Scrap Vomit Ta- Da

Yet another quick post so that I get another finish in this quarters FAL with Katy before the deadline. I have failed miserably this quarter, but c'est la vie! I've only managed 2 out of eight finishes.
I had loads of strips left over from various trip around the world bee blocks and quilts I had previously made, so I decided to use them up to make a scrap vomit ( such a terrible name for a quilt!!). Anyway, it didn't take too long to make up into a quilt top and used up loads of scraps, so win, win. It has taken me a lot longer to pull my finger out and quilt and bind it though.

I used the same pink spot on the back as my pink/aqua QATW quilt and bound it with  plain Kona pepper as I had run out of the charcoal sketch I had used in the quilt.

I'm giving this quilt to my BF's older daughter. My pink/ aqua QATW is going to her sister so they will have similar but not the same quilts.

Quilt Stats
Quilt measures: 70 x 70 inches
Front: A blocks made with scraps, B blocks made with Sketch in pink, aqua and charcoal
Back: Pink spot on spot extra wide quilt fabric from Robert Kaufman
Binding: Kona pepper
Quilted with So Fine in white
My original list for this quarter is here.

Finish Along 2014


  1. I love this quilt! So bright and cheerful, I am sure your friend's daughter will love it! I really like the way you've quilted it too with the wavy lines.

  2. Love the dark layout pattern that's popping up in this quilt. Unusual and different but very pretty!

    Im right there with you in the "dismal finishes for this quarter" line. It's Ok - I bought my cocktail maker so we can have some fun together.

  3. I am so adding one of these to my list. Brill

  4. I agree, lovely quilt, horrible name.

  5. It's gorgeous, Carol! The nicest one I have seen :)
