I’ve finished my first scrap quilt! I made this Fugly Scrap quilt for the The Scrap Attack Quilt-Along at Stitched in Colour. It finishes at 42 inches square and apart from a couple of Jelly Roll strips this was made entirely from scraps and this was all that I had left over…
For the binding I used all of a 10 inch long x width of fabric piece of red polka dot fabric, which wasn’t really a scrap but I think I bought it as a remnant. This wasn’t enough to mitre the corners but I think it turned out ok. But the backing is a new piece of sheeting and the wadding is new. I suppose, technically, that only makes it a half scrap quilt. I’m not in love with this quilt but it certainly turned out better than I expected and I think I may have been bitten by the scrapping bug! Now I just need some more scraps – or maybe a new definition that would let me use bigger pieces of fabric. How do you define a scrap?

Nice quilt great finish.
Make sure you stop by and put your guess in my quilt givaway by guessing my babys B-day or Birth Weight.

Lovely quilt and a great way to use scraps! I'm not sure about my definition of a scrap so I'll be back to see what everyone else says!!
Very cute quilt, Janine. Yay for using up all those scraps! That's a beautiful binding too! I define a scrap as anything that can't be used significantly in another quilt – so anything less than 1/4 yardage or smaller. I'm curious what other people say too!

Love your scrappy quilt it is really beautiful
That is fabulous! I think a remnant can be considered scrappy!
Looks lovely janine!
Lovely quilt! Good job on using up all those scraps! My definition of a scrap is: any piece of fabric left over from a finished project, no matter what the size!

I reckon a scrap is anything less than a FQ that isnt currently destined for a project!
I don't think it's fugly! I think it turned out really cute. I love scrappy things, and I esp. love that binding. I usually consider anything that's already been used in something as a scrap. Or something I bought for something but it didn't work.. that might go straight to scrap status. I'm a liberal scrapper. ;) xo

I like how this turned out.
My definition of a scrap changes day to day. Sometimes I throw a fat quarter sized piece in my scrap drawer, and other days I put that same size back with my yardages.
