quilt top, measures 32" x 47"
made from 100% scraps, even the background fabric!
destined to be a wall hanging for my front entry way
for those of you who asked, there is a stippling tutorial here
one more thing...it's Roxanne's
30th birthday, so why don't you stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday. she is the happy recipient of the first flea market fancy quilt
I think this is neat way to use scraps and still look hype. Is background the same as the top?
I really like this! I love how much white you use as a background in your quilts- the thought of white kinda scares me with kids in the house.
I'm really interested to see how you display this in your entryway. Will you please post pictures once it is complete?
I really like this one. Good ways to use up all those small scraps.
This is great! :) Looks like a great piece for your decor!
this is GREAT. it's like having a mini fabric shop in your front entryway.
Fantastic. Just when I had given myself permission to recycle (compost) my tiny scraps I have to start saving them again for this project! It is so on my 'must-do' list.
Pretty quilt top, love the scraps and colours!
What a fun idea! I'll second what Blondie said -- can we see it when you hang it?
I simply adore the fact that all the little pieces are not aligned in any particular way - that brings so much life to the quilt. I shall look forward to the next picture of this, with lovely stippling and borders!!
I love it! another one to add to my to do list!
I love this! It's a wonderful way to display little bits of your favorite fabric that you've saved even the last tiniest piece of because you can't bear to part with it. (Not that I've, um, done that or anything...)
Very cute! I am also working on something for my front entry way. :) I look forward to seeing how you are going to finish and display it. :)
That is like, totally awesome!
This is the most fantastic quilt I've seen in a long time, and thanks for linking to the tutorial. There seems to be a theme of "Improv Quilting" going around the blogosphere and I'm totally digging' it. One of these days I'll join in!
Such a fun looking quilt. Love it! Yet another one of yours to put on my to-do list!
It came out fantastic! I love it. I can hardly wait to see it after it's quilted.
this is absolutely adorable. what a great stashbuster. i've never seen anything like it!
I need to do this with my scraps, maybe with a darker background fabric.
Very nice. Do you have a pair of quilting gloves? I noticed in your tutorial you weren't wearing any. They are SO SO helpful! Are you thinking of stippling this one too?
Just like little gemstones!
This is totally fabulous! I love it!
This is cute- it looks like confetti!
yep. i've been saving up so many scraps over the years - from clothes to baby decor to quilts. now i have some inspiration (not like i needed ANOTHER project...but i just keep finding them). thanks!
This turned out beautifully. I am not a big fan of hanging quilts on the wall, but I can see this one on my wall. Great work!
I love all of your quilts but some have me baffled. How do you figure your squares/pieces? Thanks for all your inspiration.
Hey, that is a really cool quilt! Perfect to use up all of the little scraps. Thanks for all of the tutorials.
Wow, your quilts are such an inspiration. Do you ever dare post a picture of your stash? It seems that you've been using fabrics from your stash a pretty long time! I really enjoy checking your blog and reading the tutorials. Thanks so much for sharing your talent!
ooh! I like it! very cozy! Love using up all those scraps!!
Lovely, as always. How would you quilt this? Love it, love it, love it!
I love the effect of this quilt. So fresh and quirky.
You could enter it in my quilt's club President Challenge:)
love this quilt. looked at the tutorial and it looks like fun. gonna have to add this to my list of quilts to make. lol.
love it! I made a smaller one using that tutorial and I just loved the whole process of it. It was so fun watching it come together. Can't wait to see it quilted ;)
I've had the tutorial bookmarked for about a year now! Everytime I look at my scrap bin I think about making it but I just haven't got around to it yet. I love yours and its going to look fantastic as a wall hanging! :)
I really love it.
ooh it's lovely! i love the name, too. tell me, are you going to stipple your snippets? (sorry, couldn't resist)
it's lovely! I wonder what's the binding going to be? will it be scrappy style too or just one fabric?
This reminds me of a Mondrian painting. I think it is a perfect wall hanging.
Oh my! You really came up with a great way to use up your scraps! I love how it looks too!
Love. This. What a good idea on how to use a quilt! I've never wanted to hang a quilt, mainly because I don't like the looks of them on walls, but this one would look awesome! I love modern quilt patterns, like this one!
I am always impressed with your creativity!
Charming! Makes me really want to try it too!
What a great wall hanging!
I love your quilts, but I am pretty sure that you have already blown your new year's resolutions.
Seriously, I love what you do, but do you have OCD Is there a diagnosis of OQD. Obsessive quilting disorder?
