This mini quilt needs a good home!

February 8, 2010 § 152 Comments

Nothing but Scraps!

While I’m trying to decide what to do with my Scrappy Lone Star from Judy Irish’s class, I decided to make a Mini Star.  Most of my scraps are small pieces so this was a perfect match!

The finished size is approximately 27-inches square.  And… ALL scraps.  No new fabric was harmed in the making of this quilt. (I love saying that!) Including the batting, backing & binding.

Mini Lone Star

SO….  I’ve decided to give this one away.  Yup!   That’s right!  It could be yours!

In honor of all scrappy goodness…  and February being my blog anniversary… and because you all are SO great…  I am going to give this mini quilt to one  lucky reader.  All you have  to do is tell me what you are making with your scraps in the comments.

Let’s see…  Shall I draw a name on February 14th?  Valentine’s Day?  This could be a Valentine gift to you.  Comments will close on Saturday, February 13th… so don’t wait. Leave a comment now and this Mini Star could be finding it’s way to your home.

    I loved the photo you showed earlier of this quilt, who could resist brights with some black/cream! I have 3 current projects on the go and my next for me quilt will be a “king scrapper”, probably a star/triangle combo with a scrap border and scrap binding – it’ll be rights with a fair dose of black and white. Thanks for the chance Anita!

  • Leah says:

    Happy Blogiversary.

    What a great lone star. As yet I haven’t plucked up the courage to make one1

    I’m going to be making a crazy nine patch lattice quilt that OhFransson! has currently on her blog with my scraps.

  • Barb says:

    Beautiful – I can’t believe you are giving it away! It would find a happy home at my house!

  • Monika says:

    I can´t believe that you want to give this one away …. it´s gorgeous! And I LOVE projects made of scraps – I have piles of scraps …

    My next project will be a patchwork scottie dog – with 1 1/2″ squares (I´m cutting them right now – but there are NOT many gone for this … still many left 🙂

  • Rita Chu says:

    Wow! this is just such a wonderful mini lone star quilt! and all from scraps too! you’re amazing! congrats on your blog anniversary!

  • Balinda says:

    I have to tell you that your blog is what got me started blogging. I am a knitter and a quilter and I hadn’t realized that there were others out htere like me.
    I am currently make some applique building blocks using as much of my scrap as possible.
    Keep inspiring. 🙂

  • Ann Champion says:

    I LOVE that little quilt! I can’t believe you’re willing to let it go.
    Happy Anniversary!
    I’m currently making doll/little quilts with my scraps.

  • Mary says:

    I just signed up for an English paper piecing class, so I’m cutting up some scraps for hexagons.

    I love the colors in this quilt. Congratulations on your blogiversary!

  • gill says:

    i love love this quilt!
    count me in please

  • rosamaria says:

    wow! that is an amazing scrap quilt!! i’m working paper pieced with my scraps.

  • Viv says:

    Stunning, just stunning!!! What a gem you are to offer this to a lucky reader. I haven’t read your blog yet, I saw you on flickr, but now I’ll be staying to read 🙂

    I’m saving my scraps at the moment, I’m going to use them for a rainbow quilt. I’m not sure what type of block I’ll use yet.

    Hapy sewing!

  • Susan says:

    I love that little quilt. It’s so cheerful and bright.

    I’m afraid I have no scraps. I send them to my mother-in-law to use. She loves to make scrap quilts and my scraps are a little atypical for her so she enjoys the little bit of zip they give her quilts.

    Have a great day,

  • Beth says:

    beautiful – this has always been a favorite of mine. i have a quilt peiced by my great-grandmother – Mamaw – and quilted by my best friend from high school in this pattern.

  • britt says:

    My scraps will probably be made into crazy blocks, right now they are in the “collecting” stage. I don’t technique names, but just kind of throw them down and sew and then cut out the shape I want.
    I love your mini star!

  • deb says:

    I love your lone star quilt [swoon]! I’m slowly slowly making a 9-patch quilt out of my scraps.

  • ritacor says:

    That´s a great giveaway!
    one of my favoutite quilt patterns 🙂

    Well, I am doing maverick stars with my scraps, it´s also a great way of using them!

  • Ruthiequilts says:

    Wow! What a stunning little gem! I love this quilt and would be absolutely thrilled to win it! Beautiful workmanship…

  • MichelleB says:

    Wow! It’s just perfect.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t been making much with scraps, but I do have some scrappy log cabins on my design wall that I love!

