Scrap quilt

Before I cut my finger I had been going to make a strip quilt but when it came time to make it, I decided to make something different.

It's a scrap quilt pattern called Co-ordinated Chaos, the original had many different colour combinations, but I have chosen to use combinations of black, white and grey with a small amount of red here and there.

I have even used the trimmings and sewed them together to make complete patches.
It was coming together quite quickly, and I hope to get back to it again shortly.

  7. I love the look of the black and white quilt.....I have been collecting fabrics to make one for my son and since he is moving into his own home in a few months now might be the time to start!!
