Rainbow Quilts for Scrap Lovers

Rainbow Quilts for Scrap Lovers

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


If you have volumes of fabric scraps, today you’re going to learn how to sort your fabric stash into useable pieces. You might be surprised to find the fabrics you need to create scrap quilts at your fingertips. Please join me as I welcome Judy Gauthier, scrap-quilting aficionado to this new episode of Sewing With Nancy.

Rainbow Quilts for Scrap Lovers is the title of Judy’s newest book release with C&T Publishing; it’s also the focus of the new two-part series, of the same title, on Sewing With Nancy.

Packages, Boxes, and Bows Quilt

Judy shows us how to separate odd-shaped scraps by color, then create quilts with the scraps. Her quilt, Packages, Boxes, and Bows shows us why it’s important to separate fabrics by color. While revisiting scraps of fabrics, Judy was able to divide my stash into a rainbow of color. Once the fabrics were chosen, the piecing was a joy!  

Color Brick Road

If you have leftovers from making Packages, Boxes, and Bows, consider creating yet another quilt from your stash, entitled Color Brick Road. Small rectangles are cut in two sizes and the colors are sorted using the rainbow graduation as your guide. Just like Judy, you might find yourself chanting “Follow the color brick road, follow the color brick road.” Watch as we make this quilt on Sewing With Nancy.

Fretwork Quilt

Today, on Sewing With Nancy, learn how to make fretwork designs. This quilt style was originally carved from wood to adorn furniture or musical instruments using a fretsaw. The same geometric style can be translated into a quilt pattern, using a rotary cutter and fabric scraps. The technique is reversible appliqué. Learn how to sort your fabrics into 5-1/2″ and 4-1/2″ squares, and then let the fun quilt-making process begin!

 

Rainbow Quilts for Scrap Lovers Starter Kit

You’ll feel like you’ve taken a trip over the rainbow with scrap-friendly quilt designs, using techniques Nancy calls remarkable because, “Not a scrap goes to waste.” Book includes clever tips for organizing your scraps and assembling quilts, along with 12 colorful patterns. Kit includes book, Fast2Cut Simple Squares Template, and Sewing With Nancy DVD.

  • Debra Williams
    October 19, 2017

    My scrap stash has a rainbow of colors, but I would have to say the color I have the MOST of is pink – for some reason I am drawn to pink. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Nancy Ballard
    October 19, 2017

    I probably have blues in my stash than any other color. I would enjoy making a rainbow quilt.

  • Linda Horn
    October 19, 2017

    I have a lot of blues and teals; they seem to have a gravitational pull for me! I have to almost force myself to look at other colors in the quilt shop!

  • Thunder
    October 19, 2017

    I never met a green I didn’t like

  • Karen
    October 19, 2017

    I love prints (a lot multicolored) which I am having a very hard time organizing. I keep trying though.

  • Mary
    October 19, 2017

    Most of mine are on the dark side of blues and greens.

  • Nancy McFarland
    October 19, 2017

    I love all colors, but I’m sure that pink is the most predominate color in my huge fabric stash…it know is it in my sorted scraps!

  • BevM
    October 19, 2017

    I already sort my fabrics by color or style. I have a full copy machine paper box of blues, but three boxes of Christmas fabrics.

    Red

  • Helen O
    October 19, 2017

    Love these ideas for using up scraps. The drawer with my blue fabric is the most full!

  • Mary Gilmore
    October 19, 2017

    My stash is heavy into blues and reds, so this would be the perfect quilt to use them up, if that ever really happens!

  • Bernice M.
    October 19, 2017

    My stash is predominately fabrics in shades of blue.

  • Ennis A
    October 19, 2017

    A lot of purple and red from projects for myself and a lot of pink, yellow and green from granddaughter projects. So I’m ready for a rainbow Quilt. Would love to try this. Thanks for the idea!! I need to downsize the scraps!!

    October 19, 2017

    I have to say purple and green. I have been collecting scraps of fabric for the past year to use when I make this years mystery quilt with my quilt guild. Can’t wait to see how it turns out

  • phyllis hazen
    October 19, 2017

    since i love fall and Halloween and the colors of that season that’s what i have the most of. it’s a tie between reds and oranges .

