Island Batik March Challenge - Scrapbuster from Sew Preeti Quilts

The March 2021 Island Batik Challenge is to make a Scrapbuster Quilt.  

Being a new ambassador I do not have a lot of Island Batik fabrics.

Me: How do I make a scrapbuster without scraps?
Paul: You have no scraps?
Me: How do I make an Island Batik scrapbuster quilt without Island Batik scraps?
Paul: Did you not get a big box of fabric?
Me: Well, yes, I did. However, some of that fabric has been used in previous projects and some is earmarked for later projects. Whatever is left is a bit limiting.
Paul: So what did you do ...

Amani from Sew Preeti Quilts

Lately several of my sentences begin with "After we get vaccinated..."

Of course this time in our lives has been unlike any other with few guidelines and little direction.  We have had to improvise as we went along. 


A New Finish


But life does not stop for a vaccine. It happens while we wait for other things.

Such is this quilt.

"After I complete the RSC2020 quilts, I will start the Carnavale quilt", I thought. But then life happened. Literally. Nancy's baby boy is due any minute. Therefore the RSC projects were set aside and a rapid baby boy ...

Scraps Explosion



Half Made Blocks


The Rainbow Scrap Challenge feels like a party and it IS a lot of fun...till you get to this time of the year.

Now the party is coming to a close and there are blocks everywhere. How many blocks? Did I lose/misplace some? I was going to redo that one but then forgot. Where do I even start?


Framed Jewel Blocks (Light Borders)

Rough & Tumble from Sew Preeti Quilts

In summer I was working on a scrap vortex quilt.  

Scrappy Goodness

Green chair fabric came from Mell

Wonkiness Galore

Finished Flimsy

Pieced Backing

Turquoise Binding

Here is the finished quilt. I named it - "Rough & Tumble"
Bright & Happy

Does it have a story?
Hmmm... it has poem :-)


I dived into my pile of scraps - old and new
long strips, odd shapes and pieces askew
There were some cute scraps from Mell
I chased after them as they tried to escape and fell 
Some fabrics scream and others just mumble
But they all fit happily in this Rough & Tumble

Art Imitates ...
