A Craftsy Quilt Project

I had been eyeing this particular quilt for a while, but was not sure how it was created.  One day Craftsy had a sale on classes I couldn't resist.  This project was demo'd by a Ms. Cracknell, and other projects are also included.  She features Quilt As You Go methods, and I've not used her method previously, but other methods could be easily used.  I trimmed my blocks to 12.5 in.  and stayed with blues and plaids, adding a little orange.   I've seen this one made of tiny little strips as well.  My goal was to use my stuff!  And let's face it, sometimes it's just FUN to watch someone else sew!  


This is 4 x 5 blocks, 48" x 60".  Miraculously, I had the perfect backing, a sports type theme, with sporty words, perhaps for a boy or girl, over 6.   This will be donated to Hugs and Stitches.  The diagonals do not always meet perfectly but that's OK with me.  My "quilting" is simply stitching straight lines on each side of the seams.  

The ongoing kitchen improvements the last 2 weeks has kept me out of my kitchen so this is what I did in the meantime. It's going to be lovely!



  1. Wow! That's a cute quilt. I have this quilt in my scrap bins I'm sure. You know I have to copy this now. Wonderful job! Congrats on this scrappy finish. ;^)

  2. Nice one, Elaine! Actually, your quilts always make me smile and want to get even busier!

  3. This is a great quilt, Elaine. You have such a knack for choosing "scraps" that really work together well. Your hint of orange is perfect.
    Excited for your kitchen reno to be finished!

  4. Blue is a wonderful choice for this scrap quilt. You did a marvelous job! San / Gypsy Quilter Designs

  5. What a lovely quilt. I couldn't imagine how that block was going to turn out until I scrolled to the end of your post. Beautiful!
