Moda Scrap Bag Quilt

I finished piecing this quilt top! Again it is a simple design but since I love these fabrics I am very happy with the result. This was a scrap bag project and I don't know if all the scrap bag contains the exact same thing, I am not going to do a complete tutorial on this. Still some of you might want to make something like this, I will give a few mesurements and tips. Note: The light green and ivory fabrics for the sashing and the border were not in the scrap bag. I added them from my own stash.

1. First I made 24 nine-patch pieces. Most of the strips from the bag were 3 3/4" wide X 33 1/2" long. A finished nine-patch was 10 1/4" x 10 1/4".

2. You will need 12 pieces of 4" x 4" squares (light green fabric), and 38 pieces of 4" X 10 1/4" strips (ivory color) for the sashings.

3. Assemble 1 and 2 together and attach borders. For the borders, I didn't have enough light green fabric, so what I decided to do was to use leftover peices from the nine patch and made scrappy borders. I actually like it this way.

It is fun to make a quilt without a complete plan sometimes. I just went with the flow and decided on the design as I made the quilt. If I see another scrap bag that has cute colors (well, of course they will all be cute, they are from Moda!) I will buy it in a heartbeat.


  1. What a gorgeous quilt...all from one Scrap Bag...I'm definitely going to have to look for one of those!

  2. I knew you would do something beautiful with that scrap bag! I love it!

  3. Sherri,

    I'm sorry, I didn't specify that the fabrics used in the sashing and border were from my own collection. I've updated the blog.

  4. Did I ever tell you how awesome you are? Did I ever tell you that we have a Moda wharehouse here, but you have to have a business lisence to get in? I'm getting mine for preschool and I'll let you know how the place is. You can buy fabric and dishes and tableclothes and bags and all sorts of stuff that they make.

    Oh! Are you serious!? You are bragging aren't you? :) I wish I could fly out there and visit the Moda werehouse and American Girls doll store. You got to post your trip to the store on your blog!

  6. Only you could take scrap fabrics and make something so wonderful!

  7. Your quilt top is wonderful! I love what you turn scraps into. :)
