Charity Quilts: Scrap Quilt Challenge Entry….

Mile a Minute Quilt Top

Mile a Minute Quilt Top:

Here is a picture of a charity quilt I made. Let me tell you off the bat the picture is bad because I do not have a good staging area for taking pictures. Try as I could I could not get the quilt to lay straight and true.

The history of this quilt top started over four years ago. My daughter was pregnant and alone at night so I taught how to do some simple quilting techniques. She liked doing the MILE A MINUTE quilt block and we had lots of scraps left over from fabric used at bridal and baby showers. ( We make table runners out of yardage. There is some soiling but we just cut around it. We made three quilts out of that fabric yardage.) We had tons of scraps from the fabrics. We just made block after block adding fabrics from other projects when we felt like it. The sashing in these blocks are also scrappy as we started with one size block and then decided we did not like that size. So we re-sashed all the small blocks then cut them to size. I then assembled the quilt top. Anyways this top is on the way to the quilters.

I have entered this quilt in Sandy of Quilting for the Rest of Us, podcast and blog.


The challenge goes till September so anyone who wants to join the challenge can. The good thing about this challenge is that as long as you use stash fabric and or the project is a UFO that qualifies for being included in the challenge.

Well 5pm by for now…. off to quilt group.
