The Ultimate Scrap Quilt Like Julie's is officially a quilt top. All 2200 scrap pieces. When I first saw Julie's quilt, I knew I had to have one like hers. So publicly I'd like to thank Julie for making hers and not minding that I copied it. Thank you Julie!
I started cutting with my GO! until I had a lots and lots of triangles. As soon as I had them all sewed together, I cut more and more and more. The scrap bin was emptied, smaller chunks were cut and eventually fat quarters were shortened. This top used 440 large triangles, 440 print small triangles and 1320 small neutral triangles. I cut more than that so I think I might make the extras into a pillow or 2.
Don't get me wrong, I still have lots of scraps......bins and bins of strips and squares. I have other projects in mind for them but first I have some quilting to focus on.
