Free Pattern – Scraps, Inc.


Scraps, Inc. imageThis pattern by Linda K. Johnson and her grandson, Griffin, incorporates scraps into a beautiful quilt that is so much fun to make, you may want to cut new scraps! The scraps are pieced onto foundation fabric that stabilizes the bias edges and remains a permanent part of the quilt. Try making this as a large bed quilt, too. The foundation fabric will make it extra warm and cozy.

Fabric Requirements for a small quilt measuring approximately 36″ x 48″ (perfect for a small child’s quilt!):

Lightweight foundation fabric: 1⅝ yards (We used muslin.)

An assortment of MANY light, medium, and dark fabrics, the more the merrier: 4½ yards total

A true scrap quilt will incorporate all different fabrics: plaids, florals, batiks, whatever is left over from any previous quilts, and so on. However, you may also plan your scrap quilt by theme or color, such as a baby quilt, ’30s fabrics, homespun plaids, holiday fabrics, etc. You will achieve the best look by including light, medium, and dark values and mixing in large and small prints. Feel free to make larger blocks for big bed quilts. (And be sure to check out the heart version on the last page of the pattern!)

Backing: 1⅔ yards

Batting: 42″ x 56″

Binding: ¼ yard
