Friday Finish

I was able to sew this week!
Digging through scraps and sewing little strips together
suits me JUST fine.

This little vintage strip here is really the inspiration for the whole quilt.
That  ONE little tiny, PRECIOUS scrap
DROVE this quilt.
LOVE all that color.

Mid week....when I was working away at sewing strips together
I recieved another LITTLE bunch of vintage fabric
and it contained JUST the RIGHT blue
to fill this quilt out.

BELIEVE it or NOT...
I have PLENTY of fabric here...
but cutting into yardage kind of defeats the purpose
in a little scrap quilt like this!

Crazy logic???

This polka dot backing is just perfect.
I'm a frugal quilter.
This polka dot was a sheet in it's former life.
I love giving cotton fabric a second LIFE!!

Strips/strings used in this quilt were 10" tall
and in the top row they are 7" tall.
You might also notice I pieced some strings.
Can't let ANYTHING go to waste!

Quilt measures 40"x44"

Have a great weekend friends!


  1. It turned out great! That type of mindless sewing is on my list of to-do's, hopefully soon.

  2. ohh it is so cute, I love the vintage feel, very cool.

  3. It's so soft and pretty. Nothing is better than working with scraps!

  4. I've always loved your quilts, Beth, but recently you are really reinforcing to me the wisdom of digging deep in our stash, blending together the old & the new to create really timeless quilts.

  5. Lovely. A little bit of sewing is good for the soul. It also makes life a little happier.

  6. Wonderful use of scraps. Love that you pieced a few strips. No waste is wonderful and adds interet to quilts.

  7. Beautiful quilt! And the piecing works!

  8. Very cute! Love the soft colors.
