Scrappy Goodness

First Block

I think I mentioned Katy's Techinicolour Yawn Quilt once or twice on this blog, although I usually refer to it as the Scrap Vomit Quilt (Katy's own words). There is something incredibly satisfying about sewing 49 random fabric squares together. This is Block A. Block B has a diamond pattern of solids. I traded and was kindly donated scraps so in this block alone there are 18 fabrics that I received from other people, isn't that great? Also, I try to combine not so exciting scraps with a few of my all time favourite prints.

et voila!

This is Katy's wonderful Technicolour Yawn Quilt. Clearly I need to find someone to quilt it for me if I decide to make it as large as this one!

In other news: my friend Annie has a fun giveaway on her blog right now. She is celebrating her 500th blog post and there are lovely Bird and Little Bird items to be won (like the Semi-Fantastic Mr. Fox pattern) and some of my stuff too (Castle Peeps Pattern and voucher)! So hop over and say hi!


  1. I *love* that quilt of Katy's - all of her quilts really! I'm sure yours will be just as good. :-)

  2. Why do I have a feeling that if I tried this it would never turn out THAT cool?? It certainly IS inspiring :)

  3. It's a lot of work but so much fun to do!
    @Corinne I'm sure you can make one that looks at least as nice! If you'd like to swap some squares let me know :)

  4. This is beautiiiful! Lovely. Worth the hours you will have it for life. xxx

  5. Do you need more scraps? You can email me at if you do ^_^
