Scraps Squared!

This fantastic scrap quilt belongs to Patrice. It is a biggie and the front and the back use a wide variety of fabrics. The quilt has a great story too.

Patrice shared that this quilt was started 10+ years ago.  She and her daughter saw the idea on TV and her daughter wanted one just like it. Her daughter loved the idea of random colors in each block, but Patrice confessed that she suffers from "matchy-itis" and thought she would have a breakdown trying to follow that path, so most blocks have a theme.

Patrice used fabric leftovers from clothes she sewed for her daughters and herself as well as some quilting scraps from her sister.  There was cotton, linen, slippery things, denim and corduroy.  Her daughter has no idea that she pulled the project out and finished it, so it should be a wonderful surprise.

Patrice had a vision for the quilting and sifted through the hundreds of pantograph options available on one of my favorite sites - Urban Elementz.  She chose "Bauhaus Baby" and I was happy to add it to my collection.  It has a nice modern feel and is very different than anything I have used in the past.

And when ordering a new panto, I can't stop at just one, so here are the other new pantos in my collection:
