Introducing my new favourite scrappy quilt: Scattered.
I can't take credit for the pattern or the name ... they are the genius of Rebecca Bryan and her book Modern Rainbow.
My scraps were not quite the dimensions required for the pattern, so I ad-libbed somewhat, that's the best thing about this pattern ... it suggests a certain style and gives you the freedom to play with scale and placement.
I used the Backyard Circus scraps from my last quilt for the most part ... and filled in the colour gaps with Ella Blue's Basics range.
They play so nicely together ... must be because they are from the same happy family.
|Why yes, Quilt Police ... I do use selvages in my quilts ... especially when they are this cute!|
You may have seen on Instagram that I had a few "Issues" with my walking foot ... so we just limped over the line to get this one quilted. My Janome is such a trooper ... but still I didn't want to push my luck ... so some simple diagonal line quilting was the answer ... but still ... that texture ... I'm pleased with the outcome.
Well this quilt is now jetting over from Perth to Adelaide and will be hand delivered by my Fine English Fellow to it's forever home.

I hope the recipients love it as much as I enjoyed making it for them :)
