Sailing Along H2H Quilt

 While sorting fabric in my quest to use up more of my stash I came across a bag of scraps that someone had given me. I think they have been percolating for at least 5 years or more. 

these were the scraps and as you can see they were not all straight cuts

The challenge was on! Could I make a quilt top using just these scraps?

16 1/2'' x 16 1/2'' centre 

Time to start adding borders.

three borders added

After adding three borders it was getting there, but I still wanted it bigger. It was only 33'' x 33'' and I was running out of scraps, but that didn't stop me.  I added a couple more to each end bringing the size up to a 33'' x 42'', a small baby quilt. Perfect for Ronald MacDonald House, my charity of choice.

Some simple curls and swirls for the quilting to keep the quilt soft

One less bag of scraps, and the real plus they are going to a worthy cause.

What a beautiful quilt you were able to make with the scrap bag, and I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated by the Ronald McDonald house and its recipient!

Great job and a perfect size for a wee one.

Wow, you are so clever! I love how it turned out - who'd have thought that that pile could turn into such an adorable quilt? I need to talk to you about RM House.

And you solved the puzzle of can you use up that bag of scraps, nice work!

Incredible, Cindy!! You were practicing some serious scrap magic. The resulting quilt is a perfect contribution to RMH!

It is amazing what you can do with a bag of scraps and a little determination! Thanks for being part of H2H 2021!
