There Are Several Quilts to Choose From!

There are many ways to approach selecting fabric for scrap quilts. A popular method is what we call “anything goes”:  sew together multiple fabrics without concern for how they fall (except, perhaps, with an eye to values). There’s something endearing about quilts that are made up of hundreds of different fabrics.

However, many quilters prefer a more coordinated approach. Susan Ache has developed a great way to organize scraps into a more planned look for spectacular results. It all has to do with choosing colors and then coordinating within them.

Quilt by Color: Scrappy Quilts with a Plan

Her book, Quilt by Color: Scrappy Quilts with a Plan, explains the process in more detail. It also contains patterns for several lovely quilts, a few of which are shown here.

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). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
