A Scrap Fabric Quilt

I was cleaning out my small fabric stash a few months ago and decided to make a quilt using up the scrap pieces I had. Some of the pieces were from things I made for our daughter so using it up felt sweet and nostalgic.

Of course once I got started I realized I only had enough fabric for one side of a quilt! So I needed to purchase more fabric after all.

I went ahead and ordered more fabric on Spoonflower - picking fabrics I liked but that didn't fit in with the colors I was using in our daughter's room.

And after all that I ended up falling in love with the new fabric side versus the scrap fabric side! What began as a frugal use up what I have sweet idea became just another regular quilt project! Ha!

Oh well, I have another quilt for us to use around the house that I like and can be proud of. But was it worth the headache after all? Maybe not!

And this was in the midst of our move and about when our house started to feel chaotic. Yet I had to finish this project I started because I did not want it haunting me in our new home while we were getting settled. Most people would have just quit. And maybe I should have as well. But I persevered.

I do love the color mustard. It is not a shade I am super comfortable with incorporating into our home. So this was a fun project to try a different color scheme than my norm. And perhaps that is the silver lining of it all! Embracing something new.

It is pretty imperfect like all my other quilts but it is good enough. I really could use to go back and fix some things. But at this point done and over with is all I can handle!

Am I leaving you inspired?! lol. Or are you just as stressed and exhausted as I am? Thanks for letting me share friends. Even in the midst of chaos a little beauty can still be found.
