Another Row

scrap quilts

Another day another row – row by row it is getting done.  First I lay it on the floor for color placement of the neutral scraps – I’m trying not put a like color next to each other.


When I sewed the sashing on to the blocks I moved it to the living room to work on instead – easier on the knees with carpet!  These two rows were not sewed together at this point – I have the row of sashing laying in between them with cornerstones then stand back to look.


Close up  – I know it might not look like 90 inches but that is what this is with the sashing. – now it is sewed and pressed ready for another row or two today


I love the old fashioned scrappy look of this quilt.  Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Crazy Mom Quilts.

      it is an easy pattern to so it moves so smoothly and quickly

    Yes that scrappy look is easy on the eyes…. so many different colors ..and the difference between small squares and the diagonal. How many more rows?

    • Karen Jul 7, 2017

      there are 5 rows total then a small border

    Oh, as this grows I Iove this pattern even more. I am totally in love with your pretty scraps too. The sashing just finishes it all like frosting on a cake. I hope to start on this quilt after my company goes home next week. Thank you for the beautiful pictures of the quilt and your blog which I enjoy so much. Enjoy your weekend.

      thanks Dottie – this quilt sure is growing on me – I had thought to try machine quilting straight lines on it but I am loving the old fashion look so much I fear it will be going in the to be hand quilted stack which is growing larger by the months!

    Oh how I can relate to you. I agonize over two squares of the same fabric being too close together in the layout.
    It is scrappy and lovely and trust me no one will notice that two blues (or any other color) are too close.

      yes I know it always seems to happen no matter how closely you watch for it – I just noticed today two pieces that were put in wrong – the print is on the back not the front LOL – but it is a white on white print which certainly isn’t very obvious and would only be noticed by someone really looking for mistakes! I left it!!

    Fun! Love your scraps. That’s a great quilt for them. This quilt is on my to-do list someday. Not in the near future though. I’ll have to just sit back and admire yours.

      this way of making the squares larger makes it go a lot faster than the original pattern by Bonnie – it is an easy quilt to make believe it or not! thanks for stopping by

  • Val Reynolds Jul 7, 2017

    These are soooo neat!

    • Karen Jul 7, 2017

      thanks Val!

  • Sarah Jul 7, 2017

    I am loving this pattern! It makes me want to go and sort my fabric out to see if I can do this one too!

      all you need is scrap and one color background or mix like I have – it is easy to do at your own measurements too or tiny like the original pattern

    Karen, I loved these blocks before, but love them even more with the sashing and cornerstones!! I think I may have to start a Tumalo Trails quilt of my own! Sooner, rather than later!! I already have several projects in progress, so why not add another into the mix?! I certainly don’t need to buy any fabric in order to start this one….just need to “go shopping” in my scraps stash….

    • Karen Jul 7, 2017

      I have really been trying to use up my stash of scraps this year – when I cleared out the sewing room in early January for the redo and had to put things in boxes and to other shelves it really showed me just how much I had – and I would like to get rid of some of the old stuff to eventually make room for more new stuff 🙂

  • Janice Jul 8, 2017

    I think I already told you before how much I like the look of this quilt. Yummy scrappiness! How big are the pieces in your version?

    • Karen Jul 8, 2017

      the squares are 2.5 inch and then I squared everything up as my pieces were old and some not accurate – the 9 patches squared to 6.25 inches and that is the size of the hst’s – the big blocks where then squared to 17″ as I am not an accurate piecer! lol
