Scraps Inc. Vol 2

This is a new Scraps Inc. book! It was just released this week!

I had the opportunity to contribute to the first volume, and was thrilled when I was again asked to contribute to the second volume. Lucky Spool Media does a great job on their books, and it is always an pleasure to see my work next to projects by so many other amazing quilters. Volume 2 is even better than Volume 1!

My quilt in this book is Confetti!

 My goal with this quilt was to put together a project that appeared random with an improv feel, but with the order of a reproducible pattern. As per my usual style, I stayed away from crazy scrappy and went with orderly scrappy. I love a scrappy project with a color palette. The color ideas for this quilt hit me one day while I was cleaning out my purse. I have a navy purse with tan straps and gold hardware, a bright pink wallet, mint green water bottle and pink lip gloss. They were all sitting there and together it was perfect! I adore the gold accents in this quilt. Luckily for me, the metallic fabric craze was really getting going about the time I made this quilt for the book. The selection of metallics is even better now. It adds such a fun twist to any quilt to incorporate these fabrics.
