Scraps, Inc. Vol 2 Cover

I loved contributing to the Scraps, Inc. Vol. 1 book so I was eager to make a quilt for the new Scraps, Inc. Vol. 2 as well!

My quilt is called Fletching because it is a highly stylized depiction of fletchings, or the feathers at the end of an arrow.  I really enjoyed settling on the color palette and digging through my stash for lots of scrappy prints.  Remember, a scrappy quilt can still have a palette, in fact, I think it’s often the key to success!  I used a mint green solid for my background and prints in apricot, coral, pink, muted blue, teal, grey and green.  While the block is a simple repeat, the color placement is not and it really adds interest to the quilt and makes the design more dynamic.

I love the way the quilting came out on this quilt.  I quilted with horizontal, evenly spaced lines, with the exception of one section where I echoed the fletching, zig-zag shape.  All the turning was a pain but so worth it!
