So whether you have larger fabric scraps the size of layer cakes, or a pile of teeny,
tiny scraps you can't seem to part with, hopefully you'll be able to find just the
project you're looking for.
So, of course, the main reason for making a scrap quilt is that it allows you to use
fabric that would otherwise go to waste. But making a scrappy quilt can also be a
great way to use a specific print you love but don't have enough of to make it the

And when you think “scrappy quilt,” you might automatically think of a quilt made
with random scraps of fabric in a multitude of colors and patterns. And a design like
this can look lovely. But a scrap quilt can also look planned and cohesive. One way

background, then insert your scraps into your quilt sparingly for a somewhat
modern look. A design like this can also help the scraps stand out more and
showcase a special print. Another way to to make your scrappy quilt look planned is
to choose a single color palette for your design. Your ability to do this, of course,
will depend on having enough scraps in the right colors.

smaller pieces of fabric together, then cutting these larger blocks down to the size
And because you'll be working with smaller fabric pieces for your scrap quilt, an
accurate quarter inch seam is essential. Therefore, a scrap quilt might not be the
best project for a beginner to take on.

other quilt projects, you've come to the right place. Here you'll find a collection of
