ANOTHER SCRAP QUILT

Just when I thought it was safe to walk past the scrap pile........

.........I started yet another quilt.  This book is going to be well loved, I can tell.




This one is named Sunday Morning . It uses the quiet, softer, low-volume fabrics from the stash.


I started digging through my bins, and found lots of bits that I had forgotten about.



Just three blocks in and I was hooked.  So fun and easy to make.



I'm not sure how big I will make this one, but I certainly have enough fabrics pulled and sliced for a big
quilt. The idea is to get rid of scraps, right?
I really love how it's looking so far.


Linking up with freshly pieced today for W.I.P. Wednesday.

Your blocks look just beautiful. I had a stack that I was going to donate to our church quilting group, but now I'm going to go through it again in case I need to save some of the fabric for this quilt.

Looks like that is going to be a comfy, cozy kind of quilt. Sunday Morning Quilts has been on my list for a while - maybe for mother's day?!

There's nothing wrong with scrap quilts, at least in my eyes they are the best. Although I must say, this Thimbleberries one is shaping up nicely.
Have a good weekend and Happy Mother's day,
Marie
