Every quilter I know has a stash of fabric. We pick up fabrics that speak to us or remind us of a trip or are our favorite color. When I picked up my October 2011 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, I loved the cover quilt. Designers Paula Barnes and Mary Ellen Robison of Bonnie Blue Quilts did an amazing job of pulling together lots of scraps and framing the blocks with a classic blue print in Star Formation.
Do you like making scrap quilts? Do you let yourself go and put all types of fabrics together? Or do you control the craziness by only picking scraps in a few colors?
I’m headed to the sewing room to start picking out fabrics for my next scrap quilt.
