Madras Plaid Part 1: A Scrappy Affair

After the phoenix quilt, I’ve been taking a little hiatus from sewing. I started 2 bags, no patterns of course. Got stuck, rather, bored with the process and put them aside. Summer has since claimed my spare time…

Until now. I’ve found a scrap buster project. I’ve dug through my stash, and pulled bright patterns and batiks, and cut dozens of 2.5″ strips…. the inspiration? A wonderful tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, for a colorful “plaid” quilt. I will share the link soon (for some reason, I can’t find it right now)…



See all the yummy fabric piles above? That was the before shot…. I’ve really cut into those leftovers, FQs and half metres… it’s so hard to chop up beautiful fabric, but I know it will be worth it!

6 more blocks and I can piece it together.. wish me luck that I can finish today!
