Neutrals quilt

I previously posted about my cut-a-thon of scraps...5 inch squares and 2.5 inch squares...well, this quilt started it all.  I focused on using mainly 'neutral' 5 inch squares and every small scrap I came across.  I was not picky, I used whatever I grabbed from the bag of scraps.  I love sewing this way.
I had a local long-armer quilt it in Baptist Fan pattern and am very pleased.  This quilt currently lives on my bed.

And in my blog reading I found a new quilt a long I don't think I can avoid...especially since it gives directions for using gobs of 5 inch squares if you opt for the 90x90 size quilt.  You can check it out HERE
I love Sarah Fielke's fabrics and quilts so it really makes sense to just DO IT.

Have a great weekend.  Winter has finally found us so we might just cozy up and stay inside the next couple days.


  1. That looks so cool!! I really like it! Now here's the question - do you now have extra little bits of neutrals to use up from the corners of the blocks? ;-)

  2. Fabulous! And a wonderful use of a bunch of scraps.

  3. It looks like an antique - and I mean that as a compliment!

  4. A lovely quilt! I have made a similar one, but more formal in the shooting stars pattern. I like the wonky corners and fun mix of fabrics!

  5. Wow, wow, and wow. You've been busy. I'm wishing I would have cut up my scraps into squares instead of tumblers. ugh. I've been eyeing that quilt along too. I love, love that big star made out of charms.

    Happy New year BFF!!

  6. Wow Jenny -- that's a lot of work! It turned out great -- I love the improv-ness about it. Did you get the idea after your class with Gwen? Very, very cool! And I can't wait to see your quilt-a-long quilt -- it looks like lots of fun!

  7. This quilt is awesome! I've wanted to do a neutrals quilt for a while and I love how you've done yours. The little pops of color look so good!

    Also, thanks for the link to the quilt-a-long. That project is on my to-do list too!

    Feels so good to burn through those scraps. :)