  • Gayle Mitchel
    October 19, 2017

    I normally prefer blues, but lately I think my stash is trending toward purples! Seems I always have the hardest time keeping accent colors, like yellow, red, orange on hand. Guess that means I keep using them upand will have to get more! LOL!!

  • Liz Jefferys
    October 19, 2017

    without sorting, I can’t be sure, but I think green would be the winner

  • phyllis hazen
    October 19, 2017

    orange

  • Susan L.
    October 19, 2017

    I’d have to say red.

  • Donna Steele
    October 19, 2017

    Blue is the main color of my stash.

  • Vicky K.
    October 19, 2017

    All shades of blue!

  • Janie
    October 19, 2017

    It would be a toss up between red and green.

  • Beverly Smith
    October 19, 2017

    My most likely predominant color is red but I have a good selection of most colors. As a combo, fall colors would be the best bet.
    Thank you Nancy for all your years of tips, tricks and instruction. I’ve been sewing with you since the 70’s.

  • Carol L.
    October 19, 2017

    My fabric stash tends to lean towards shades of Turquoise and Fuchsia.

  • Jeanne Reseburg
    October 19, 2017

    Jewel tones

  • Gina M
    October 19, 2017

    I *love* scraps more than yardage! My red scraps generally overflow the container, until the next project.

  • Laura
    October 19, 2017

    I’ve got alot of blue-greens.

  • Kathleen Sergas
    October 19, 2017

    Currently it looks like oranges….

  • DEBBIE HANKS
    October 19, 2017

  • Elaine Howsley
    October 19, 2017

    I have a ton of blues and greens. I can’t resist them. I am trying to branch out and get oranges and yellows because those are the ones I go to the least when shopping! I love the quilts in this book!! Great ideas!

  • KayZee
    October 19, 2017

    I have multi-colored prints, primarily, and also find it difficult to sort them by color. I think this book would help me do that. I love the “Packages, boxes and bows” pattern!

  • jenny boettcher
    October 19, 2017

    Does all colors fit the bill; lets see…..#1 Fall colors, then the rest all fall into play; hardest color to work with is yellow…..

  • Barb
    October 19, 2017

    I have more black and white fabrics. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I have been a fan since your show on black and white TV. I’m surprised my grandkids don’t sew. Cartoons had to wait when your show came on.

  • LoAnn Trowbridge
    October 19, 2017

    Since I have been collecting greens for one quilt, yellow for another, and red for another, it’s a toss up. But normally it would be all shades of BLUE.

  • Mary Merchant
    October 19, 2017

    Blues and purples

    October 19, 2017

    I love scrap quilts, and recently made a quilt and used 52 different blues. Then I realized I did not use every blue in my stash.

  • Helene Hanada
    October 19, 2017

  • Donna
    October 19, 2017

    I have blues to make a scrap quilt but oh there is so much of every color and yet not enough neutrals. I sure need help to use up all the mismatch of fabric.

    After finishing a large blue and white quilt, I see mainly blue in the scrap bin, but there are some wild prints in there, too.

  • Sheila Symanski
    October 19, 2017

    I thought my favorite color was blue, but in organizing my scraps by color I found it is definitely red.

  • Phyllis Barton
    October 19, 2017

    I have most of the colors except oranges and browns – sure need to use them up!

  • chris
    October 19, 2017

    in a discussion for a sister and brother quilt where I wanted my siblings to be represented by their favorite color, I had listed myself matched to red. But everyone said “no, your color was Pink!” Later, I looked at my fabric stash and there was PINK, represented in dusty rose, pastels and even a splash of neon pink!

    It was a charming scene-2 old folks in sitting in rocking chairs w/ kitty in front of fireplace! I made a hand-tied coverlet/ matching avocado backing. Bought MORE avocado prints, MORE GREENS, eventually SETTLED on TEALS!!!! TEALS have taken over, but still TONS of other “GREENS”! WOW have MY tastes changed

  • terryb
    October 19, 2017

    There’s a lot of blue; but there is also a lot of beige and tan neutrals destined for a design I’ve been collecting for. I’m sure there will be plenty of scraps left for stash.

