scrap quilt

This is the scrap quilt I made for a friend's birthday. If you ever want to make a scrap quilt, I would suggest getting help from an expert like my sister. She provided most of the scraps, and helped some with pressing, cutting, and piecing. I quilted it on her Juki machine. There was red in the top (before we started sewing) but I took them out because they didn't seem to blend well with the rest of the quilt. It turned out well, though I might consider using brown for the binding to frame it.

you are right, brown would have made a very good binding color!

thanks for your kind words. i don't know if i am an expert quilter, but i do practice a lot. :)

glad we could quilt together out of my scrap bins. we should do it again sometime soon!
