Scrappy Blue is finished

At last I have a finish! I have many projects in various stages (post coming soon) but just this one finish. Scrappy Blue is a 58" square donation quilt.

I fussy cut the middle of every other blue square. The alternate blue squares are surrounded by a 3/4" wide piece of various scraps stitched together. The two youngest grandsons that live somewhat near us sewed most of those borders when they visited one day in July.

I used more scraps for the piano key border. It will make a good I-spy quilt for some young person.

I quilted this with Double Loop which is different from Double Bubble. I used 40-weight Isacord #3444 thread.

The back is a red fabric from my stash.

I still don't have the tension on my Juki perfect so I can't use a different color bobbin thread. One of these days, I'll work on tension...


  1. What a great quilt. Love that you had help making parts for it this summer.

  2. This is so fun....the optical illusion of movement is great! Fun that the boys could help participate by sewing on the borders. Tension.....mine never stays the same.....but I like the motif variation.

  3. Awesome gender neutral donation quilt, Jeanne!! Love, love, LOVE that your grandsons helped in the making of this quilt. Well done, (insert your grandmother name here!)
