Finished Scrap Attack Quilt

Hello everyone!
I wanted to share with you my latest quilt finish.  Here is the Scrap Attack quilt that I made for a friend's baby shower.  I can finally share it because the shower was yesterday.  I didn't want to spoil the surprise, you know?

It finished at only 36 x 36 inches, but it's a nice size for a baby.  Each block took about a hour to complete and there are at least 10 years worth of scraps in the mix.  The great thing is that I am finally beginning to see a dent in my scrap pile.  Woo hoo!  It has only taken me all summer to do.

I toyed around with several ideas for the quilting, but in the end settled on simple stippling.  I love how it softened the lines.  I even didn't cross any of my lines... well, almost.  There's at least one tiny one, but I'm not telling where it is, if I could even find it.  It's probably my best stippling job yet.

I bound it in red polka dot fabric and backed it with a print I have had in my stash for a long time.  It's a bright colored print with happy little mushrooms.

The happy bright colors just make me smile every time I look at it.  I hope it makes baby smile too.

In other news, I have been slowly working on the next pattern which I hope to have ready sometime in the fall.  I have been taking my time really thinking through the design.  Just a little hint as to the idea... think princess seams and 1940's inspiration.

I hope you are having a great week creating pretty things.  I'd love to hear about any projects you are working on.

Until next time,
Happy Sewing!
