A Scrappy Life Throw Quilt in Bonnie and Camille!

Today I'm sharing a new quilt pattern with you - meet A Scrappy Life!  



My Favorite Fabrics!

A Scrappy Life is made with my favorite fabrics - Bonnie and Camille!  I pulled from my collection of various B&C lines to make this Throw size quilt.  The border fabric is from The Good Life, and the backing is a floral print on navy from the Smitten collection.

You'll find The Good Life fabric right here, and you'll find Smitten fabric right here

I used Kona Nautical for the background, setting triangles, and binding.  Nautical is my favorite navy fabric, and it coordinates with so many fabric collections.  I purchase it by the bolt from Fat Quarter Shop.



There is a story behind this quilt...

This A Scrappy Life quilt was actually made in June of 2020 while I was sequestered in our shop after returning home from a trip in which I had potentially been exposed to the virus.  This wasn't a very happy time in my summer.  It was very lonely being out there by myself.

The upside is that I set up my sewing out there, and I sewed a lot and worked on patterns that needed written.

Why ever it took me until last week to get this quilt quilted, I have no answer!  But at least she is completed and oh, so snuggly!




Includes 4 Sizes!

The A Scrappy Life quilt pattern includes four sizes - Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.  This quilt is the Throw size.  

Most all of my patterns include multiple sizes.  I give you as many options as is possible so my patterns have true value for you.



Fat Quarter Friendly!

A Scrappy Life is fat quarter friendly!  This is great news for those who want to use their stash and/or simply pick up a fat quarter bundle and get started right away.  This quilt is made with Bonnie and Camille fat quarters I've had in my stash for awhile.

This pattern would also work great as a scrappy quilt!



Quilting Design

A Scrappy Life was quilted by me on a HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher using navy thread.  The simple, yet very effective, quilting design is Woven Wind, available here.  I love this design!  It looks really nice and is very easy to line up on the longarm.



This is A Scrappy Life in Violeta by Connecting Threads.  You can find this quilt kit right here.  It's the Twin size.  Photo credit Connecting Threads.
