Scrappy Quilt Ready For Quilting!

I'm feeling quite accomplished this month.  I have this lap quilt all put together, and I really like the way it has turned out!

I am making this as part of Scrap-A-Palooza hosted by Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.

I just pulled a bunch of colorful fabrics from my stash, made five-inch blocks of varying widths, and stitched them all together.  The sashing is a batik, though, and I am nearly afraid it will bleed because I was in such a hurry to get it done, I didn't prewash it.  Didn't even think to pre-wash it.  I know better than that. 

I think I will just get it quilted, bound, and then wash it with that Synthropol and hope for the best.  I'd really like this one for a cozy quilt to watch tv, read a book, or check up on my bloggy friends!

It was a really fast, quick, easy project.  January is my month to get caught up on my own personal projects. February I'll be out of town for a couple of weeks, and by April, I get swamped with my Day Job activities.  So January is my time!

What are you working on this fine January weekend?

Always quilting with a smile,


  1. I love fast and easy projects like this...they are so relaxing to just sew! It is beautiful!

  2. This turned out great! Nice work!

  3. Beautiful Barb! Love the colors you chose and the blue binding was perfect!

    Thanks for joining along with Scrap-A-Palooza. I can't wait to see how you quilt it!

  4. I'm puttering a bit, laundry and working on piecing my wonky log cabin stars, catching up on blogs today.:) THis one will be fun to quilt!

  5. Great quilt. Love all those beautiful fabrics.

  6. Love your quilt! I am all about those bright fabrics! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it. January is one of my favorite months. It is like house cleaning for the soul, getting things organized and starting off fresh. Wish that feeling lasted a bit longer than it does! HaHa

  7. You nailed it. Scrappy can be great when done right and you did. I can't wait to see it quilted and framed with binding.
    Thanks for visiting my blog during the grow your blog party. It's so nice to meet you and I didn't have to "drive."
    I'm your newest follower.

  8. very pretty and cheerful! love your tile floor too.

  9. This is beautiful. If you are worried, you can test a scrap of the fabric. I also recommend color catcher sheets.

  10. I use unwashed, bright batiks all the time. No problem. Just throw a couple Shout Color Catchers in with it. Never had a bit of problem, and I combine brights with white.

  11. How nice to visit this quilt again! Has it really been almost a year already?!

    Thanks for linking up to Oh Scrap!

  12. A very nice scrap quilt; I look forward to seeing more.
