Spcraptastic Tuesday - the May Link up

I have been busy making lots of quilts for #siblingstogether recently.  The deadline approaches - we are making for camps starting in July!

I received some fabric and orphan blocks from @janesquilts - a donation for #siblingstogether.  

I just needed to think of a design.   

I love my design wall - it just beats a bed or floor for laying things out on!  No pets on it for one thing and no need to clear it away.

I can leave fabric up there until a design comes to mind which I feel is even more important with scraps!  It didn't disappoint with this project.

This is what they looked like when I received them.

Hmm wonder how they are going to play together...?

And after a bit of playing it started to work....even with another project underneath to begin with!

This is how this project looks like now!  Completed top ready for basting...

Could be one of my favourites - probably because it was so unexpected!

Is it a Christmas quilt?  It has a flavour of Christmas for sure, but I'm hoping whoever receives it, doesn't think it is just for Christmas!

  1. So clever of you to come up with this design from those scraps. I wouldn't have been so imaginative. I don't expect a child will think it's just for Christmas - sounds like it's a dog!

  2. Amazing to see that quilt evolved - I think you've just sold me a design wall! This is a fantastic quilt and I'm sure it will be much loved every day of the year :)

  3. some lovely finishes for your siblings quilts.
    Love how this one has progressed through your 'thinking' stages.
    Well done it looks great!

  4. You are a Wonder Woman with scraps!

  5. Love how you can transform orphans into a beautiful medallion! Jxo

  6. itis amazing what wonderful quilts can be made from scraps.

  7. I love this quilt top!!! It's beautiful! You ARE amazing!!!

  8. Love what's on your design wall! Very springy and fun looking!

  9. Wow, the orphan block quilt is wonderful!

  10. That is amazing, I don't see how you "saw" that quilt in the orphans. Did you unpick the pinwheels? And the checkerboard border is brilliant.

  11. I know you have made loads of ST quilts, but this one might be my favourite

  12. I know you have made loads of ST quilts, but this one might be my favourite

  13. This is gorgeous! Does look kind of Christmas-y to me, but not overly so, if that makes sense? Thanks for hosting!