  • camelama says:

    It’s beautiful! I’m making little tiny itty bitty soft sculptures with a lot of my scraps.

  • wonderwoman says:

    i would love to be in with a chance to win your lovely quilt – i’m making a mini heart quilt with my scralps!


  • Tina says:

    Anita, I just put two and two together and realized you ARE rhubarbpatch on flickr. How funny, I guess I’m just a little slow since I’ve been reading your blog for a long time now and have seen you around flickr doll quilt swap and other groups! I’m not really doing a lot with scraps at the moment, but I love what you are doing. Beautiful.

  • Frieda Z says:

    I have been making pot holders and pin cushions with my scraps. Your lone star is a much better use of them., I love it!!!!!

  • Anita says:

    Wow, that is simply beautiful! I’ve been making pillows and string blocks. I love scraps.

  • karen says:

    WOW – I would love to have this quilt – it is a beauty – what great colours. I made my DQS8 out of scraps and the spare too. I have just organized my scraps by colour and I am loving them. I am finding the little quilts are great for me. Love your work!!

  • Nancy H says:

    I have been making pillowcases and coloring bags. After your recommendation I did buy the book with red scrappy quilt you made and the lone star.

  • Ryan Walsh says:

    Please enter my name for the drawing. I love the colors you chose and the scrappy appearance gives it lots of character.

    Love the blog! Thanks for sharing Anita!

  • Sarah says:

    Oh boy, I have been admiring that star for weeks and contemplating making one of my own! Currently my scraps are going towards a string quilt that has been in the works for awhile, the never ending project.

    Congrats on your anniversary!

  • Sbme says:

    Me. Me. Me. Love it.

  • Alexis says:

    Oh, I love that star with the checked background! Happy blogiversary! I’, making a baby string quilt and a liberated wedding ring with my scraps.

  • Dena says:

    ACK. I love this mini. It is BEAU- TI- FUL!
    I am working on a quilt from from sorbet stuff I had laying around. It may be called Sorbet Blizzard- thanks to all this snow. My blogiversary is also this month so check with me.

  • Your mini is just beautiful! I am trading scrappy blocks with a friend to make a large bed quilt. We will make our final trade soon and then I’ll have a big bunch of blocks to assemble. Happy Blog Anniversary!

  • Katy says:

    Oh jeez, I need a paper bag – I’m hyperventilating. You’re giving that away?

    I’m actually using up my scraps at the minute – me and my friend are making something quilty, but it’s slightly secret. And those patchwork scottie dogs, I think I need a whole dog pound full. I WILL get those darn scraps used up, if it kills me.

    I love that mini lone star – I would marry it if I could. Maybe I could propose on Valentine’s? Hmm….

  • corinnea says:

    I love the lone star pattern and have yet to be brave enough to try it myself…. I would love to take care of this one for the rest of my life.

    Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous quilt and for the chance to actually win it!

  • pam says:

    I love that miniquilt. Brights with black and white,what more could a girlask for? I want to make a string quilt and a ticker tape quilt with my scraps, and some tiny house blocks.

  • Bronwyn says:

    Wow! I saw the tiny photo of this quilt in the DQS8 Flickr and it caught my eye instantly – I would loooovvveee to win it! It is absolutely gorgeous! I am in the middle of a swap of mini whirly gigs, which don’t take much fabric so I am using lots of little pieces from my stash. Thanks for the chance to win yours – I am seriously crossing my fingers and toes.

  • You did such a great job on this project and your scraps are awesome.

    I am up to my ears in valentines, wonky stars, and crazy blocks to help cut down on my scraps!

    Have a great Valentine’s day!

  • coloradolady says:

    congrats on your anniversary…, this would be perfect at our cabin in Colorado…it is beautiful!! I am crossing my fingers for sure!

    Honestly, I have not made a thing with my scraps, in fact, I just keep adding to them….it is a problem I have….but soon….I will start a project! I am really hoping I win this!! Love it.

  • Adrienne says:

    Slowly I have been turning my scraps into scrappy string blocks which will one day (probably far into the future) be pieced to make a king size quilt.

  • This is beautiful! My favorite kinds of quilts are scrap quilts. And this one . . .well this one is a real beauty!

  • Lynz Graham says:

    I’m in a scrap-using Bee and that fair uses them up but I *just* finished a scarf for a friend’s birthday. It’s so satisfying to use all those wee bits!

