Scrappy Rectangles Quilt Version #2

I hadn't necessarily meant to make another one of this quilt pattern.  However, daughter #2 has overtaken the first one and uses it on her bed constantly.  She loves it--mainly for how large it is.  I assume that when she leaves home this is one of the quilts that she will take with her.

So as I was trying to clean out and purge part of my sewing room, fabric, and materials, I decided to start another one of these.  And it just went from there.  I'm kinda hooked on this pattern design. Normally I'm not a big fan of putzing around with small pieces, etc. but this one is good.  And really this is probably as small as I will go on cutting pieces (2 x 3 1/2) for a quilt.  I'm no CrazyMomQuilts when it comes to scrappy quilting.


This is how I start it off.  Put all the pieces in a bucket.  Then start sewing.  Then add more pieces, keep sewing.  Repeat until you have 90 blocks.


Almost completed blocks.




Finished top overtaking my basement.

So move it outside and have 2 kids help hold it for pictures.


Details:
  • See post on Version #1 for quilt pattern info.
  • This is a good quilt pattern for "ugly" fabric.  Cutting it down small enough makes it appear lovely.

  2. I love this. the rectangles blend together and you can't tell it isn't randomly scrappy! (i love using 1 1/2" squares, we are all different) :)
