Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Quilt Contest 2012 – Free Form Quilt WIP Report

Fabrics N Quilts  Scrap Challenge Quilt Contest 2012

I’m so excited to be sharing you the progress I’ve made thus far on my scrap quilt contest challenge for Fabrics N Quilts.




Fabric Scraps organized by color

Right away I knew that I was going to use all the scraps that I sorted out earlier this year.  I’ve been using them for other quilt alongs and I’m barely making a dent in them.  I need to do something else.


I also knew right away that I wanted to use the free form technique like I did for my ‘Architectural Elements’ Project QUILTING Challenge Quilt – Barn Bones.  I love how you start with one thing in this technqiue and by the end you have a completely different looking quilt!  I can’t wait for you all to watch as my quilt grows and evolves and evolves again and evolves again…

Red ScrapsI started with my RED scraps.