  • Oh, I have the perfect spot for this fabulous little quilt in my entryway! Will give it a loving home!!!

  • Kathleen says:

    oh my scraps — my favorite thing to do with scraps is crib quilts. — it is always a joy to make something new with ‘this and that’ from other projects.

    your star is wonderful!!

  • Norma says:

    wow! that mini quilt is so beautiful. I use my scraps for all sorts of projects. The last 2 projects made from scraps were dolls and some fabric covered button hair ponies.

  • Christine says:

    love to win your mini quilt…your blog is very inspiring…I’m making a scrappy log cabin…great saying – no fabric is harmed in the making of this quilt!

  • Donna Weible says:

    Saw this fabulous little quilt on the flickr DQS8 group….I absolutely love it! I’d love to have the directions….you took a class? Lucky you! I’m doing a kaleidoscope quilt with my scraps, but will keep this in mind for a future project…love it!

  • Karen says:

    Utter gorgeousness! I’m making yet another doll quilt potentially for the swap…that makes four, or is it five? Too much fun!

  • mari idland says:

    A lovely quilt, with all those little scraps.

    I use my scraps to make potholder, coasters and I use them for applike.
    And I collect them!

    Have a lovely day !

    From Norway,

  • Ok, here from DQS8 just to confirm you are actually giving this gorgeous work away. Apparently you have not come to your senses between uploading to Flickr and posting your blog, so I have no choice but to throw my hat into the ring because, well, I just LOVE this star. Love it. I’m making fabric postage stamps from my scraps (for my fabric valentine envelopes!). There’s a tute on my blog today.

  • Judy Holt says:

    I am so impressed, I check out your sight regularly, you have a great sense of color. I would love this quilt so if it is ok count me in on the drawing. I cannot believe that you are giving it up. That is what I call sacrificial giving!

  • Mandy says:

    oh Anita, you are so generous to give this beauty away! I dearly love it, and would be ecstatic if it came to live with me!
    Most of my scraps are going towards a ticker tape quilt. I also like to sew small scraps together and then sew it onto a greeting card, I usually pop one into my swap parcels.
    How many days until the 13th?
    x Mandy

  • Erin says:

    What a beautiful mini! Right now I have my scraps cut into 1.5 inch blocks and I am using them as Leaders and Enders. I’m also saving strings to make a string quilt.

    Aren’t you happy now that you used the dark fabric for the outside? It is lovely!!!! Happiest thing I have seen all day!

  • Mama Spark says:

    This is a great quilt! I love scrappy and I love lone stars too. I like to make coin quilts with my scraps when they are big enough. Great blog!! I just found you through Flickr.

    It is an inspiration for scraps!

    I am still gathering scraps to do something with. I have now made about 20 quilts and so I probably have enough to start scrappy projects now, but the quilts for family and friends are still getting in the way of playing with scraps.

  • Kris says:

    Oh my goodness, this is stunning! I would LOVE to have it in my sewing space to inspire me. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Thanks again for the give away I love your quilt it is beautiful.

  • Kolleen says:

    This is so beautiful–and far beyond my patience quotient. Currently I’m playing with windmill/whirlygig block and my scraps. Goodness knows I have enough scraps for an entire bed quilt!

  • jo says:

    It is a beauty…I had admired your larger one and was thinking it just might send me over the edge to make a star quilt….I’ve wanted one for a long time and hubby even has admired them. You know when hubby admires them, it’s the pattern to pick. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Your star is beautiful! Happy blog anniversary this month!!

  • Meredith says:

    My last scrap quilt was a log cabin made from left overs from a few breast cancer quilts I gave away. The scraps gave me a nice memory. Your quilt turned out so well. The brights look great against that background.

  • AmandaJean says:

    Anita, the quilt is fantastic!!! Hurray for using up scraps! I’ve been working on my scraps, too. I’m making a scrap quilt made up of 5″ (unfinished) pieced blocks….the challenge, especially for me, I’m not using any plain white. It’s been fun. I still have a long way to go to make it into a lap quilt. And no shortage of scraps to use. 🙂

  • isabel says:

    I wich so much that it come to me…Lovely Anita, as allways!

  • Heather says:

    I just finished making a quilt out of scraps for a great little girl, and gave it to her anonymously. She loves it!!!

  • Krista says:

    I love your mini quilt as well as your other posts! Great job!

