My first Scrap Squad quilt.

Today's the day, My first Scrap Squad quilt is revealed on Quiltmakers blog!

My quilt went from some of this
                      and some of these

             

               to a few blocks made

                        and then a quilt top

I liked my top but thought it needed a border.  I had this pile of scraps left from making the quilt that I wanted to use in my border.
 It looks so simple once completed but making this border took me a while to figure out! One thing that made this border possible was that I had LOTS of this black fabric. It was on sale for a great price and I bought all that was on the bolt. That gave me freedom to make the border without worrying about being short of fabric.

And TA-DA.........the finished quilt, Chain Reaction.



You can read more about it on Quiltmaker's blog http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/2012/02/qm-scrap-squad-jackies-chain-reaction/
You can find the pattern in the Mar/Apr 2012 issue of Quiltmaker magazine.

  3. Very nice!
    It isn't so easy to come up with a quilt from someone else's pattern, with your scraps in a short amount of time!

    Happy Sewing, a member of the 2011 scrap squad :0)