May be OQC? Obsessive quilting compulsion? I don't know ( ; Any way, I love your quilts!
Hmm.... I have a whole bucket of little scraps..... I like this a lot!
100% scraps? Atta girl!
Love the video. Thanks for that. I can't wait to try it. You make is look so easy.
Wow! Looks like alot of work. Very nice.
thank you, thank you, thank you [i don't triple this easily] for the stippling tutorial! i will sandwich my second quilt today [inspired by your christmas quilt] and saw no chance of stippling it. very pretty but a complete mystery to me. then came you! thanks again :)
I really like this. I'm not a fan of making everything match up just right based on my accurate measuring and cutting. Which is strange for a quilter...
I Love this one, so colouful but not too 'busy' at the same time! I am so happy you linked to Roxxane's site because now I have my weekend project of those gorgeous dolls houses :)
I think this is great! I love some of the fabrics you've put in here - the dots in particular do some wonderful things! This will look great in your entryway. It would also be a great quilt studio hanging - kind of a "diary" of your quilts you've done, or fave fabrics.
Oh I love your version!Super duper job, Amanda. I can't wait to see it all finished.
This is a super quilt!! I love the effect!
I've had this one on my list for a l-o-o-o-o-n-g time, but as usual, you are way more productive than me.
what a great quilt!! i love the scrap ones. i just did my first one of complete scraps. its a doll quilt but at least it is all from scraps! :)
I have an "emergency" question for you about thread....
I am about to begin quilting a very large scrappy log cabin quilt. The backing is white with a dark blue design. I'm going to use white thread in the bobbin. Since the top is scrappy, what would you use to do the quilting on top? 1/2 of each block, of course, is light (whites, off-whites, beiges) but the other 1/2 is all colors. What color would you use to do your quilting?
Please e-mail me at jcleveland03 at comcast dot net
And while this question is directed toward you, Amanda, I will welcome responses from anyone who has an opinion about this because the "emergency" is that I'm going to my friends house tomorrow morning to use her quilting machine, so I need to buy the thread today. Thanks!
very cute! This is such a fun way to use up tiny scraps!
Oh wow, LOVE it!
That top is gorgeous! I have bookmarked the tutorial too....but I have a few other projects to get out of the way first :) That will also give me some more scraps to work with. Lol. I'm running low!
I love it! I'm off to bookmark that tutorial - I have a ton of scraps that need a home.
That is truly a work of art!
I've officially just added this to the top of my 'to do' list.
love all the white space! and the fact that you have 20 quilts laying around your home -- can I come over? :) K
I just did a teeny version of something like this - but that tutorial makes so much sense....Lets just say I did mine the long way ! (again).
It looks beautiful.
I was in absolute heaven when I found your blog! I've spent days reading your previous posts! What an inspiration you are. Now I'm just dying to get started on a quilt, whereas I was terrified before! All of your ideas are brilliant. Thanks so much for all the tips & tutorials. I've already learnt so much.
I should make up something like this with all my scraps...then I could get more fabric!
thid is just so cool. you have a lot of patience to make something like this. i just love it. is the scrap basket shrinking?
psst - come see my log cabin FINALLY done. thank you, AmandaJean, for your amazing tutorial!!
I love the fabrics and pattern too! My moto is no scrap left behind - this is fabulous!!
That is soooo cool! thanks for sharing the tutorial!
I LOVE this! This is just about what I had in mind for my next quilt!!
VERY cool. So modern and funky, but understated. Nice work.
I have been following your blog for about 3 months I would say and lady I have to say one thing, I don't know where you get your ideas for your quilt but they are GREAT! I love ALL of them. They are simple and fabulous! I don't know where you get your time for quilting, being a Mom, taking care of your house... and God knows how much that means + all the quilting and blogging! You probably don't sleep. Please keep the good work, I come over to see what you did every other day. Thanks
Fabulous! You do come up with the loveliest ideas, Amandajean. Can't wait to see what you bind this beauty with... maybe a scrappy binding????
I just love your blog and all your work and for that reason I have given you an award on my blog: http://allmomasquilt.blogspot.com/
Pretty, cheerful quilt!! Love all the white and the randomness of the coloured scraps!
This quilt reminds me of my childhood! Lollipops, popcorn and rainbows! I love your intuitive imagination!
I love this quilt. Your ideas are fabulous! Thanks for the Crockpot blog link. The crock pot is a quilters best friend.
Isn't this a treat. How creative. Totally dig it!
Fabulous, interesting, and easy to do. What more could you ask for? I can't wait to see it quilted.
