Scrap quilt

Added Jul 15, 2008

Portsmouth, Unit...






I made this quilt from all my left overs ( there are tons of those!!) Each piece is a ‘sloped’ rectangle, sewn together in rows first. Then sew each row together. Each year i make another quilt for the house ( oh my poor husband !) and I was trying to reduce my fabric, that is hidden all over the house. Its about the size of a double bed.

Material Notes

As its my leftovers, its a mixture of cotton, cordoroy, wool. Some beautiful japanese fabric in there too. I backed it with some really bright orange Amy Butler fabric ( not shown )
