You know I love scrap quilts. They make me so happy! Both in the making and in the snuggling under them. Not to mention I love to bust through my scraps. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve released a new scrap quilt pattern. I’ve been working on other exciting things. Look forward to them in the new year. For now I have 3 new scrap patterns for your enjoyment.
First I have Seven Sisters. I sewed the strips together and cut out the triangles ages ago. In fact this is the second quilt like this I’ve done. In fact I’ve taught it as a class a couple of times. I had several people ask for it as a pattern. I wrote it. Had it tested and was about to publish it when my big project came up. So it’s been on the back burner. So happy to serve it up to you today.
Next I combined string blocks with nine patches to create Home Run. A jellyroll strip and my fast easy method will bust those nine patches out in no time.
Finally I mixed stars among an Irish chain for Twisted Star. I originally made this quilt for McCall’s Quilting. If had such a great response I’m rereleasing it as a pattern. Use a fat quarter bundle or scraps either way it’s a fun make. The Star contains a partial seam. If you’ve never done a partial seam, don’t worry. I have a tutorial for that.
These three scraps quilts should help you bust through your scraps. Enabling you to turn them into beautiful quilts. Find these and many more scrap friendly patterns in my shop.

How can I purchase the pattern for the scrap star patterns. I don’t have a way to print the pattern, so I would be glad to purchase this pattern. I have soo many scraps from 15 yrs of making quilts. I love bright colors and the first one caught my eye immediately.

My mother is a traditional quilter, but I adopted your “big stitch” when she was in the hospital after her heart surgery. Hence, I dub my hand quilting as a “hospital stitch” because I sat with her for days while she recovered. I love it now, and her quilting legacy survives another generation. Christmas blessings to you and yours .
