Checkerboard Quilt

 I finished a quilt!  I've only worked on it at my Farm Girls quilt group because it's a Lori Holt quilt and that's what we work on in that quilt group. I think I've been working on it for a year!

This quilt is called Checkerboard and is made entirely out of scraps! 

1 1/2" and 2 1/2" scraps.  It didn't even make a dent! The border is leftover border fabric from another quilt I made a while back. 

This pattern can be found in Lori Holt's book, "The Scrappy Project Planner."  There's a section in the back with quilt patterns.

Here are some closeups of my quilt, you may see some fabric that you have in your stash! Sometimes I like to see scrappy up close :)

I even kept a quilt journal for two of my quilts.  I love what I did, too bad I didn't do that for ALL of my quilts!

Hopefully I've inspired you to make a scrap quilt and journal your finished quilts :)

See you all next week ❤️

  1. Love your quilt, Cynthia! So beautiful and yes, love seeing those little fabric pieces up close. I do keep a record of my quilts, but I am such a scribbly writer - that it is mostly jotting down the main facts of the quilt. That project Planner book of Lori's was my favorite, and I have modeled another lined book of hers from that one.
    Looking forward to seeing this quilt top finished - it will be a treasure.
