Scribble Scrabble is a Flimsy


Over the past few days I have sewn the blocks of the Scribble Scrabble quilt together.

All quilts look better when they're sewn together, and this was no different. Without the spaces between the blocks showing through, the design really pops.

I added a narrow light border of bright colored prints on a white background. That will be 1" wide when finished.

Next I selected eight different fabrics of mostly golds and browns on a black background and cut them up into roughly 20" lengths by 3" wide, joined them at an angle and sewed that to the quilt. I have already ordered backing fabric for this. I think this is going to make a terrific couch quilt.

And coming soon, a blast from the past...

Just in time for me to show off to the Seabreeze Quilt Guild in Exeter NH on Tuesday January 9, 2024, where I will be giving a trunk show of my letter based quilts. Perhaps I will see you there?

Scribble Scrabble is so lovely--I just love your colors--they that take the edge off the jagged pattern beautifully...and your seams look great all ironed open for a nice flat front!! Super job on this hugs, Julierose

Scribble Scrabble is awesome - I LOVE that you went your own way with the design! So much more interesting than the static version in the pattern/book. And. Hooray for an in-person presentation (and having NOT Paper Pieced back at your house).

I love the layout you ended up with, and yes, they always look so much better sewn together.
