Welcome to the quilters meet and greet.
Hi, I'm Angela and I am a scrap quilter. I've been a scrap quilter for as long as I can remember. Almost every quilt that I make is scrappy. I'm not sure where all the scraps come from as I never seem to make non scrappy quilts. I keep working to use up all my scraps, and while I use them all up, I just seem to keep making more.
Trying to be more systematic about using up scraps, I decided to start the Rainbow Scrap Challenge several years ago. By choosing one color each month on which to focus, the goal was to encourage more people to use more scraps.
I usually have several quilts going at any one time. I love to work with simple units which can be reused in different ways. These 9 patches were made each month for several years of the RSC. One year I set them on point with framed black and white corners.
On another year I framed the same blocks and alternated them with stars. Mai Tai Sunrise was the result.
For the past several years, I have also designed blocks for a monthly quilt along. This one is my favorite so far. Different 6 inch blocks serve as the center for Sawtooth stars with alternating chain blocks.
I really enjoy this one too. It is just random 6 inch blocks, but it was lots of fun working to come up with new blocks and tutorials each month.
