Top sewn, construction station............

This is what my cabinet looks like while I'm constructing these blocks.  I bring a handful of strips to the area, use them for awhile, go back and get another handful, etc.  Eventually the remainder of the strip is too short so it goes in another pile for new blocks.  The top is sewn together now.

Top is excellent. I got a kick out of someone commenting how you use the first cut off. Hey you paid for it why not. Chris

This top is just so, so terrific! I love everything about it- colors, movement, contrast, variety, it has it's all!
Did you make this pattern up or is it a commercial one?

Love, love, love this top and I know it is even more beautiful in person!

This is a neat quilt. Also a great way to use up the scraps. Hope I remember it when I get ready to start my next scrap quilt. Your Burning bush looks great. I haven't paid to much attention to mine, guess I will have to check them out. Raining today and a good day to sew, sew, sew.

Great new top. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sandie said...

What a great idea for using all those narrow strips which are no use anywhere else! Have to remember this!

Sheila said...

Beautiful, colorful scraps. Thank you for sharing your sewing secrets.
Wow. Great picture of burning bush showing off it's fall colors.

It is always great to see how other quilters work. Love the burning bush. We don't get much color here in Austin.

Marei said...

Love the way the quilt turned out. Unfortunately for me my sewing space almost always looks like that! When I'm working on strings the entire room gets crazy as I pile strips on the floor, too!

Chris said...

Stunning burning bush photo! That would be a gorgeous greeting card or note card.

I can't stop staring at the assembled quilt top. It is 3-D, and it plays wonderful games with my brain!

Vicki W said...

Oh gosh I do love this!

Dolly said...

That's genius !!!

Brown Family said...

I like how they are all different size of strips. You do nit have to worry about seams lining up! Beautiful Bush

I love the three-dimensional effect of your layout and your fall colors are beautiful.

Cathi said...

The top is absolutely stunning! It is so full of life - a really happy quilt!

Ooooo - I really like this one! So much dimension in there.

These are such beautiful blocks- I really love all your rich gorgeous fabrics- it is such a riot of color and made me smile- Your posts always brighten my day even though I am not commenting much these days.
Thanks for sharing your talents.

I so love this project...it is on my bucket list, if OK by you. I smiled when I saw your work area...we have the same process when working on scrappy projects!

I have burning bushes in in my yard...I love them because they are beautiful and the leaves are so tiny that I don't have to rake them (or feel guilty that I have not raked them...).

In stitches, Teresa :o)

Awfully nice quilt. Very tempted to make my own - but I know it didn't even make a dent in your scraps, right? That's what I hate about making scrap quilts, no matter how many scraps I use, I still have as many - or more? - left!

Kelly said...

I love this quilt! Putting it on my list to use up my scrap1s
