I May Have A Scrap Problem... QuiltCon2017 Inspiration!

Hi, all!

Since I didn't really have a chance to play with scraps last week, I thought I'd share some more inspiration from QuiltCon2017 - and there were some fabulous ideas that would be perfect for scrap quilt there!  So without further ado, take a look!


Honestly, I think this quilt was my absolute favorite!  I love the mini churn-dash blocks that make up both the background and design - and imagine how many scraps it would eat up!!!


And wouldn't this be a fabulous way to use up some of those beautiful little bits you can't bear to part with?  The quilting is pretty spectacular on this one, too.


As you may remember from last year, I had a mini-love affair with orange peels.  Isn't this one stunning?  


I love this quilt as a great way to use up solid scraps.  And while that quilting would take F.O.R.E.V.E.R., I think it would be worth it!


And I know I showed this quilt on Monday, but I think it bears repeating - this would be a great scrappy quilt!

The next five quilts were shown at a demonstration for a scrappy quilting book, which I'll probably review next week (as soon as I have a chance to look at it!)  In the meantime, here's some great eye candy to spark your imagination...






Are you inspired yet???  I know I am - and I'm off to do some sewing!!

Hugs!

  5. Holy cow! That churn dash one wasn't so impressive on my mobile device, on here I see a bazillion churn dash blocks! And that 3rd from the last with the colorful rings? I'm gonna need to know more about that. Looking forward to that review already.

  10. Thanks for sharing some of the pics from Quiltcon. That churn dash was stunning. Was the background pieced or just a print fabric?
