Kids scrap quilt ONE

I sewed all the scraps together and trimmed them down to 9" blocks.
Here is the layout I chose. 
Now to add the sashings..


I knew I was wanting to make a few scrap quits and needed a fabric to join it all together. 
A trip to spotlight was needed. I saw this aqua fabric and thought it would be perfect. 
Even better it was priced at $4 per metre. So I got 3 metres cut..
When it was put through the register it came up as $2 per metre. I quickly asked for the rest of the bolt. I ended up with 7.5 metres.. Not bad for $15..


Then I border only 2 sides of each block with 2" strips. 
Trimmed to 10", joined them and added a
I am happy with how the aqua spots are so different to all the blocks. 
It measures about 36" x 44".. I'll measure it properly when I go to quilt it.



This is what I will,be using as the backing.
 It is a whimsical bright fabric that has been given to me.


Now put it aside and get started on the next one...

I love your scrap blocks, Jo. You have used your gifted scraps so well. And your bonus at Spotlight was super! I have never struck so lucky - $2 dollars a meter is ridiculous! Pe haps next time they will pay you to take it off their hands!!

What a great bargain! The aqua dots are prefect with these crap blocks, and 7.5m should do a few more as well.

I love the layout for for blocks - there is such movement - I saved it to my idea file. The polka dots bring it all together nicely- and such a bargain for the fabric! Some little kid is going to adore this quilt.
