I enjoyed the tutorial on making this scrap quilt. It will make a great “I Spy” quilt. Thank you for sharing.
It’s a great idea. However, I think that I would pink my scraps, or turn them under, to avoid the frayed edges.
Awwww, this is adorable! I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m going to put this in my “quilt design ideas” file. Thank you so much for sharing!
I think I’d like to use flannel scraps for the ‘patches’. It will give a great tactile feel to a baby quilt or lap quilt for a nursing home resident.
This is so cute and looks so easy, thank you for sharing this cute pattern, I am definitely going to try it.
