Scraptastic {a finished quilt!}


If you recall, at the beginning of the month I shared my scrap vortex quilt top with you and said that I was planning to use more scraps on the back...well, here is the finished quilt! Scraptastic Quilt

This is certainly the most colorful quilt that I've EVER made, and I LOVE IT!!  Everything except the binding in this quilt is from the scrap bin (even the batting!).  I thought about using scraps for the binding as well, but I think the black and white Cotton & Steel print finishes off the busy quilt very nicely.

The "scrap vortex" side is great and full of some of my favorite fabrics from past projects.  We even played a little "I spy" while hanging out at a garage sale this weekend because there are so many fun things on this quilt.

And isn't the Aurifil 50 wt. 2600 (light gray) the perfect thread?!  I've said it before and as you can see in these photos, it really is blends with EVERYTHING!  For the quilting I did simple organic wavy lines and even let my son do some on the longarm.  That was fun for both of us :)

"Side 2" as I call it (because honestly, I can't really call it the back!) came together pretty quickly.  You may have followed the progress on Instagram.  I'm not usually a rainbow kind of girl, but this scrappy version makes my heart sing!

This may have started as a scrappy quilt back, but it ended up being my favorite side of the quilt.  Can you blame me?  Just look at this photo...

So, which is your favorite side? Amanda
