Scrappy Quilt Project Update

O.K. maybe this project isn't going to take me a year like I originally had thought.  I really like making these blocks and I can see where the number of rectangles I've cut may never end....especially as I add a few more here and there as I finish other projects.

I'm about halfway through the 90 blocks needed for this quilt.
Here is a peek at what it is going to look like.

After this scrappy project is complete I want to make Amanda Jean's "Checkerboard Quilt", pg. 128-131, from her book Sunday Morning Quilts.  I'll use 3" squares because I already have LOTS and LOTS of them cut and sorted for my class quilt projects that I've made in the past.

But first...this one.


  1. That quilt is going to be COOL! Crazy, but cool!

  2. Renae! I love it that you are using the fabric scraps we gave you. I'm glad it's going to be put to good use. What size quilt are you making? King-size? Queen-size? You used the same pattern Kevin used for Mason's quilt, the only difference is that you made rectangles and he made squares. How cool! I love the quilt Renae! Who is it for?

  3. I think that we'll be keeping this one and using it for a T.V. blanket. That may change once I'm all done, but I am excited about it. And thanks for the fabric to add to my stash--I needed some different stuff than what I had been looking at forever. And I find that I don't have much "boy" looking fabric. Go figure.

  4. That is awesome Renae! You are such a talented woman. I admire you a lot. I hope you have a great day!

  5. I just love your colorful patchwork quilt :)
