Working from this basket of scraps, I cut squares 5" and paired them up in a light/dark or dark/medium combination. To make the half square triangles I used the diagonal line method.
I then trimmed to 4 1/2". Easy.
I arranged them on my design wall.......
.......and then re-arranged them. I liked the random layout better, although it's hard on the brain : )
For the quilting, I did wiggly lines diagonally just to emphasize the triangles.
I used the same piece of fabric for the back as the previous little quilt and the binding is wordplay.
This fabric has been used in countless projects and I'm nearly out
Another little quilt that will be off to Guatemala shortly : )

These could have easily worked into this quilt, but I was trying to use scraps. Next time.

I love it! I agree with the random layout- it emphasizes the scrapiness. Spell check is telling me that isn't a word, but I think it is.
That looks great! I like the scrappier layout too and I think the quilting lines are perfect with it.
it is so fresh looking x well done x
Delightful Little Finish! Do you ever take a breath? LOL.
Another beautiful quilt. Love it, x
It's perfect! What an adorable little quilt :) Love the simple quilting in it too.
Nice new fabrics!
There always seems to be scraps! And you have created another beauty with yours Carla! I love these colours and fabrics together!
I'm surprised you have any fabric at all left with all the gorgeous quilts that you whip up!! I love the random layout of this pretty quilt and the wiggly line quilty is perfect. Love, love, love the new fabrics!! Another sweet quilt for a sweet li'l one!!
Love the colors in this one and the quilting is perfect. Congrats on using up those scraps.
You might have resourcefully used scraps, but there is nothing scrappy-looking about it. The colours blend beautifully!
What a lovely project Carla. I find scrap projects so satisfying!
Great finish, love the colors :)
I love the random layout and the quilting really does emphasize the trinagles - so so pretty Carla.
Lovely quilt Carla. I can't believe you only had a small basket of scraps though. Philippa xx
Love it! The random layout is gorgeous!
This is gorgeous! I love the colours and the quilting :)
What a lovely quilt - and I love the wavy quilting - it really did emphasize the triangles! Love your scrappy pinwheel quilt, too!
I love it! And I do like the random layout best. You always motivate me to mix the fabrics up and not stick to one fabric line in a quilt.
What a cute little quilt! Such lovely colours. I couldn't help noticing those gorgeous arrows too on your design wall. I seriously love them!
That is seriously gorgeous!
Such a sweet quilt! Love all the colors, and that cute baking! One of my favorite prints! ;) Happy Weekend! xo Heather

Lovely . . . some of my fav colors.
Such flair! The colours spoke to me instantly. I love how you played around with the design wall to create your masterpiece!
Too cute and all with scraps.
What a gorgeous little piece! Love the colours and the photos are incredible. The grey text binding is such a compliment to this pretty quilt. Well done, Carla!
Just beautiful! Simple and beautiful...
