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 styles...it 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?
