 One of my favorite quilts I have made…. This was published back in Dec 2012 by American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  Its all about the fabrics….  here are a few of my favorites…..
That pink on the left of the magazine wish I had more of that one!
  here are a few of my favorites…..
 another beautiful pink above need more of that one too its old!

 that blue oh my need more of that too

 the black with all those flowers is a great transition fabric as I call them…makes other fabrics blend together easier in mho...


 should have a bought a bolt of this Moda turkey red fun print...
 look at that maroon wavy fabric wish I had more of that and the pink stripe below and that blue paisley one wow!

Truly a fun quilt to make and a great way to use up scraps…. I will be making another one, I have been cutting squares from my scrap basket!

  2. In my growing list of published quilts I find that "Kathie made," this one is easily a favorite. How fun to see fabrics you remember and love; how sad to see fabrics you no longer have.
    I'll be on the look out. Maybe this post will generate some searches for you.

  3. When you have a quilt as beautiful as that one filled with scraps, it's too hard to choose favorites! You probably feel like the kid in the candy store asked to choose only one favorite! LOL. It's so beautiful!

  7. I love this quilt so much that last year I cut all of the squares to make it--I am making mine with smaller squares. I probably won't get to sew on it until next year, but the recent frenzy of little one patch quilts I made were leftovers from cutting this out.
    Was so positive I had some of that pink stripe I could send you, but a search of my stash yielded nothing. Must have used all of mine, too.

  8. I used one inch blocks and the first time it was hard to keep organized. The second time I just planned a few rows at a time but I think I would be happier to lay all the + out and play with them until I like the arrangement. You seem to come by that so naturally.

  10. This is the perfect scrap quilt. I love looking at all the different fabrics. Bought the magazine, but still haven't made the quilt. Think I'll pull it out and have a look, maybe today's the day to start cutting up those scraps. Thanks again for more inspiration.

  12. Stunning quilt! And congratulations on being published in what is my favorite quilting magazine, which I was subscribed for several years. In the fabrics of your quilt I can spot many that I have used myself . I think some of them come from a line called Folklore.

  13. I love revisiting the old repro prints. I wish the manufacturers would do a "favorites" line more often. I have a list for them...

  16. What a fun quilt Kathie! IMO, the best parts of a beautiful quilt are discovering all the fun fabrics -- and your quilt has a LOT of them!

  25. I loved it then and I still love it now, Kathie. I know I have the magazine so I must dig it out and start cutting little squares as well. Thanks for the reminder! *wink*

  26. Love your quilt Kathie. I recognise quite a few of those oldies and love how there is just a little bit of each used giving lots of scrappy goodness, colour and texture. I am sure I have that Magazine too. I find cutting into all those bits very theraputic too.

  27. Kathie, this quilt is such a fine example of bright colors in reproduction fabrics. I love this pattern! It's a beautiful quilt.

  28. Love your quilt! It's so true that when you look at a scrap quilt like this you see all of the fabrics you love and wish you had bought a bolt of them. I often feel that way which means had a bought a bolt of every fabric I love I would have to have gotten rid of all of the furniture in all of my rooms and just put up shelving for fabric!

  29. Isn't that half the joy of a scrap quilt? Revisiting all those beloved fabrics? Even after you run out, there they are, still living and being loved within your quilt!

  30. Can't wait to see it! I missed that issue of that magazine, we don't get it over here, so the only issues I have are the ones I managed to buy while on holiday in the US.
