Lucky number thirteen is called Crow's Foot. I wanted to challenge myself to make a scrap quilt. I have never made a true scrap quilt. I know there is a certain number of fabrics you have to use to make a scrap quilt but I'm not sure what that number is. Perhaps one of my readers will know. I found one blog that said it is 75 different fabrics. So I made sure I used 100 different fabrics.
I know many quilters are very organized with their scraps. This however is not a word in my vocabulary. (organized) So... not only did I use 100 fabrics, but there were over 400 cut pieces in this scrap quilt. More organized quilters could have strips already for cutting.
I'm always afraid to mix fabrics that I don't think necessarily go
together. But on this scrap quilt I did.
Surprise! I liked the way it turned out. I think this is a great exercise for every quilter because you will feel more at ease the next time you question yourself about a fabric.
