Finished : Little Scrap Basket Quilt

I finished up sewing the binding on my scrap basket quilt on Veteran’s Day. While much of the country was already getting hit with cold and snow from “The Bering Bomb” ours was not due yet and the afternoon was nice and mild…though quite windy. I had to keep waiting for breaks between the wind gusts to get a few shots :) The back is scrappy, as is the front. The shadows are from the crabapple tree.

Couch or Lap-Quilt or Bed-Runner Size.  Top row : Hand pieced and appliqued. Middle and bottom: machine pieced. Binding : hand. Quilting: hand.

A few shots indoors and I am glad that I am done. I started hand quilting around the end of June, picking it up to work on here and there. I finished the quilting on October 31st and since binding is not my favorite thing to do, I took my time on that.

It’s a cheerful little quilt. I enjoyed working on it and trying out different hand-quilting on the various blocks :)

    love that yellow daisy block – it is very hard to get photos of quilts in wind. I don’t have a clothes line and always have to put a rock on each edge of a quilt to hold it down – seriously thinking of getting a clothes up for the warm weather times –

    I love your quilt . . . sew pretty for fall and finished just in time :) I am new to your blog and really like what I see, your post on veterans was wonderful. I would hate to think where we would be without them.
    Have a great day and if you have time please come visit my blog. I love making new blogging friends.
    Connie :)

  5. Beautiful quilt. I think you and I could be a team – I can’t hand quilt but I really like to do the binding. LOL

    What a great variety of color and technique in that little gem! I have never seen a picture of a quilt before where I would describe it as being “happy.” That’s what I’d say about the bottom right one in the collage. She just looks so happy to be outside breezing around with the sun in her face!

    Turned out beautifully. I love doing the binding. I find it relaxing. My problem is my finger gets sore so I have to rest my fingers a lot. I can’t use a thimble.

    Everything you make is beautiful! Love the colors.

    Beautiful quilt, Debbie. I think a clothesline is the perfect place to show off a quilt.

    You do such beautiful work! I would love to try my hand at quilting, but I’ve just never been patient enough to stick with very many things to finish them! Perhaps I need to start with a smaller project….

    You do inspire me to give it a try!

  12. You do such a great job, and they are lovely. What a great idea to use up scraps like that.

    Wow! That is beautiful. I love how all the different blocks and the quilting add such texture to your quilt. That last shot in the wind – love it – the quilt looks like she is having fun blowing in the breeze!

  20. CathieJ says:

    Your quilt is very pretty. It is funny that you say that binding is not your favorite. I find it so easy and satisfying. I look forward to it because I can’t wait to see the quilt all finished off.

  21. Congratulations on your finish! It is cheerful and great that you tried out new hand quilting techniques/designs.

  26. Stephie says:

    Lovely quilt, really sweet folksy feel. And what will you be doing with all the crabapples?!

    • debralynnpugh says:

      Stephie I usually have a branch or two cut with some other foliage for decor and then one of these years I need to make jelly or something with them…
