Fabric Scraps Obsession

ScrapHappy April 2023

Kate @talltalesfromchiconia hosts a monthly celebration of reusing scraps and “scrap-happy challenges” called ScrapHappy Day on the 15th of each month and thanks to Alys @gardeningnirvana I found out about this monthly event and Kate let me participate!

Here is my latest scrap-happy project, which is currently in progress awaiting my machine quilting – the Colour Wheel Quilt wallhanging which I will be using as a teaching tool.

I’ve already appliquéd down the letters and the quilt sandwich is ready to go. If you’d like some background on this piece please see these posts: Update on the “Colour Wheel” Quilt, “Colour Wheel” Quilt in Progress, and Color Sorting.

Here is a scrap-happy project I recently completed – a table runner made from my ridiculous collection of batik fabric scraps.

For more about this piece please see my posts A Year of Finishes: 32nd Finish – the Batik Table Runner and Update on Batik Scrappy Table Runner.

To close this ScrapHappy post I thought I would share a little gallery of some previous quilts I made entirely from fabric scraps.

  1. Well, now that you’ve *definitively* established your scrappy credentials (and I’m with Susan, I like the grey and white one), I can’t wait to see what future bit of gorgeousness you’re going to share with us. Welcome once again to ScrapHappy, we’re delighted to have you!

  2. I guess I’ve been following your blog long enough to recognize most of these fantastic finishes – a few are hazy. The one I’m not familiar with is the final photo…the shadowed squares are a great way to showcase those scraps in an artistic manner. Is it called ‘Shadow Boxes”?
    Since I know you’re a fellow pun-y person, I just had to ask!

  3. Tierney, I love your quilts so much and my favorite is the
    Sequoia national Forest one. Gorgeous. The pop of blue is a topper! Love all the details and I can smell the fresh air just taking in your interpretation. Well done! Thank you
