A Scrappy Quilt - A - Long

Have you heard of Aneela Hoey?  If you don't know her name you may know her range of fabric - Sherbet Pips?  Well I have been following her blog Comfortstitching for a little while now.  I love her approach to design and the way in which her colours just flow.  She is very inspired by her children and they feature as a large part of her work. 

My Scrap bucket looks like this:

It is full to the brim!  Although they are "scraps" there are lots of pieces of fabrics I love and usually the last little piece of my favourites are hiding in here.  I use these alot in my works but at the moment the pile is a little larger than I like it to be.

When I was reading Comfortstitching through the week Aneela posted a Tutorial on a Scrappy Block Quilt A Long , I was sold.  She talks about how addictive these little squares are to make and I definitely agree - here's one I made yesterday.

Since making this one I have made another 5 - I will show you a photo next time of my growing pile of Scrappy squares.  I am not sure how big I will make it at this stage - but I think I might just keep adding to it to be more of a picnic rug size.  I have gone with bright colours - green, yellow, pink, teal, purple and orange.


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds these addictive! 6 blocks is a great start!

  2. Love it Jemima.......I would make a cushion out of this, just as it is!!!! and I'm quite proud of myself that my scrap basket is smaller then yours, so this makes me feel better too!!! You just can't throw scraps away can you, always too many uses. Am inspired to check out Aneela's site/blog! Always nice to be introduced to somebody new. I would love a vintage chair covered in the same way. Thanks for sharing this with us. Denise x

  3. How nice. It looks like so much fun and a great way to use up some of those scraps. Thanks for sharing Aneela's blog. It is a fun read, isn't it?

  4. In love with your blog!!
    You make me want to get creative!
