collection scrap quilt //2

Megan Nielsen Collection scrap quilt //2

You guys, i really like this quilt! So this is another collection scrap quilt – made using the leftovers from my AW2010 collection, the “Perth collection”. I really feel like this quilt gives the same vibe as that collection – I am so in love with the idea of using up my collection scraps in quilts. I love mementos! Can you tell i’m excited!!

I tried really hard to do a better job with this quilt, and i feel like my quilting is improving very slightly with each one i do (Here is the first quilt i ever made for Bunny, the second i made for Buddy and also the collection scrap quilt #1). I decided to hand quilt this one – and *cough* – i’m not sure i’ll ever hand quilt again. You guys it took ages! I actually gave up and didn’t do even half as many lines of hand stitching as i had planned. Ugh so lame! hehehe. Also it’s wrinkly as all hell, and i don’t know why, and i also kind of don’t care. Is that bad?

But regardless of my laziness, this is my favourite quilt so far. I looooove it! I didn’t have enough scraps from the Perth collection to make a queen size quilt, so instead i just made a smaller one to use on the couch. We like blankets in the family room :)

This one really wore me out with how long it took, so i think i’m going to take a bit of a break before tackling the next collection scrap quilt (which will be from this collection). What do you think?!

Lovely! I’ve never hand quilted but the stitches really finish it off. I think the next will be even better -the fabrics and colours in that collection are beautiful! …is that turquoise skirt a curved hem ‘Kelly’?

This is lovely. I’ve never made a quilt before but I’ve been saving up all my favs of my little girls dressess in order to make her a quilt from them. I love the pattern of this one.

Memories are what quilting is all about. Hand quilting does take ages but the effect is wonderful!

I think I love this even more than your first collection quilt. Makes we want to grab one of mine and snuggle up on the couch.

Your fabric stretched – thus the wrinkles. It is beautiful. The pattern is flying geese. Quilts are not held up and admired as much as they are used to wrap up in, comfort and warm the soul. This one will no doubt do the job very well. Can’t wait to see the next one.
