I Spy Scraps

This is the pile of scraps I had left after cutting all the I-Spy fabric.  I didn't want to waste it!  Would you believe that I was able to make 3 scrappy quilts from it?  I only have one quilted, but the other two tops look very similar.

I chose this rectangle pattern because it was easy and it used 2.5 inch strips.  I cut my strips into 4.5 inch rectangles and paired them up (I even strip sewed some of them).  I made all the blocks before sewing the tops together so that I could divide the colors up between the three quilts.

I used some leftover blocks on the back to make it long enough. It looks a little plain, I think I should have set off the strip with some 1 inch black.  What do you think?

Here are the 2 different kinds side by side (the other one I blogged about here).  The scrappy one is quite a bit busier than the regular one.  I would only notice that if I saw both types of quilts though.  There are duplicate fabrics, (even triplicates) in the scrappy quilt but I think it worked out okay.

Linking with Quilting is more fun than housework:

  1. What a great pattern for using all of your scraps. I really like those quilt tops! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  2. One of the reasons I love scrappy quilts is because they are so fun to look at, and I can tell that yours is exactly that! Fun!

  3. I like both of these I-Spy quilts. I think the back is perfect. A black border would've been fun but it's just fine the way it is. I have some I-Spy baby quilts in my latest blog post. Check 'em out if you'd like. :)

  4. Another fun quilt! You found the perfect pattern to use up your bits and pieces. Too clever....

  5. It may be busier, but it will sure make some child happy. A great use of scraps. And I like your backing the way it is. You could add an extra strip if you needed it to be bigger.
