Scraps, Inc. Vol. 2: Square-rific!

Screenshot 2016-02-10 10.47.30

Hey friends! Checking in today because I finally get to show you pictures of my quilt, Square-rific! Any of you who have stuck around here with me for any amount of time know how much I love little squares. Lots of them. So when I had a chance to make a quilt for the 2nd volume of Scraps, Inc. of course there were lots of little squares involved! (Remember my first Scraps Inc. Quilt? Still one of my very all time favorites.)



I made Square-rific! from my first two fabric lines, Best. Day. Ever! and Meadowbloom, both by Moda fabrics. It was the first project I made mixing the two lines, and I couldn’t have had more fun with it. In fact, my quilt is probably a little brighter than the rest in the book for that reason! I had just gotten my advance yardage for Meadowbloom when I started making this quilt, and I couldn’t help but use it, even if it was just a bit louder than the proposed color scheme. :) Y’all know how I feel about color.


So. Scraps, Inc. Vol. 2. It’s amazing. The designers who contributed are ridiculously talented, the photos are beautiful, and the patterns are awesome. You’re going to want to get your hands on this one. If you have the first Scraps, Inc. book, you already know this.

Lucky for you, there are two ways to get your hands on a copy:

  1. I would love to see your pattern Miss America in miniature. Thanks for the chance to win your fantastic book. Your quilt looks fabulous. The way you set it together is really unique!

  2. I would love to see radiant or modern hex in a mini! Love the bold use of colors and I have tons of square scraps so always looking for inspiration.

  3. Modern Hex or Whirlwind! I would also love to see Dahlia, a single Dahlia, in a lap size quilt, just in case you ever ask the reverse question. All your patterns are beautiful. Thank you for the chance!

  4. I love Square-rific and Solstice best! I love your use of color in all your quilts. I have some of your first lines of fabric!

  5. You know, I’ve never made a mini quilt, but I think the Radiant pattern would be cute as a mini!
    I’d love to win this fun book.

  6. Oh how cool, congratulations! I love the brightness and color of your scrap quilt too! I think whirlwind would make a mighty pretty mini:)

  7. Hi there!
    It was very difficult, but I’d like to see Whirlwind in a mini.
    Really, anything from your fabric lines is always beautiful. Just lovely.
    I’d also love this book. Especially with your work in it.

  8. Love your Scrap-rific, but I want to call it Scrap-alicious! I think a mini Miss America would be da bomb! I may have to click over and get a copy now. *wink!!

  9. I had a great time making a version of your Russian Rubix pattern. I am using some of the leftover octagons for another quilt with 9 patches. I’d love to see a mini version of that quilt. I love the brightness of Squarific!

  10. Would love a mini of modern hexies – if that’s even possible. Thanks so much – the book looks scrapilicous!

  11. I’m obsessed with both Meadowbloom and Solstice, you have my vote! I’ll bet have the world’s largest Meadowbloom stash.

  12. I love Big City: Quilting Pattern # 113 and think it’s be great in a lap size. Thank you for a chance to win. I can’t wait to see the book.

  13. Not to be a pain but I don’t really like minis so I wouldn’t be a great one to advise. I like to make big quilts so they are useful not just decorative. But I love to use scraps. I just made a scrappy bag and IPad cover using both of your lines. Love them and you. Thanks.

  14. i like modern hex as a mini. i don’t do mini but my friend loves to do them and a lot of your patterns would make great minis

  15. Hard to choose one, but I would love to see Twinkle in miniature sizes! The new book looks wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  16. I am loving the quilts you all did in this 2nd volume!
    I would love to see Mind Gap in a mini … and several others even though I’d never be able to make them!

  17. Thank you for this giveaway chance. I’d love to see the grand parade in a mini. I love that quilt. This new book sounds like a treasure for my sewing room.

  18. yes I believe I love color just as much as you apparently do. Yay to color. I love the Solstice quilt. Could you possibly do that in a mini version?

  19. Hi April, yes you do love little cute and tidy in all your quilts. Thank you for sharing. I’d like
    First Date in a mini. I’d frame ’em and give to brides-to-be as a shower gift or on their wedding anniversary to remind of ’em of their true love.

  20. I like your Squares quilt. Have always been a fan of postage stamp type quilts, but I suppose there’s a limit as to how “mini” you can make them. Personally I like quilts that one can warp up and snuggle in. Would love to win this book.

  21. This is my first visit to your blog but won’t be my last! I really like your patterns so it was hard to narrow it down to one for a mini quilt pattern. But, I think Parcheesi would make a fabulous mini quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of the new book.

  22. Square-rific, love how it sparkles. So happy looking as I sit here watching it snow! Looks like my garden in the summer

  23. This looks like the perfect solution to my overflowing scrap problem that is overtaking my quilting space …. love your blog.

  24. I love grand parade and flirty! I have them both but minis would be so fun! I love your fabric and your bright quilt.

  25. I think your Prep School or Twinkle would be great in a Mini!! And I didn’t realize that you had designed both of those fabric lines: I have them both and now I know I can combine them! They look so pretty together in your quilt! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

  26. I’ve love Dahlia since it first came out, so I would love to see a mini version of it. Love the new fabric too. Thanks for all you do to keep the world beautiful!

  27. Flirty would be SO cute (and probably challenging!) what will all those LITTLE pieces…that you enjoy SO much! LOL!!!

  28. I would love to see a mini Dahlia block for a mini. I’m thinking it would look amazing on my wall. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  29. I would LOVE Dahlia in a mini form. I’m obsessed with minis – have been for years. I’m so glad they are coming back.

    I just finished Parcheesi and it was a wonderfully fun pattern! :-)
