Tiny Scrap Quilt – Finished

After a disastrous start, the tiny scrap quilt is finished.  Having to redesign a project can be stressful.  However, I’m glad I wasn’t happy and stepped back for a few days.  Removing the white binding around the four square block was the right idea.  I combined the four squares to make an 8 x 8 larger block.

I then a 2 inch white border was added on all sides of the block.  The new frame in white is more proportional to the block from the original idea.

I had always envisioned this quilt floating in a light Kona Ash gray.  It’s the perfect color to distract from the boldness of the Cameo scraps.

For the quilting I went with free motion quilting in an overall loops pattern.  My husband timed me and it took 40 minutes.  Holy camoly, can you believe that?  While digging through my stash during my clean out I found the backing print.  I thought it would be a nice compliment.

Bonus was finding Kona Pomegranate already made into binding.  This quilt is all scrap and stash.  Happy dance.

It’s now ready to head to it’s new home and snuggle a baby girl.

While trying to get some photos the other day, this happened.  The quilt fell over onto my head as I was taking a picture.  Real life.

The photo I did end up posting on Instagram was a hit.  Thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions throughout this process.

  1. This is a gorgeous quilt!

    1. Thanks Sue. It took a bit to get there, but I agree it’s gorgeous.

  2. The tiny squares look so nice with how you set them like that.

    1. Thanks Betty. I think this was more of my original vision, but I needed to see it smaller to make sure that didn’t work.

  3. This is such a beautiful quilt, and I agree… the floating in grey works perfectly to soothe the bright and colorful scraps! Wonderful finish 🙂

  4. Congrats! on a sweet newly completed baby quilt.

  5. Such a cute quilt and great way to highlight all of those tiny pieces of our favorite fabrics!

  6. I read both links detailing this quilt’s backstory and feel as if we are lost Quilting sisters! More often than not, I am making up something out of my head as opposed to using a pattern. I don’t know why I have this tendency, because I own gazillions of books, magazines and patterns. Making it up as you go does present some unique problems, and I can “stew” about them forever, but my results generally look fantastic (to me!) – yours is definitely a winner! Good job!

  7. it’s beautiful! Way to use those tiny scraps!

  8. It turned out great Tisha. Perfect use of all those small scraps. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
