Bloggers' Quilt Festival: Modern Scraps

Welcome to my second entry in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side.

Modern Scraps is a cute and quick project I made using some strips I'd cut for a different project, but didn't end up using. I really, really love how the combination of brights with dark grey makes the colours pop.

Modern Scraps, entered in the #bloggersquiltfestival. Link in profile.
Measuring just 16" x 22", this wee quilt was one of two I entered in the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild's Modern Mini Showcase. VMQG was the "featured artist" at a local traditional guild's (Vancouver Quilters' Guild) quilt show this past weekend.

I pieced strips of solids randomly then cross cut and rearranged to complete the centre panel. The two strips top and bottom were added because they were left over and needed a home. Quilting is simple wavy lines, echoing at random widths.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this. Simply love it. And the way your mind works and your hands create.

  2. The gray background really does make those beautiful colors pop. And I really like your choice of simple quilting.

  3. Love all the little coloured blocks and love the quilting. It's very sunny.

  4. What a fun little quilt! Great colors and quilting.

  5. Gorgeous as a wall quilt, would love it on a bed too!

  6. A little mini with a big voice. Love the quilting on it too. Leftovers lead to some of my best (or at least enjoyable) projects because they are like a bonus and somehow less pressure.

  7. I love this quilt, Felicity. What's not to love--it's solids!! (I also just voted for it. :)

  8. So simple but so effective. The grey background is the perfect foil for the colours!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
