{Scrap} Love

Remember this?


I made a little something else to go with it, but I just now finished it 
(5 months later).  Thought I'd share...


I used my Candy Heart Template to make this scrappy Valentine's Day quilt a few months ago.  It was a great stash buster quilt, although I did buy the red inner border fabric and the light pink fabric for the outer "saw tooth" border and the black floral backing fabric (#4034 from Luna Notte by 3 Sisters for Moda).


*** Do you ever make a scrap quilt and actually only use scraps???


I did use up some red fabrics from my scrap jar to make this scrappy binding though! I got lucky and found three pinkish reds that worked well together.  Even better ~ some of them were already cut into 2 1/4" strips and ironed in half!  Score!


Natilie Thompson from Nestled did the quilting for me and she did a great job!  I love the all over "pretty posies" design she used.  Perfect for the country-sweet look I was going for.

Very cute Amber! I have made quilts entirely from scraps and I tend to prefer them over planned quilts!

I love it! I don't have any scarp quilts because I always get tired of storing the scraps and make a bunch of little things instead.

A very sweet quilt. Love the black in it. And the borders.

I absolutely love your quilt Amber!! So sweet with the hearts. :o) And I really love how you add touches of black and I have returned several times to your blog, to get a few ideas. Mixing colors kind of scares me. But I love the hints of black here and there and wondered if there was a rule for that. You are so gifted!!!

Giggle...giggle...I try, I really, really TRY. But even though I have a gazillion fabrics...I always seem to be missing just the right shade of "_____" (fill in blank) to complete some part of the quilt.
