Design Wall Scrap Quilt

I've been sorting through my scraps, slicing up fabric, and feeding my scrap bins and my containers that hold my scrap quilts. These scrappy blocks are on my design wall, so I decided to make a few more today and add to them.


These blocks are from an Edyta Sitar pattern. Each block will finish at 3" so I'll be able to use a lot of scraps in this one. The white in the blocks is not supposed to be so prominent as to create a secondary design so I either sort out the lights that are reading too white and move these blocks around, or I give them a little tea bath. 


Tomorrow is more slicing to feed my scrap projects and cutting for a new project. I know I have more UFOs than I can count, but this one is just something that I can't resist.   More on that one later.


Thanks to Judy at www.patchworktimes.com for hosting Design Wall Monday.

I hope you are all finding some time to stitch. Thanks for visiting.

This scrappy Ufo looks great. On the photo it looks fine with the white parts. But of course a little teabath with make the top look more warm.

I like the secondary design in this block, and the sparks of bright with the light colored fabric. 3 inches are little blocks, you will be making a lot of them but they do look fun.

Great scrappy project. Keep up the momentum.

Marti said...

That is really pretty, and I like the white too. The last time I did a tea bath, it barely made any difference. I love your hexagons among the flowers too.

Kate said...

I like the secondary pattern. Very cool scrappy project. The blocks are 3". That's small!

Rose Marie said...

Yumm ... love what you are doing with these fabrics and pattern. I do like the secondary pattern that emerges using the light fabrics.

Kathleen said...

Love your scrappy start. Love the spark the white gives. Is this pattern in her scrappy book?

Karen said...

This is a beautiful start to your quilt pictured here! Love the scrapiness and contrasting colors with the white!
