Longarm Quilting: Grammy’s Scrap Basket

I quilted this version of Grammy’s Scrap Basket for my awesome neighbor and friend, Stephanie. I LOVE the colors she chose. I asked her what she wanted me to do, and she said I could do whatever I wanted. She knew I was just getting started with this machine and said I could practice.

I love that.

So, I decided to take each section of the quilt and do something different on it.

Some things worked out better than others, but all of it was fun.

I also love that she just used scraps from her stash to make this.

I mean, that was the idea behind Grammy’s Scrap Basket in the first place.

I made the original with a Honey Bun, but those aren’t being made anymore. And obviously, that’s okay since all this quilt takes are 1½” strips. A great way to use up leftovers from other projects.

 

I am so glad Stephanie let me play with her quilt, and have fun trying out some different patterns. It turned out so pretty! Plus, it’s always fun for me to see quilts people have made from one of my patterns. Thanks again, Steph!

PS Did you see the free quilt pattern I designed for the Moda Bake Shop this month? I’m working on a really great version of it with a twist. Check back later today to see a sneak peek! Anyone want to join me?
