My New Unique Almost All Original Flower and Animal Quilt

I had been given 3 bags of scraps from Riley at AQG in Little Rock. I sorted it and decided to bag it in groups. I found a picture and pattern from June in Fayetteville and decided to make the big leaf quilt my way. I pieced all the back white and beige fabrics, fused and cut leaves, and made pieced borders at camp. When I got home I drew and made animals and critters to go in the quilt. I really liked doin this. Each piece is machine embroidered. I think it needs a 6th panel. What do you think????? Do you like this one?DSCN2644

Making Yards of fabric from Batik Scraps

DSCN2431I knew when I started that I had no idea what I was going to make from all of Riley’s given scraps. But, I knew I was going to sew up all the batiks into one large piece of fabric and decide what to do later. The only thing I did was to cut every piece into 2 1/2 in strips. All the scraps were pieced and cut into 2 1/2 inch strips. I sewed everything into one long strip. Then I stared sewing the strips in halves until I sewed it all in one huge sheet of batiks. I’ll decide what to do with it all later. It might end up in triangles. LOL!

Riley’s Blue and Purple Batiks

DSCN2440When I got into the three bags of Riley’s fabric scraps there were a lot of batiks the were in blues and purples that she had been making some quilt from. I decided to use all of them in a top. I basically made a long row of the same size piecing it all and using all of it up before putting the strip into a top.  I love the bright color and the batiks. Fabric that I would probably never buy was fun to work up.

An I Spy Quilt for my Nephew

DSCN2576When my nephew was young I made him a small “I Spy” quilt. He’s bigger now.  So, with the three bags of given fabric from Riley, I decided to make my nephew a larger “I Spy” quilt. I used anything that a child could “spy” or recognize. When I  got the blocks cut out, I needed more. I got into my stash and filled in. I think he will love playing with this new quilt.

Dr. Seuss, Animal and Fish Fabric

DSCN2582In the three bags of fabric I was given by Riley I sorted the Dr. Seuss, animal and fish fabric. I picked bright fabrics to with them and decided to make a quilt for my nephew. I hope as small as he is he’ll like it.
