Medallion Strings

This is the final quilt I made to clear out my scrap bin: a medallion Chinese Coins/piano keys/strings. Take your choice. It's interesting to see the crossover of names.

CCIV: Medallion

More information here. Now to start filling that bag again.

Enjoy the day, Ann

I canNOT believe you totally cleared out your scrap bin??? Whoa, Nellie (LOL) Mine just seems to keep on growing overnight...;000

Lovely project--I like all the lighter colors surrounding the darks...nice work hugs, Julierose

Thanks for commenting, Terri and Julierose.
My bag fills so quickly but it's very small. When I can't close it, it reminds me to stop and make some baby quilts. I always admire people who sort their scraps and cut them to special sizes for storage but I can't ever do that. I'd spend all my time organizing the scraps. Besides, I don't have much space and must prioritize. These aren't always great but they are extremely useful since I know so many young people with small children.

Oh, just fabulous colors and combinations! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for sharing your 'process'. I love the finished quilt, the way you have contrasted the lighter and darker piano keys borders is perfect. Such a lot to look at, great for a Baby quilt.

Oh I do love this Ann! A true scrap quilt, different width borders - lovely - and the colours in your stripped fabrics pick up the colours in the centre floral square.

Fantastic use of those scraps. I really like how you sorted the light from the dark. Great job!

I love scrap quilts . . . so many colors and patterns. They just make me happy and when you're all wrapped up in one there is so much to look at. I get lost in the charm and enchantment of them. It's better than counting sheep :)
Have a marvelous day!
Connie :)
