The Woven quilt from Scraps Inc.

Do you ever have a design that forms in your head over years and finally comes out even better than you'd hoped. That is the case with this quilt:

I had the chance to contribute this pattern to the newly-released Scraps Inc., published by Lucky Spool Media. This is a really great book! (I promise I'm not just saying that!) I was thrilled to be included in this project with so many amazing quilters. The great part about compilation books is the variety of designs. Everyone contributed such great projects. There are several I want to make.

This quilt was so much fun to create. I sketched out this design a few years ago and hadn't found the right opportunity to make it. It works perfectly for scraps or that stack of fat quarters you don't know what to do with. Several years ago I made a table runner with the same concept of this quilt. I've always wanted to turn this design into a full quilt.

The quilting was done by my wonderfully-talented friend, Barbie Mills at The Quilting Mill. Barbie does beautiful long-arm work, and I am thrilled with the results on this project.

I love this one a lot, although I'm debating on starting a new version--maybe mixing up the design a bit or using only solids. I love the strip blocks. They are perfect for scraps. 

This book is out just in time for the holidays and would be a perfect gift for your favorite quilter. Until December 1 you can purchase the book at 30% off the original retail price. Use the coupon code "SCRAP30" at checkout for the discount
