Fairy Girl's scraps..

not a quilt finished by me but Fairy Girl has her scrappy quilt finished...........
Last stitch in the binding........all done...........
We'll call it "modern"...........
she started out a few years ago just wanted to sew fabric...joining piece of scraps together........learning how to make things fit.........
it grew and grew and grew......she used a few random blocks........scraps my girlfriends visiting over time also gave her.........
Sadly this quilt is double bed size and she didn't put a dint in the scraps....lol..
but she had such fun just joining pieces together.....making things fit together...........I think I straightened up one edge when it was very small and it is pretty square........
It is backed with a light green with white spot polar fleece so very snuggly......
quilted by Betty Field........
I had told her I was not getting it quilted and she would have to do it but I surprised her not long ago and she was so excited........she had to finish the binding off........
I wished I could just "play free"  like this..........but ideas, colours, styles of fabric have "rules" in my head......
Catch you later.....

  2. I hear what you are saying, I don't "do" random very well, and have a hard time just picking up scrappy without looking at what colours play nice with each other. Great quilt though, looks so much fun.

  6. I love this idea and it will always be a very special quilt for Fairy Girl.
    I don't do scrappy comfortably...but I think I could do that if I had random odd pieces..I know - I'm a bit odd.

  10. I adore it! And, it is funny what would now be considered "modern" is truly a traditional type of quilt. If not for the fabrics this could have been made in 1880. I just love everything about it. Well done and thanks for sharing it!

  26. Well done Fairy Girl - great work there... maybe you could get together with friends & make more quilts like this, all of you making good use of the scraps!

    Chooky, I hear you on the 'rules' thing... I have trouble being scrappy & free-spirited too... some folks got that talent, I sure don't!
