One Totally Scrappy Quilt

I thoroughly enjoyed this project. Assembling and quilting each block created from scraps of fabric and batting scraps was an extremely rewarding process.

Just knowing that my huge scraps of fabric and batting piles were dwindling as I worked on both sides of the quilt brought me enormous joy. Those piles had grown so large that they took up the entire half of a closet. Yes, there were enough scraps of fabric for both sides of the quilt.

I even found leftover binding strips in my pile of scraps that I was able to use to bind this quilt.

I'm now down to one large bin of scraps.  The scraps of batting has diminished, but I still have enough to use in a future quilt-as-you-go project.

A Peek

I'm almost finished the Garlic Knot quilt.

I thought I would share a couple of photos of the work on the border.

Three different machines were used to assemble the borders and then attach the borders to main quilt. Here are photos of just two of the machines used, Davis and Singer 224.
