scrapper's delight {a finished quilt}

I managed to finish my son's Scrapper's delight quilt over the weekend. 


We both love how it turned out and it's a perfect size for him, 60" x 60". 
I started off by using a Scrapper's Delight pattern from Sunday Morning Quilts, but I ended up changing the pattern a little - you can read about it here.


I backed it with blue minky (per my son's request) and quilted it in concentric squares (thank you, Jamie for the suggestion). I worried a little about this minky being so "bumpy" but at the end it gave me absolutely no trouble at all. Yay!!!


I love how fun yet unobtrusive this quilting turned out- it makes for an interesting backing while blending in with the quilt top very nicely. 


I finished the quilt off by using Kona Ash for the binding. I think it frames this busy quit so well and calms it down a little, too. 

This was such an interesting quilt to work on and I absolutely love that middle square "popping out" of the quilt. Plus, this pattern lends itself so well to boyish colors (always a hard thing for me to do).

Thanks so much for reading. Svetlana

  1. I've used the bumpy minky for backing too and likewise had zero trouble with it. It makes for a very cozy quilt!

    I love this finish, and the concentric squares is a great idea. One I've never tried before - must keep it in mind! Your son looks like he's already enjoying his new quilt. :)

  12. It's beautiful Svetlana. I have been tempted to use minky as a backing so many times, but have not yet tried it as I thought it would be too troublesome - I'm glad that you said it was fine (that's like a green light for me to go ahead and try it!). I LOVE the quilting pattern on this - very clever!

  20. Striking design and fabric combinations, Svetlana. I think it makes a wonderful, masculine quilt. I've always wondered how easy Minkee is to quilt... good to hear and see your fantastic results. May have to give it a try!

  25. I love the way this looks! The blue minky is the perfect shade of blue for the back and looks oh so cuddly! I am trying to figure out how you pieced it. It's not 4 big blocks cut into quarters is it?
