Dreaming of Spring by Carol K

The story is the same. It has been WINTER here.


Brown with white and gray skies. I am ready for spring and some green.


I took 13 greens from my stash. I stitched and slashed. I am in love with it.


I am dreaming of my fields of green as my garden will grow throughout the summer.

Lots of Plusses by Robin J

This is my Lots of Plusses, it is 12" square, I dug through lots of remains of finished quilts to get 12+ scrap fabrics.

I really wanted to do a big modern version of this but my time was limited due  to the arrival of our son and his family today and staying through Easter....yea, lots of hugs and juicy kisses!

I've wanted to do black thread free motion applique and started designing and cutting,. But when I tried free motion, I didn't like it. So I put my walking foot on and  stitched  away.

When I trimmed the batting to bind it, I really liked the way it looked with the black stitching showing, I really didn't want to cover it up. I will definitely do more black thread applique, but I'll use a more soft, curvey design that I can free motion.

This is my scrappy entry. I have been wanting to try a mosaic quilt for a while and this seemed like a good time.  I fused the pieces of fabric down and quilted spirals of matching threads. I used 24 colored fabrics.  The piece is 16 inches square.

Marine Footlocker Topper by Nancy H

Project Quilting Challenge 9.6  ~ Scraptastistic

We had to use at least 12 different fabrics for this week’s Project Quilting Challenge.  I also needed to make a topper for my cousin’s “coffee table”. 


He uses his dad’s footlocker from when he was in the Marines back in the 1960s.  Since the footlocker was green, and I didn’t have any greens that would match it, I decided to use mostly blues with pops of green. 


I found 6 greens, 6 blues and decided on a 9 patch set on point.  He wanted it very puffy, so I used 1 layer of Hobbs with 2 layers of poly batting over it.  I used a double needle to quilt with blue thread through the greens.  I love how it turned out!  My cousin and his wife both loved it too!

My quilt is 40x19.  A wonderful topper for the footlocker!

Easter Confetti by Diana H

I've completed this week's challenge!

I pulled out my hand dyed fabrics and tried a new technique for me to make a collage using raw edge applique.  It made a cute table runner.

Easter Confetti

The pastel pallet is reminiscent of Easter colors. How timely!

I've called it Easter Confetti.

Texas Spring Blooms by JeanAnn F

I was committed to finishing all 6 of the 2018 challenges.  DID IT!

Thank you for helping me occupy some winter days with challenges that were filled with design, color and stories.

By JeanAnn Fenrich, playing with fiber and fabrics in Scandia, Minnesota.

Minnesota is still covered in snow but my Texas relatives are enjoying Spring Flowers.

If not all in bloom today, theses soon will be: Blue Bonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Mexican Hats, Primroses and Black-eyed Susans.  Maybe not a scrap buster, but bits of many fabrics brought the bouquet together.

This wall hanging was inspired with a suggestion from a Texas cousin. My family knows I was committed to finishing all 6 challenges. Making this one for Cindy truly made this last challenge joyful.


The challenge asked that we use at 12 different fabrics. By the time I assigned colors to each flower I ended up with 15.  This was FUN!

Flowers were appliqu├ęd to the background and threads added details. After floating some green leaves the piece  was echo-quilted with thread matching the background fabric. I had just enough green from the leaves to add a border flange and the binding matches the background.
