Quilter’s Scrapbook pattern available

IMG_7165

The pattern for Quilter’s Scrapbook is now available for purchase in my Craftsy store.

Thank you to my three volunteer pattern testers Just Another Quilter, Deb and Liri for helping make sure the pattern is clear and error free. All of them had a lot of other projects in the works already and they kindly put some aside to make a test quilt.  I really appreciate their work and their suggestions along the way.  I have really enjoyed seeing what the design looks like made with totally different scraps and fabrics.You can see Just Another Quilter’s version with blue borders and sashing here.  Deb also has blue in her brown and blue version in progress. 

DSCN0117Liri tested the sashing and borders but played with a different block and sent me this picture.  She replaced the 100-patch blocks with pinwheels surrounded by scrap squares. How fun is that?

You can substitute any 10” block for the 100-patch block, or use an 8” block with a 1” frame to build it up to the right size to fit in Quilter’s Scrapbook’s setting.

What else can I tell you about the pattern? The X units in the sashing and borders are paper pieced, but don’t let that scare you.  The pattern includes a full photo tutorial with step-by-step pictures and instructions to piece these units.

Time to go inspect the scrap bins and see what else might take shape…

  1. I asked Deb about that sashing, looks complicated, but she said was very easy. Love that! It is a stunning quilt, and looks like a great way to use up some scraps.

  3. Seems like just yesterday you were putting that quilt together and writing the pattern! How time flies! It's such a great pattern and I really like what Liri did with it, too. Those sashings are really neat and it's nice to see how they play with another block.

  4. I just love the versatility of this pattern. The sashing is very easy. This precut paper piecing went together so smoothly.

  5. I'll post my finished photo tomorrow with a link back to this blog. Thanks so much for letting me test the pattern. It was fun to make and your instructions are wonderful. I could see a big 10 inch plain square with intricate hand quilting in those blocks too! So many options with your wonderful setting.

  6. This is such a wonderful quilt! Your pattern testers did a good job too. Liri's version is so different but equally good and I just adore pinwheels.