    I currently have a few scrap projects I’m working on. I’m working on a string star quilt, a paint box quilt, and a confetti quilt with my tiny pieces. I’m also making potholders with leftovers from a jelly roll.

    My scraps have been out of control so I thought I’d better get to it!

  • Wendz says:

    Can’t believe you really going to give this away, but seeing as your are I’d be really really happy to receive this cookie tin of M&M’s.

  • that’s so beautiful! please put me in the running!!

    let’s see…what am I doing with my scraps. Well, I just finished a scrappy baby quilt ( and now I’m about to attempt some paper piecing of a little heart quilt with some scraps!!

  • Jessica says:

    this is gorgeous!
    i can’t decide what to do with my scraps so i just keep adding to the pile…this is a great idea.

  • Ranette says:

    Oh my gosh this is a gorgeous little quilt! I love it and I want it. If I don’t win this quilt I may be making one very similar with my scraps very soon :o)

  • Sara says:

    What I wouldn’t do to win this piece. It’s really and truly art!

    Scraps – I have a problem cutting in to my fabric which means I don’t create many scraps! What scraps I do have right now will be turned into my DQS8 quilt, I hope!

  • LauraJ says:

    This mini quilt needs MY home! 🙂

  • Holly says:

    Lovely, lovely, lovely!

    I just made some bunting for my son’s bedroom from my scrap bin (leftovers from his quilt and one made for my sister). I am also hoping to undertake a string quilt in the not too distant future!

  • Donna says:

    Super great! My latest scrap project was for DQS8: a rainbow hex mini quilt . .

  • Anne says:

    Love the Star! Please pick me to win this. Oh, Happy Blogiversary, congrats.
    My scraps are being used to make potholders and notebook covers.

  • Jeannie says:

    Gorgeous and generous – what a gal! My scraps are being guarded by the cats as they think the bin is “just right” for a nap spot. The teeny scraps are being used by the squirrel family to build an addition. I have been crocheting the scraps into coasters. Have a great week!

  • It’s gorgeous! I’ve got 2 scrap projects on the go at the moment…a quilt for Project Linus and an appliquéd quilt for me.

  • quiltiferous says:

    Scrap happy! Just beautiful work!!

  • kendra says:

    I’m working out of the book -Quilting with Strips and Strings – by Helen Whitson Rose. Currently i’ve got blocks for Twilight and windmills going in addition my sister and I are both going to work on string stars and going to just go through this book until we can get rid of the scraps. ( or greatly reduce.) I have also finished 3 toothbrush rugs and am working on the 4th. I bought a bit of “skull” fabric to finish a specific quilt , but all the rest will come from scraps and strings. your work is beautiful , as ever. . thanks for the inspiration!


  • sharon says:

    THis is a beautiful little quilt.

  • Pokey says:

    Oh please count me in, it’s beautiful! I have a few scrap projects: strips; yo-yo circles for a friend; and a little baby quilt top, this one all florals and pink.
    Happy Blogoversary!

  • jennifer says:

    This is gorgeous! I’m not much of a scrap user, but last weekend I made a tiny Sawtooth star block and loved it so much I actually considered using scraps to make more.

    I would love to hang this quilt on my wall. I can’t believe you don’t want to keep this for yourself.!

  • Wendy says:

    What a fabulous quilt! Anyone would be proud to own this one!! Lovely, lovely work ❤

  • tinasquirrel says:

    That’s gorgeous! I love it! I don’t really “save” my scraps for anything but I try to use them up as I go along. Usually they find their way into things like quilted coasters, or I use them for applique shapes on kid t-shirts, or I just started making cards with fabric appliques, and they work great for that!

  • 2hippos says:

    Gorgeous! I love the star and all the delightful scraps. It would look lovely on my bedroom wall 🙂

  • joan says:

    I celebrate your anniversary big time. It is you who finally got me to start a blog, I am still not as good as I should be but I am in there trying. Here is hoping I will have a 7 year anniversary. Many thanks for the inspiration. Wow how would I ever come up with something so special to give away. Hope I am the lucky one.

  • Corey says:

    Oh, I love this! I have been using some scraps up using a design that I saw over on red pepper quilts–and you can never go wrong with string quilts!

  • Jenna Z says:

    Oh wow! What a wonderful, generous girl you are! Thanks for the chance to win, I wish I had enough scraps to make quilts upon quilts, but somehow my scraps are always….very scrappy, aka short, ugly or cut to shreds.

