One Block Scrap Quilts

I'm thrilled to share that my article One Block Scrap Quilt is featured in the latest issue of Make Modern Magazine!

I've published several quilt patterns with the magazine but this is my first ever published article and I'm very excited to share it.

I've made two scrap quilts so far!  The most recent is my postage stamp quilt.  In the article, I give tips on how to construct a similar quilt for yourself using scraps.  I included some tips on how to stay organized as your quilt progresses.

My quilt finished at 60'' x 60'' so those beautiful collection of solid squares are 1'' finished.  This quilt was finished in April.

I also shared a few photos of my Half Rectangle Triangle scrap quilt which I called Scrappy Celebration!    I finished this quilt in November 2018.

While both quilts are filled with wonderful scraps, the fabrics for the HRT quilt were curated and I paid more attention to placement.  

Want to learn more about how to tackle your very own scrap quilt?  Grab issue 42 of Make Modern!  There are some wonderful quilt and table runner patterns in the issue too.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  7. Congratulations on being published for the first time! I know how exciting it feels. Such a proud moment. Your scrap quilts are lovely... though who isn't a sucker for the rainbow-y goodness of a scrap quilt? I'm happy for you, Patty, to earn this recognition for your makes.

  8. Congratulations on the article! I am a little behind in all my reading, but I will get to it!
