Scrappy Plans for Potluck Quilt

This is my box of 3.5" scrap squares.  The lid only just about goes on that tub now so it's time to put these pretties to use.  With another cousin expecting a baby this year and time at a premium around here I'm keeping it simple and small.  My plan is to stitch together a scrappy quilt something similar to this one I found on Pinterest a long time ago.  It's called a Potluck quilt but I think that's more to do with the random fabrics and their placement than an actual pattern name.

I have edited my fabric scraps a little since I don't know if the baby is a boy or girl and I want to avoid anything too girly.

I'm hoping this works, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the low volume pattern in the squares layout becomes a little more evident when the top is properly pieced.  In this picture it's not really as obvious as I had been hoping.  Anyway, let's carry on regardless ...


  1. this will make a lovely baby quilt. Like you I have squares in assorted sizes I am sure enough to make half a dozen quilts I just keep adding my scraps and doing nothing with them

  2. I like this and I can totally see the pattern with the low volume squares! :-)

  3. You are far too organised! Yes, the pattern is clear, but not too much 'in your face' It will be super for the little one!

  4. Lovely, even to have cut all those squares shows how organised you are.

  5. This is beautiful Sarah! I love all the colors and it is so much better than having a rose or blue quilt.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
