Red and Pink Scrap Quilt

Before my fan-tab-o-lus vacation I spent many an hour sewing like a demon to have lots of things for the Lansdowne Arts and Crafts Fair. Which was subsequently rained out, of course. The enrollment $25 seems to have been non-refundable which is kinda lame, but the plus side is my etsy store now has lots of good stuff in it and my new retail outlet; Birthmark is also well stocked for a while.  I even managed to make a new quilt to show at the fair, which was so fast and easy it makes me want to whip a couple more out. I had been saving all these little scraps for a mega scrap quilt but the pink and red were just too appealing together…

the birds seem to be popular for baby dresses, hopefully the same holds true for quilts.

il_fullxfull.71043120I am working on a blue and brown quilt for a wedding right now, but who knows if she reads the blog so no pictures until later…


  1. I just found your blog. Your quilts are beautiful; I especially love this red one with the birdies! But I like any color as long as it’s red. And I’m a sucker for birdies… I just finished a quilt with a Minky backing but I thought I couldn’t/shouldn’t quilt through the Minky because it might ruin the pile. I just quilted the quilt top to a thin cotton batting, then layered the Minky on the back and after I bound it I went back and did some tacking through all three layers. But after it went in the wash the prewashed fabrics decided to shrink a bit more and now I’ve got a saggy Minky backing, so I wish I’d done mine like yours. Do you have any tips or tricks to share about quilting with Minky? Your projects are all so beautiful. I love the T-shirt dresses you made, too.

    • Thanks Rebecca, I love using minkee on the back for baby quilts! But it does get saggy if you don’t quilt it. I talk about how to do it in an earlier post. I am going to try putting the link here is the link for that one.
