A Use-All-Your-Fabric Quilt

I’ve been putting the finishing touches on this scrap quilt this week.

I got the pattern from the ladies of my old quilt guild; The Black Forest Quilt Guild in Stuttgart, Germany.  They made a quilt like this for a raffle and I loved it.  I thought it would be a great way to use up a lot of my fabric stash before we moved last year.  As I cleaned up my sewing room and went through my fabrics, I cut and strip-pieced the 6 inch blocks so that I only had to mail a stack of these blocks.

I also had a bunch of 1.5 inch pieces left over from my Crabapples quilt so I used those for the little nine-patch blocks in the sashing.

The Black Forest Quilters made their quilt with a scrappy multi-colored piano key border but I didn’t have the time or energy for that.  I just added a couple small, complimentary colored borders to finish off this bright scrap quilt.

This is definitely a great quilt to use up your fabric stash!
