Scrappy Quilt

This quilt was such a fun scrap buster and used up plenty of leftover charm squares and smaller scraps. Even the batting was assembled from scraps!

For the quilting, I did a basic meander with a few loops thrown in for fun. I struggled a bit in the beginning with the needle falling out. Thankfully, my machine wasn't damaged. The problem corrected itself. I'm still not sure if it was a faulty needle or not installed correctly or (most likely) I was being too aggressive in how I was moving the quilt under the needle.

This will be a donation quilt through my guild. I hope to finish up the binding soon.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I love the photograph of the quilt glowing outside. I've had a needle fall out before, too, and I'm pretty sure it was installation error on my part. I'm glad it didn't keep happening or damage you or the machine!

  2. Lovely Patty & a great use of scraps, which I have mountains of. The outdoor photo is great and like Yvonne, I've had needles come out & luckily it doesn't usually do any damage to the machine. Oh, those binding clips...........I use 4 pins as I handsew the binding down & just keep moving them along. I do have some of those clips which came as freebies with a magazine. Thanks for showing the quilt, take care & hugs from down under.

  3. Such a happy and colorful looking quilt. It will sure make someone very happy :) xo

  4. I have a binding project in line too, but my OMG is yet another UFO to be completed. I love the block in your scrappy quilt!
