Strips and Triangles Scrap Quilt

I've been working on a couple of applique' projects but then I got in the mood to sit at the machine and piece.  I was searching for a fabric for applique' when I found this quilt cut out and stuffed in a drawer.



These are my UFO drawers.  When I get this top together, it will free up one of the drawers (the third one on the right).


It took awhile to straighten out all of the strips and triangles, press them and sew them into pairs.  Now that I've taken the time to organize and press all of the pieces, I plan to keep going until I have the top put together.


Many of my scrap quilts are planned scrappy.  I choose fabrics that I like together.  But, this one is all types and colors of scraps. 


This is the original quilt made by Edyta Sitar. 


The pattern for the quilt is in Edyta Sitar's book Friendship Strips & Scraps available at

Thanks for stopping by today.

I hope you are finding some time to do some stitching.
