Do you love old fashioned scrap quilts? Laura from Sew Very Easy shows us how to make a truly scrappy quilt like the one on the wall behind her in the photo above. It’s a simple design that puts the emphasis on the variety of fabrics.
She starts by demonstrating how to efficiently cut fabric scraps into usable pieces. Then she throws them all in a bin, mixes them up, and randomly pulls them out when sewing them together.
One helpful tip is to put light scraps in one bin and darker ones in another.
While the quilt is perfect for scraps in all print styles and colors, it can also be used for a more coordinated palette.
Watch as Laura shows the full process in the following video, including how to make simple blocks and sew them together. Make however many blocks to need to achieve the quilt size you want.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
