Scrappy Kelly Quilt Off the Wall






Scrappy Kelly is off she wall and now ready to be quilted!! Happy Dance!!

I began piecing Scrappy Kelly last November, and here it is 7 months later finally ready to be quilted.  I didn't even have a plan as how I was going to put these blocks together. All I knew was I needed to do something with all these leftover 2 inch squares.

In March I designed a couple of quilt designs using Electric Quilt. Go here to see the two designs.
My favorite was the on-point version but nixed that idea since I would have to diagonally cut blocks in half for the edges.




These are the leftover 2 inch square pieces. It seems as they are growing rather than lessening. The fabric is some that have been in my stash for many many years.

How many different quilt designs can be made from these 2 inch squares. Any ideas?

Maybe in a couple more years I will give some thought to it as for now I have 5 bed size quilts waiting to be quilted.












Even with chain stitching the squares onto the strips the blocks still took a good bit of time to complete.

 









 So this is what I have been up to lately quilting wise when finding time. Work life has taken up more of my time in the last year or so, all for great causes. One is administrating a large size grant that assists pregnancy centers in North Carolina. The other client sends out missionaries that took on an orphanage in Ecuador that has generated more work. If you want to more about the orphanage you can visit their website at La Casa deFe. 


 Miss all of my online quilting friends!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than housework.

  4. This is just beautiful way to use up your spare 2" squares. Interesting to read that you used EQ because I had never hear of it until this morning when I looked it up. Love the two designs you did.
