With so many new and fabulous fabric collections flooding online retailers and local fabric shops. Using up old scraps can sometimes be the farthest inkling from your mind. Yet, there is something thoughtful that comes from using those little bits and pieces of fabric that were once loved for other projects.
A box of Blue fabric scraps.
Each print in this scrappy blue baby boy quilt is paired with a solid chambray which is not only ow so soft to the touch, but also provides this quilt with a bit of uniformity.
Each print of this scrap quilt was lovingly selected for this new baby boy. I usually feel a bit sentimental when it comes to scrap quilts, reminiscing what each print was used for. Many of these prints were used for projects for William, baby bloomers, elasticated pants, quilts, a bucket hat, and Christmas pajamas to name a few. Each print seems to share a story for me of what came before.
Using strictly from my stash and scrap pile for the front of this quilt. I did purchase a new piece of fabric for the back. I decided on a low volume fabric that features a small orange cross scattered about, complimenting the darker blues featured on the front of this quilt. Luckily I had some left over grey crosshatch binding that paired perfectly with the moody blue and grey prints in this quilt.
