Scrap Friendly Patterns #scraphappyfebruary

I'm sorry I have been neglecting the Scrap Happy February posts - I had some stuff come up this past week that required all of my attention. But now I'm back at it!

Today I am talking about scrap patterns. There are soooo many scrap options out there and it would be pretty much impossible to cover them all so I am going to have two posts for you: one with patterns that are specifically intended to be used with scraps and one discussing how to use scraps for (just about) any quilt pattern.

A Valued Scrap Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

When you are cutting scraps down into uniform pieces, it can be very helpful to already have some patterns in mind for future projects. I will usually cut down some common sizes (2.5" squares for example) and then I put a post-it note with other sizes on my cutting table so I can be prepared for future patterns. 

Since I know my own patterns best, I am going to include several of my own patterns and tutorials but I'm going to mix in some favorite patterns and books.

In My Shop

This list is not all inclusive - I have several other scrap tutorials and patterns in my shop but these are the most popular ones.

The Plaid-ish Quilt

I think most of you are familiar with this one since it is (by far!) the most popular item in my shop. This is a free tutorial that uses different valued scrap fabrics to make a plaid design. This pattern works well for larger scraps and for long strips of fabric and tiny squares.

Peg on

I have done scrappy squares. a little too messy but a planned scrappy log cabin much better result. I use for charity quilts for a camp and the kids do not mind!

Sew Surprising on

Love all your scrap quilts. I really don’t have a favorite as I truly think most patterns can be turned into a scrappy version.
