A Scrappy Phoebe Quilt
This Phoebe quilt may not look very scrappy because it is made from fabrics that are all part of Alexia Abegg's Warp and Weft collection, but I'm counting it as scrappy because these are all leftovers from previous projects. I have made a LOT of Warp and Weft quilts (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) so I had a variety of different scraps to work with.
Originally, I had planned to make a quilt with random pieces from my scrap bin. One of my self-imposed ruler is that before starting a scrap quilt is that I try to do a little straightening up in my sewing room before I get started. While organizing, I found these scraps and threw my old plan out the window.
In an effort to continue to use non-white, non-gray fabrics for the background, I dug into my stash for background fabric and came across this Essex Linen that I have had for probably 8 or 9 years.
To be honest, I am not 100% sure what this color is called but I think it is Putty. I love how it works with the bright, rich colors in the Warp and Weft collections.
The backing fabric is Granny Square from Honey, also by Alexia Abegg. This makes such a fantastic backing fabric!
If you want to make a quilt just like this, start collecting Warp and Weft prints! All of the earlier collections are beautiful, but the most recent one (Warp and Weft Moonglow) is just magic.
The Phoebe Quilt is available in my shop!
