A few years ago, I made a Scrap Vortex quilt. This is a fun, super easy method you can read about HERE). I was hooked. To this day, I think this quilt is my all-time favorite. I backed it in a snuggly flannel sheet from Target and it is the quilt that hangs out in my baby’s room. I use it literally daily. I had no idea scrap quilts were such a “thing” when I started, but now I know better. We don’t like to waste our precious fabric!
After I finished this quilt, I wanted to make another immediately. I decided to start saving my Cotton + Steel selvages to make a selvage quilt. I had no idea what I would choose to do eventually, but I saved every. single. one. Fast forward a few years and I decided to use THIS method to make my quilt. It took about a zillion selvages, but thanks to the help of awesome friends, I finished!
Last week on Instagram, I posed a question asking for suggestions of scrap quilt tutorials and patterns after having finished my selvage quilt. Here are some of the suggestions and links to tutorials/patterns!
