Another Quilt to be going to the orphanage and a lot of scraps were used. Somehow it did not put a dent in my scrap bin.

I seem to accumulate small pieces of fabric forever. The pile grows everyday. I do not know how this happens.

sewdeb by sewdeb 11 May 2019

I know what you mean. I have the same problem. I'll need about 3 lifetimes to make a dent in my stash!

Some fortunate child is going to be warm and cozy wrapped up in this beautiful quilt that has been stitched with love. What a great way to lessen the scraps stash. I guess I cant offer any of my scraps to you, huh! haha

It's beautiful, Angie. I love the black, it makes the colours sing! Hard on old eyes, but great impact!

Scrap bins and yarn stashes seem to be unexhaustable, don't they. Do you feel you won't live long enough to ever reduce that stash to zero? I would need at least another 30 years, which would make me a candidate for the oldest woman in the country. lol.

I came to the conclusion my stashes will never be 0. I still have boxes unopened from the move 10 years ago. They are full of yarn. Even giving yarn away does not seem to make a dent. I need 3 more lifetimes.

This is a good size quilt Angie and I love a good size. No use to have one you can't wrap up in or won't cover you sleeping in the bed. I don't know how you see to sew (or un-pick on rip-lol) black, but it does make a dramatic statement and ties everything together. Great job on this quilt and trying to use up some scraps. Did you do the quilting too? Love the gray backing.

I did do the quilting. Since I donate them the cost of sending it out to be quilted is too much. Sewing the binding (black on black) I could only do during daylight and sitting close to the sliding door.

toogie by toogie 11 May 2019

I know what you mean by costing to much to send them out when you make so many. I want/wanted to make each of my children and grands a bed sized quilt. I can't easily quilt queen size on my home machine but sure not free motion that size. I checked with Kreative Kiwi when they advertised 'edge to edge quilting for .01 cent a sq inch'. Should have made it $90 as it is 90 x 100. I sent her a photo my my top and a photo of one like it, quilted with the straight stitching. They then said it then would be $270.... Needless to say, I didn't send it, having so many I'd like to make. IF I could pay those prices I could also pay for a machine and do it myself, which I'd love to do anyway.

stork by stork 11 May 2019

wow! That would only be $135 at my price....how did they figure there price out I wonder?!!!

toogie by toogie 11 May 2019

I apologize, it was NOT Kreative Kiwi, it was Kreations by Kara. They said it was a custom job. They would have to follow the block and not just use a programmed quilting pattern, I guess...

I really like this quilt, would never guess it was from scraps

2 1/2" squares and two 5" squares for the triangle made up the block. The black was from a jelly roll (not scrap)
