Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Challenge Quilt Contest 2012
I’m so excited to be sharing you the progress I’ve made thus far on my scrap quilt contest challenge for Fabrics N Quilts.
Right away I knew that I was going to use all the scraps that I sorted out earlier this year. I’ve been using them for other quilt alongs and I’m barely making a dent in them. I need to do something else.
I also knew right away that I wanted to use the free form technique like I did for my ‘Architectural Elements’ Project QUILTING Challenge Quilt – Barn Bones. I love how you start with one thing in this technqiue and by the end you have a completely different looking quilt! I can’t wait for you all to watch as my quilt grows and evolves and evolves again and evolves again…
I started with my RED scraps.
And here’s a start of the free form quilt block I made from them. One of my favorite things about using up scraps is that the fabrics remind me of the other things I once created with them. It’s like taking a little trip back in time. Here’s a photo of my black and black and white scraps I used for my center free form block. Black and Black/White Free Form Block Orange Scrap Bin Orange Free Form Block I forgot to take a picture of my yellow scraps but here’s my Yellow Free Form Block Green Scraps – I have three Tupperware’s with green scraps – I think I need to upgrade the size of my bins!
Here’s an overview of the five free form quilt blocks I have so far.
Have you sort of figured out what’s going on in my mind as I create this quilt yet?
I just started my blue-green block…I have 4 main blocks to go and if you haven’t figured it out after that…I’ll tell you!
Have you started your quilt for the contest yet?
PS. Have you entered to win a yard of my original spoonflower fabric yet?
I can't wait to see where you are headed Kim, so far it is just gorgeous!
Thanks so much! I can't wait to see where the quilt takes me either! I love it when the quilt decides what it wants 😉
I am thinking color wheel, but that would be too easy! I can't wait to see where you take us on this journey! Your "barn" quilt is fabulous!
I am thinking color wheel too…but it's going to be all blended and crazy… at least that's what's going on in my mind right now. We'll see what it tells me!
