Scrap Quilt

During my spare time that last couple days I have been busy sewing together a scrap quilt for my living room.

I used up the last of my favorite red ticking stripe fabric (so sad), a little red fabric for the binding and leftover red fleece for the backing.

Here she is!
Using 6 inch squares, I sewed it together alternating the direction of the stripe. I didn’t worry too much about the squares not matching up - - it’s not worth my sanity!

I added cozy fleece for the back and trimmed it all out with a 1 inch binding.  You can see I still need to hand sew the binding onto the back.  I'm waiting for movie night to roll around this weekend.

See why I call it a scarp quilt?  Two colors of red fleece on the back.  Not very professional, I know, but I wanted to use up what I had.  Besides, when I get sick of it I won't feel like I need to keep it since I didn't spend an arm and a leg on it. 

She'll look right at home when she'll all finished. 


  1. This is super cute! I really love it,a nd I love the fabric!
