Rosie's Calico Cupboard
'Left Overs' Scrap Quilt
This is the pattern that we used for our
Camp Reach for the Sky 2002 Quilts
Looking for a way to use up all those wonderful 'left overs'?
This quilt is fun, fast and easy.
Make it out of Regular Cotton or Flannel like the quilt pictured.
Acrylic Tumbler Template is available for purchase
from Rosie's Calico Cupboard
Price $6.95, plus $2.00 shipping and handling.
Hint: If you do not pre-wash your flannel, be sure to make your quilt 10" larger
all the way around to allow for shrinkage.
You can make this quilt as small or as large as you wish.
Mine is 21 Tumblers Across and 17 Rows Down.
For my quilt I collected (40) 5 1/2" Strips.
Be sure to cut strips accurately.
Remember you can use your scraps as long as the template fits on the fabric that you are using.
When using strips, place tumbler on strips and begin cutting them, flip flopping the template as you cut.
Once quilt is the size you wish, you can add a border if you want. You will have to trim off the sides.
I chose to add a black framer and a scrappy border and a scrappy binding.
I assembled the quilt top pictured in one afternoon.
This quilt goes very quickly.
I spent one afternoon sorting and cutting my fabric.
Have fun!
