Scrapbuster Block

Hello!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far!

I think one of my favorite kinds of quilts are scrap quilts.  With the mixture of colors, tones, and fabric just feels warm and cozy.  And, it's a great way to use up all those little pieces of fabric.  Plus, I think scrap quilts make a great gift and they go with anything! 

Last week, I was asked to make an angel block for the 3x6 Mini Sampler Quilt Bee on Flickr.  The colors needed to be rainbow on a white background.  This what I decided to make:

It is a scrapbuster block using Little Miss Shabby's Scrapbuster Block Tutorial.  It was fun to make and went together quickly.  All-in-all, there are 48 little colorful squares, each finishing at 1".  I like the look of this block and am thinking of making an entire quilt out of this pattern.  She also has a tutorial for a block that's the reverse of this (white fabric where the colors are and colors where the white fabric is...but she used gray in her block), so maybe a combination of the two in a quilt would be fun.  Ready for the best part?  I really wouldn't need to buy any fabric!  I have TONS of scraps (enough for several quilts probably) and lots of white fabric...well, I may end up needing to buy a little of that, but white fabric is pretty inexpensive. 

So,  what is your favorite kind of quilt to make?

Feeling Gray?


I hope you're enjoying 2012 so far!  I've been signing up for more swaps, bees, and quilt alongs. is hosting a Shades of Gray swap.  These are the gray's I'm planning to send:

I've also signed up to design a block in Kim's Home Sweet Home quilt along at Where Creativity Blossoms.  I am so excited!  The block needs to have a tree or a house (or both)...that's the only requirement. I've been spending the last couple of days designing possible blocks.  Here is a sneak peak:
You don't think I'd show you the full blocks just yet, do you?!  My tutorial will available on my blog on March 27th...but maybe I'll show sneak peaks of the block I decide to go with before then...we'll see.  Feel free to quilt along with us.  There is a full list of where you can find all the details, as well as who will host each block, on the Where Creativity Blossoms site.  The fun starts on January 17th!

Have a great week!
