The Plumb Quilt

The Plumb quilt is finished. I'm so happy with how it turned out.

Straight Line Quilting

This quilt was made from the Plumb pattern in the Scrap Republic book and I used mostly scraps, but I did add in a few pieces from my precious Heather Ross Lighning Bugs stash.

For the back I used this gorgeous Denise Schmidt print that I got from Spotlight and have been saving especially for a quilt back.

This quilt is in keeping with my goal of making quilts with what I already have in my stash. Top made from scraps, backing and binding from the stash and I found a perfect size left over piece of batting in Mum's sewing room. The binding was fabric on clearance from Spotlight ages ago and I purchased it for stashing for binding. It pays to stash spots and stripes for binding, you never know when it may be perfect for something one day.

I posted a photo of this quilt on my Facebook page the other day when it was still unfinished and I had a buyer in an hour. It will be going to it's new home later in the week.


  1. It's really beautiful, and I'm sure the person who bought it will really cherish this lovely quilt!

  2. This is so cute and cheerful. Great way to use up scraps.

  3. I love this quilt design and think your choice of border scraps is gerpnerated. Really makes the quilt work. Seeing yours has made me want to finish a half made one I started months ago!

  4. Just re-read my post, complete with its typo! Predictive text is a pain! But your quilt DID encourage me to finish my quilt and I am now hand sewing the Binding.
