with what you have!  I mean it's almost like a free quilt....right!  I even have a home for it as I redecorated my sons room this summer and they desperately need new quilts.  I'll have to get busy making a second one because you know how I like things to match!
 I also made these this week for my girlfriends so they can look cool on our cruise too!


  1. Excellent! I had an inkling this project wouldn't last long as a UFO. It looks great, Kathy. It is free because of the scraps and try as you might the next one is not going to match! That's the fun of scrapping. Your quilt evolves based on what you have. I see you are ready for the Christmas party. A

  2. Great use of scraps, Kathy! I love it! Oh my goodness, even the flip flops match! Too funny!
