Completely Change the Look of This Scrappy Quilt by Changing Background Fabrics!
You’re sure to have fun playing with the design of this quilt. While the center sections are made from scraps for a scrappy look, the white bands and the yellow and blue background pieces can be anything you like.
It’s amazing how changing one or both of those areas totally transforms the quilt. Click here to check out the variations made by designer Anna Maria Horner. They’re sure to spark your imagination.
Piecing this quilt is fairly simple, although you will need to take care so the center points align. There is no curved piecing, and simple machine outline or stitch-in-the-ditch quilting will finish it off quickly. Or, do as the designer has done and hand quilt with colored thread.

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!