  • Nancy V. says:

    What a great giveaway. I love the colors. And I’m from the Lone Star state. I’m making a Many Trips Around the World scrap quilt from the free pattern at Quiltville.

  • Deb Myers says:

    Spectacular quilt!! ~~ And all those diamonds didn’t offend you?
    What am I making with my scraps? Why, I’m making my scrap basket FULLER!! ha-ha-ha~~Seriously, I just can’t decide what to do w/ them~~ too many ideas! I must decide. I must decide. I must…….

  • Janet says:

    I’ve been working on some quilted potholders that don’t require binding. It hasn’t worked out very well but I’m trying new techniques and hopefully I’ll get a good result soon.

  • shelly says:

    January was a big scrap sewing month for me. I made a wallhanging, a tablerunner, potholders and a snippets baby quilt all out ouf my scraps (and I still have a bunch of scraps left.)

    This is stunning! (I came from the Doll Quilt Swap site where I drooled over this beauty!) I would give it a wonderful home.

    I’m working with scraps to make valentine cards with patchwork hearts.

    Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous work of art!


  • Debbie says:

    I love the vibrant colors and the black outline just makes the star pop.

    I recently got two bags of old neckties and have taken them apart. Now I am just trying to find a pattern I like. I think this made of the ties with some black would be awesome!

  • Marianne says:

    I would love a piece of Anita’s art…I love it! It’s gorgeous. What am I doing with my scraps? The latest thing I did was make a pair of small underpants for my son’s stuffed lion. The purpose, you ask? Potty training instruction. Oh, yeah…it’s that season of life here. 🙂 I would love to win the quilt!

  • Kim says:

    Oh I would love to win this! It’s fantastic! I’m going to use my scraps for an uber scrappy log cabin quilt!

  • Debbie says:

    I love the mini star quilt you’ve made and I would be honored to own it. It is scraptastic!

    I’ve cut some of my scraps into 1.5 inch squares and use them as leaders and enders. I eventually hope to have a colorized postage stamp quilt. The pile seems to grow ever so slowly.

  • Jamie V says:

    Wow. What a fantastic treasure this is! Right now my scraps are being used by my 11 yr old daughter for handmade Valentine’s. Usually she goes the ‘store-bought’ route, but decided on her own to delve into the scrap tub and make up her own collage creations! I’m so proud. Jamie V in MT

  • Jackie says:

    What a cute quilt! I love that you said no fabric was harmed!

    Right now my scraps are being used to make individual blocks for a BOM on Ravelry (a knitting community). I’m enjoying it!

    I’d love to be entered into your giveaway!

  • Oh, I just LOVE this! I am saving tiny scraps for a tickertape quilt and then squares for a scrappy HST values quilt.

  • sarah says:

    I used my scrap basket on my DQS8 quilt. But my mind is too amazed at what you made here to even think properly. That quilt is epic. EPIC!

  • dee says:

    Love this lone star-tried to make one and I failed miserably. This would make me feel so much better and it would look so lovely in my new sewing room….I’m just sayin”
    Seriously, I’m working on a scrappy Kaffe top and a pinwheel baby quilt at the moment.

  • Holly says:

    I’m making a string quilt from a large bag of scraps that somebody gave me (of course I have scraps of my own but these were different!) and I sew and I sew and I sew and the bag never empties……….

  • Helen says:

    Ohhhh, hope I am not too late to be in the running for this beauty! What a generous giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  • Carmen Rigby says:

    This little quilt is gorgeous! I have just the perfect spot to display it in… 🙂

    Thank you!

  • Carmen Rigby says:

    oops forgot to tell you I’ve made two potholders with my scraps! I’ve got enough scraps to make, oh, about 15 more!!

  • rebecca says:

    Does planning on using my scraps count? No project in mind yet.

  • Asiyah says:

    OMG…I love this! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • How beautiful! It would fit in perfectly in our home in the Lone Star state! What a wonderful use of scraps.

  • Alycia says:

    Ihave been using all my scraps in string blocks – which I have finally made enough blocks to make a top. TODAY!! yay. Love your mini quilt.

  • Natalie Putnam says:

    WOW! What an amazing giveaway. I like to use all my scraps to make flowers or attempt to make quilts. I am not very good at it.


  • GeeGee says:

    Oh, I do love the mini star quilt and what a delight it would be to win! I am making a scrappy sampler row x row quilt.
    Happy Blogiversary!!
