Scrappy 36 Patch quilt top
« on: September 17, 2013, 05:29:33 PM »
These are not  great pictures, but are all I could find at the moment. This is a scrappy 36 patch top. I hope to hand quilt it as soon as I am done with my current project.






I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

Blessings,

Just wonderful as always!!  I don't know how you get all the corners to match up perfectly, just pure skill!!  I've never seen a 36 patch quilt so happy you posted pictures!!  :)

You ladies should have seen me trying to match up fabrics for this. Even after I had all the blocks done, it took me a long time before I got the layout like I wanted. I wanted to alternate dark blocks and light blocks. I think it worked pretty good. The good thing is this is almost all out of either fat quarters or scraps. The sad thing is this was all out of fat quarters or scraps.  :o  LOL Didn't even touch my main stash.  ??? I can look at this top and see so many fabrics that were used in different projects. So it will be like a trip down memory lane when it is on our bed.   ;D I am  mostly a matchy matchy type girl, so scrap quilts are sometimes a struggle for me, but I will say, I love the way this turned out. As far as matching up the corners/seams, I have learned lots of tricks over the years.  ;) It just kind of comes with experience. This was really an easy quilt to do. Just cut 2.5 inch squares and sew together.  :)

Thank you all for you kind comments. I am so glad to have this board to post pictures of my projects and see others projects. I would have missed this.  :(

Blessings,
Winona

Actually I want to modify what I said about cutting squares and sewing together. You can do it that way, but if I remember right, I sewed a light/dark strip together, then subcut into 2.5 inches.  :)

Winona,

I thought I would share with you a funny thing my dad used to say.  My grandmothers always quilted with scraps only - from clothing, what people gave them etc.  They are beautiful quilts, but nothing on them matches.  My dad said that he could not understand why women would go to the store, buy perfectly good lengths of fabric and then cut them up into tiny pieces and then sew them back together again!  My mother and I tried to explain them as works of art, made to match decor, etc., but he could never understand the concept!

Winona and Renee', I love all quilts, because they are works of art in how they are put together and how the fabrics are carefully chosen. But I think that a scrap quilt can have a character all of its own just from the randomness of the pieces used, and especially if the fabrics had special meaning.  A friend showed me one that her SIL had made for her and she was pointing out squares that had come from her daughters' old clothes and there were stories about certain pieces.  Quilts like that are priceless. :)
