Scrappy Progress

The Jewel Box/Buckeye Beauty quilt is progressing nicely.  I'm trying to think of name for it.

The top:


The back:


That's a sassy little stacked coins strip that was left over from a baby girl's quilt.  It was just the right size I needed.

Pin Basting:


I wish I knew how many different fabrics are in this quilt.  This quilt is made ENTIRELY from scraps.  Each block has 48 pieces and there are 30 blocks. 

to: MLJW - See some of your scraps above!

Sometimes I strip pieced.  Lots of times I just used 2 inch squares, which helps use up some tiny scraps.


Most of my basting pins are in the D9P quilt that is in the process of being machine quilted.  As I quilt, I remove pins.  Then I take those pins to the kitchen table and pin some more.  I've already pinned about half of it.

Happy Friday!

Nice Debbie.. I would love to make a totally scrap quilt. I'm afraid I wouldn't have quite the scrap collection that you do... your quilt truly looks like a box full of jewels!

WHEW! YOU MAKE ME TIRED JUST THINKING ABOUT ALL THOSE BITS AND PIECES OF FABRIC. YOU ARE ONE DEVOTED QUILTER.

Your Jewel Box is awesome. The modern, coordinated fabric quilts have their place, but this is the style that comes to my mind when I hear the word "quilt". There's something classic and timeless about this style. Good Job!

It's beautiful! And I love that coin strip on the back - it's perfect! You're an inspiration to just keep plugging away at all my little projects.

Forgot to tell you. I did see some of my remnants in your piecing. That is always a treat. I need to share some more.
