Alex is very outdoorsy, simple, and low maintenance. I wanted to do something that would be unique but at the same time reflected his personality. I decided that I would make him a quilt entirely of scraps that I already had. I started with these big color scrap sections. I didn't know how big they would be or how I was going to arrange them, but they looked cool so I just kept going.
Finally I got four of them and it was a good height for a quilt, so I stopped.
Even the grey's were all scraps and I knew I still had tons that I could use so I decided to start surrounding these color blocks with scrappy grey sections.
Here is the quilt top finished, it is between a twin and a full size. I did it all with scraps!!!
I also had a lot of solids in the colors I used that were scraps so I figured I would carry on the scrap theme with the back. I love how it turned out. There was really no plan, I just sewed sections that fit together to each other and kept going. Not a new piece of fabric cut. Boo yah.
I am going to be going to the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild retreat this weekend and will be quilting it there. I am very exited to see how it turns out and finishes up. :) I'll share photos when I get back! I am planning on giving it to him for Christmas.
