If you're looking for a way to use all those fabric scraps you've accumulated from other quilt projects, you've come to the right place.

Here you'll find a collection of over thirty free, beautiful scrappy quilt patterns, tutorials, and diy sewing projects gathered from all over the web.

So whether you have larger fabric scraps the size of layer cakes, or a pile of teeny, tiny scraps you can't seem to part with, hopefully you'll be able to find just the project you're looking for.

So, of course, the main reason for making a scrap quilt is that it allows you to use fabric that would otherwise go to waste. But making a scrappy quilt can also be a great way to use a specific print you love but don't have enough of to make it the center of a design.


And when you think "scrappy quilt," you might automatically think of a quilt made with random scraps of fabric in a multitude of colors and patterns. And a design like this can look lovely. But a scrap quilt can also look planned and cohesive. One way to achieve this is to include new fabric in your design, perhaps a solid color as your background, then insert your scraps into your quilt sparingly for a somewhat modern look. A design like this can also help the scraps stand out more and showcase a special print. Another way to to make your scrappy quilt look planned is to choose a single color palette for your design. Your ability to do this, of course, will depend on having enough scraps in the right colors.

And if you don't have larger scraps for the quilt you want to make, try sewing smaller pieces of fabric together, then cutting these larger blocks down to the size you need.

And because you'll be working with smaller fabric pieces for your scrap quilt, an accurate quarter inch seam is essential. Therefore, a scrap quilt might not be the best project for a beginner to take on.
