Oh, my word…Laurie has been a busy beaver. I have LOTS of quilts to share with you today and all are from Laurie. I don’t know who made the tops but my, oh my, if you have a scrap bucket waiting for inspiration, you came to the right place. I just got done making a string quilt and I typically like to take a break in between string piecing but these quilts have me second-guessing that idea.
Check out this great layout for a crumb quilt…
and the quilting is the perfect compliment.
How fun is this with just random sashing. I love the idea and I think it makes a fun quilt.
Laurie really goes the extra mile to make the quilts shine….see?
I’d really love to make a crumb quilt in this layout…I often have trouble coming up with guy quilt ideas but this would be great!!
The backing is great but the print hides Laurie’s pretty work.
I loved this idea for a bold crumb quilt too. Seeing all these great crumb quilts is the inspiration for many who have overflowing scrap bins need!
What a fun quilt.
Just look at Laurie’s work.
The sashing color is a great compliment to this quilt. What a bright and cheery quilt.
Check out Laurie’s detailed machine quilting…many of the individual strip got their own treatment.
This one was another great scrap buster quilt.
Laurie didn’t write a note a note with her email so I’ve been looking at this picture trying to decide if this is the backing or another quilt top…what do you think? I’m guessing backing.
More scrap-busting on this one. So many creative ideas!!
The next three are all jelly roll race quilts done with scraps.
I’ve yet to make one but if I do, I want to quilt it fun as Laurie has.
I love how many of the rows get their own special attention.
For a longarmer, a quilt like this can really give them lots of border practice.
From the great work Laurie does, you can see she doesn’t need practice. She’s a pro already!!
WOW…Inspirational, right?? There wasn’t a fabric line quilt in the bunch, and I loved them all anyway. This parade of quilts is proof that you don’t need fancy fabric or even fancy patterns to make some pretty amazing quilts. I just love seeing quilts made from fabric and scraps many throw away.
It’s totally okay if you aren’t a scrap quilter and don’t like working with small pieces of leftovers. BUT…I hope this post encourages you to team with a quilter who does love those leftovers and pass them on. It’s a great way to be a link in providing materials for others to make charity quilts.
MANY thanks to Laurie and the person who donated all of the inspiring quilt tops!! What a fun parade of quilts.
