Kid Scraps #2

I distracted myself from the the 3  projects on my design wall (last weeks post) with this basket of kid fabric scraps.  It's kind of like comic relief!  You know...when you're stuck on one design problem just move to the next!  Anyway,  I have been accumulating scrappy units made from kid fabric for some time and when I pulled that basket out I realized I had more than enough 'units-to-sew' to make a kid quilt!  With Scrap Strategies when you have enough sub-units it really is as easy as 1-2-3 to pull together a top!
So here's how the scrappy units progessed ...
Some I used in an earlier quilt and some were used for this top and others were set aside for future tops...
A little further on in the piecing...  The group on the left were chosen to go in this top and the group on the right were set aside for another top.
A few seams and done!
These scrappy tops are a lot of fun to piece and they are made from all real scraps!  
There kind of like 'Ready to go abstract designs'.  If you like scrappy, asymetrical designing you might try this technique.  Here are some links to earlier posts that describe the beginning parts of this fun process.
Whatever your preference...
Have a great weekend!
cheers, Claire W.


  1. This is such a fun quilt! Any kid would love to have it! Having those scrappy units already sewn sure makes it go together quicker!

  2. Ahh distraction while solving problems .. that's how we all end up with a ton of UFOs and a box full of WIPs ...
    Though this distraction turned into a great project - someone is going to be very happy!
