I used the same technique as before, making a slab of fabric and then cutting it to make half square triangles and then doing piecing as you would in any other quilt. It really is scrapisfying!
I have a lot of pink fabrics in my stash and use it regularly, which creates lots of lovely scraps. I have seen other scrappy quilts which are very strict in their use of colour, but I like to put lots of different pinks side by side and even have plenty of white backgrounds as well. The great thing about working with scraps is that it is much less controlled and the finished quilt a lot less predictable.
The quilting was easy and looks particularly good on the back. I quilted the stars a couple of times and then quilted each of the eight points in each star individually. This did create plenty of ends and the finishing off was tedious, but I can do that and justify watching tv. On the front I quilted in a deep pink, but on the back I quilted with a variegated thread which goes from light baby pink to deep crimson. I've used it plenty of times before and I think it makes the back that little more interesting.
Last month I linked up with Mrs Sew and Sow and who hosts a Scraptastic Tuesday along with She Can Quilt and I got lots of visitors and lovely comments. I'm linking this blog post to Scraptastica Tuesday (yes, I do know it's Friday.) Here's hoping the fellow scraptastic quilters like this quilt. As it's also a Friday Finish, I am also linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
Thank you for visiting.
