Sew Scrappy Challenge Quilt – Week 7



Last month I said that on Tuesdays until Thanksgiving I am working on my Sew Scrappy quilt as part of Jo’s “finish a UFO before Bonnie’s mystery quilt starts challenge”. Sew Scrappy is from Evelyn Sloppy’s book 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts. I don’t think I have any Bonnie Hunter quilts in pieces, but I want/need to finish this one and I’ve been stalling for 3 years.  Monday I got it washed and hung to take a picture. These days it is too late to take pictures outside after work, so I hung it on my shelves. It has also been delivered.

The quilt measures 69″ x 83″ after washing.  All of the fabric is Kansas Troubles, including those really light pieces.  As I was working on the quilt, I’d pick up a light piece then go check the selvage to make sure it really was KT fabric.

The batting is Hobb’s 100% Cotton Tuscany and I used Cairo-quilt in Military Gold thread in both the top and the bottom.  It blends so well, I had a hard time telling where I had quilted! There was one spot that I added a bit of quilting to after I got home.



The quilting was done free-hand – just a loopy flower that I do. The picture above is before I washed the quilt, the one below, after.


This quilt will link up with Jo’s Country Junction, Aunt Marti’s UFO Parade, the UFO Busting – 2015 over at Field Trips in Fiber, the 4th Quarter Finish Along (list is here) and of course my Crazy Challenge II.

I nearly forgot.  Yes, there is a pillowcase to go with it.

    I love how your quilt turned out! Your quilting is beautiful, and the colors remind me of gemstones. Great finish!

  3. I started off at 52Quilts and now here I am admiring your finish. I have done one quilt with KT fabrics, I had trouble with lights too in my project. That’s a funny theme by Jo =^.^= I would have been in your same place, with no Bonnie quilts to finish. You’ll see on the UFO Parade today my last one finished in October, Lazy Sunday. Are you ready for Part 2?…fun to link up on Mondays at Quiltville with others stitching Allietare. Happy Day! Sandi
