Scrappy Brick Quilt Stash Buster

Bonnie K Hunter Fun With Bricks

This Scrappy Brick Quilt is a great way to use up scraps. Or do like me, buy more fabric to make some new scraps. And then I wonder why my scrap quilts never put a dent in my scrap pile. LOL Just because something has a lot of different fabric in it, doesn’t always make it a scrap buster, if the pieces are too small, however, this quilt will do it. The rails are narrow which allows for the best use of fabric.

Simple brick layouts come together quickly, but unless you have a perfectly planned color scheme, scrap quilts can get a little too busy and mooshy with no resting place for the eyes.

I saw this scrappy brick quilt this morning that uses white blender prints between the bricks. WOW! It really makes those colors pop, no matter what kind of scraps you’re using. Plus, those light colored blocks can even BE your color scheme. This quilt is also framed it perfectly with the two borders.

I’ve been reviewing my Pinterest quilting pins for ideas for a new baby quilt, but I’ve had a hard time finding something that’s goes together quickly AND has visual impact.

This is the perfect project for all my color coordinated and theme categorized bins of scraps. I’ve also been making fussy cut 5″ squares that would work as a perfect substitution for a few of the rail blocks. I can’t wait to get started.
