Baby Scrap Quilt

My favorite quilts so far (I'm very new to quilting) are the scrappy ones.  I guess I like all the colors and vibrant designs.  I like how such a variety of fabrics can still come together to make something beautiful.

This little cutie is 32"x 43".  The back is one piece of fabric, the same as the binding.  I LOVE the backing fabric.  I found it at Joann's.  I thought it was really cute in the store and once I made it the backing, I fell in love with it.  I think it would make a lovely lining for a tote bag (we'll see).

I also added a little bit of embroidery on each corner for some extra cuteness.  Well, I hope your day is full of some scrappy fun too. -Little Mama Hen.

  9. I've been quilting 10 years now, and scrappy quilts are still my favorite. Have you read Roberta Horton's Scrap Quilts: The Art of Making Do? It is the book that started it all for me, and I still flip through it for inspiration.
