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.
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.
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.
The Freya Quilt - Photo coming soon! This quilt is finished but I haven't photographed it yet.
Favorite Patterns and Books
(I'm not going to include images since these are photos of other people's quilts, but I will include a link to the pattern, tutorial, or book!)
I would love to hear your favorite scrap quilts - what your favorites?
