Using What You Have :: Scrap Quilting

I’m honored to have a quilt featured today at The Modern Quilt Guild.

This week is ‘Using What You Have’ and they asked my thoughts on scrap quilting and the inspiration for my “Sewing Circle” quilt.

This quilt is the original larger version of my Moda Bake Shop tutorial, Mod Circles Baby Quilt.

Thank you Modern Quilt Guild and hello to those of you visiting for the first time!

xo, Lindsey

  1. Love this quilt, all the white and splashes of color. Wonderful.

  2. wow that is gorgeous!!!

    • Hi from Spain,Thank you, thank you, for this conversation. The eesnsce of improv. for me are your passage quilts and the people who made them.Now, it depends of the intention of the quilters what kind of improv. she makes. I understand Sujata comments are about this. My intention is similar to yours Sherry I hope no to seems pretentious or something like that but I prefer the procces always because the process is a way of knowing myself and to learn to be authetic, just me.I used to hide my quilts from other people because I felt so different from other spanish quilters doing pretty or masterfull quilts. Mines are just natural and simple and this is not much appreciate it seems to me.Neither seems the G. Bends quilters be appreciated for that but I do and very much, in fact I am inspired by their attitude at work. I don’t know now but they used to use whatever at hand and that’s so resourceful and inteligent to me.

  3. I’m currently making 2 circle quilts for a set of twins!

  4. That’s awesome, Lindsey!! Congratulations 🙂

  5. Ooh, I love it! Great way to flip a string quilt on its head, and eclelxent way to show off a favorite fabric.All that straight-line quilting can be SO tedious! I just did some on my son’s toddler-bed-sized quilt, and even though it only took a few days, it felt like forever. So worth it in the end, though.I agree with Sarah C’s suggestion set a small goal of what you want to accomplish each day and then maybe you won’t have to dwell on the entirety.

I truly appreciate your comments, thank you for taking the time to leave one! Lindsey
