Scrap Busting

One good thing about moving, I was forced to face all my WIPs and scraps.  I chose to keep three  WIPS and I had several grocery bags of scrap along with some charm squares I received from a Chris Kringle.  I did not want to part with them but was unsure how to use them.  

As always I looked to the Internet for inspiration, I looked at scrap quilts on pinterest visited and followed the link to her website.  Mary's website has instructions for some beautiful quilts, many are made using strips from the scrap bag.

After a large dose of eye candy I decided to do a Log Cabin block called Courthouse Steps. Although it is a little scrappier than it should be I am pleased with the results.

Yesterday I finished the backing and pinned the quilt.  I am going to do big stitch quilting in a circular design. I think the circular design will give the quilt some movement.

Big stitch quilting is my style of quilting no perfect quarter inch stitches and it takes a relative short time to finish. Here is a video from you tube on how to big stitch quilt

Cheers Pauline
