Tales From The Scrap Yard: #10

A new top!
40.5 x 58.5

Back on March 24 I received several bags of scraps and I decided to document  with "Tales From The Scrap Yard" how many donation quilts I could make from those scraps. I've been trying to make the quilts all different.  I sorted the scraps into different bins and boxes and this is the second quilt to come out of the brown scraps. I added in some of my own scraps (blue,white, red plaids and green and red stripe) to pick up the colors of some of the cars and trucks in the square that makes up the star. 

This is quilt top #10 and when finished will probably be donated to Quilts Beyond Borders. 

This is the last quilt to come from the bags of scraps. The remaining scraps will get mixed with mine. Most of those scraps will go into slab, crumb and string quilts. 

This was a fun exercise in scrap usage. 

I've been blogging about all that I make from the March 24 gifted scraps (aka Candra scraps) in Tales of the Scrap Yard.

Wow, 10 quilt tops in 3 months! That is very impressive. And we all know that scrappy quilts take longer. I love the variety of quilts that you made with all those scraps!

Those plaids just set that quilt off, in all those other darker blocks. Of course, the star makes it very special too! Ten finished in three month? Unbelievable! But we have seen them all! (I haven't even started one!) ---"Love"