  • Brenda Ackerman
    October 19, 2017

    My Father and a quilting friend gave me a lot of their quilting scraps to get me started on my quilting journey. I have never stopped saving scraps and therefor I really do not have an abundance of any one color. This book would be so amazing to create quilts with!

  • Linda R

    Organizing scraps by color sounds like fun. Right now my scraps are organized by size and shape, but I haven’t been inspired to work with them lately. The reds overwhelm all the others!

  • Sandi Corlett
    October 19, 2017

    I’ve always tried to sort my stash by color. At one time, I used the closet organizers used for storing purses because they had clear pockets. Now I no longer have a closet with hanging space in my craft room and I’m in the process of moving things into clear containers. Sometimes I sort scraps into gallon zipper bags. These all make it easy to see what I have.

  • Patti Serenko
    October 19, 2017

    I have a lot of earth tones and pastels. I would love to use them to make something beautiful.

  • TERESA LEE

  • Florence Dupuis
    October 19, 2017

    I have my fabric sorted by color. I think it is a tie between red and blue for the most. I have really collected blues as that is my granddaughter’s favorite color. I am working on her third quilt fence rail pinwheel blocks blue with yellow and white accents.

  • Clovis

  • Linda E in AZ
    October 19, 2017

    At this time, blue is my predominant color (used to be green).
    thanks!

  • Ila Jane Harris
    October 19, 2017

    The predominate color in my stash is green. I love all shades of it from the very vibrant yellow greens to the soft emeralds and mysterious forest greens. They seem to find a way into almost every quilt I make. Grays and taupes are fast becoming a new favorite for the tranquility they impart and how they blend with so many other colors.

  • Jacquelyn Ayers
    October 19, 2017

    Blue batik-which includes streaks of gold and green is the most of one color but I definitely have enough of all colors to make two of the rainbow quilts-throw size- or one large queen-size bed quilt. I would like to win-so thanks for the opportunity and all of the ideas.

  • Joyce
    October 19, 2017

    I just organized my fabrics last week, fully expecting to find myself buried in blues. I organized using ROY G BIV.

    However, much to my surprise, the largest number of fabrics reside in my red stack! (But I did make a closet rainbow)

  • Kris Parsons
    October 19, 2017

  • Jeannie
    October 19, 2017

    I have two bins of blue, so I guess that means I have more blues than any other color, but there are soooo many different shades of blue.

  • Jan N.
    October 19, 2017

    Blues, definitely blues dominate my stash. I have blue-blue, blue-green, green-blue, dusty-blue, bright-blue, aqua-blue, aqua-green, turquoise, blues-that-are-almost-green-but-not-quite. The next dominate color is green with the least being yellow. I do NOT allow myself to purchase anything blue right now! 🙂

    The predominant color in my stash is…. “unknown” due to the need to organize them to determine which is most prominent. I do hope I can still qualify for the DVD as I would love to make some rainbow quilts! (Thank you!)

    I would love to take time to sort my scraps to see what I really have. There may be many blacks and lots of primary colors and there may be reds. Sounds like a project coming soon.

    Though I have too much (really? Is there ever too much?) of all colors, because aqua is my favorite color I seem to collect a ton of it – way more than the others. Love all colors, though!

    browns, didn’t have any so went hog wild and got a bunch. Doesn’t make for much of a rainbow but the patterns would work great for an ombre effect!

    Almost everything I make has red in it. Maybe not the predominant color in the piece, but red in it nonetheless.

  • Denise

    Purple! Earth tones follow. I’m a big fan of Fat Quarter bundles. I’m still learning to coordinate color & patterns and Fat Quarter bundles are really helpful in selecting a beautiful combination of colors & patterns ensuring a lovely, dynamic quilt. The next challenge, of course, is choosing the pattern!

    I definitely love every shade, tone and hue of “green”!
    However, over the years, as I focused primarily on
    batiks….. many different colors and blends of
    colors have exploded the size of my stash.
    GREEN is still my favorite color…..
