Clare Worthy put a photo of this amazing scrap quilt on Facebook today - I think it's fantastic and just had to write a little blog post about it. What a brilliant way to use up scraps. Clare's blog post is here - with loads more photos (I asked her if I could borrow one to show here).
Somehow this 'lego quilt' idea isn't something I'd heard about, although I love making patchwork with scrap strips. It's a bit busier than the 'Shimacho' or 'Kamon' (the Shimacho variation) from 'Japanese Quilt Inspirations' but works on a similar 'block' basis - although the 'block' isn't obvious with so many pieces. BTW, although some of the strips in those quilts look pieced, the fabrics included faux patchwork prints.
Clare posted a link to 'Lazy Gal' Tonya Ricucci's version too, which is, in turn, inspired by an antique strip quilt on 'Quilting with the Past'. I love the idea that these quilts have an antique ancestor. Tonya coined the name 'lego quilt' which is a very good description.
Could be a good clear out project for the winter evenings...
