Two U&U quilts

Two U&U quilts finished:

Sunshine Scraps for Sujata

The top quilt was random scraps for a class I was teaching on Improv Log Cabins.  I’ve titled it “Still Crazy (About Quilting) After All These Years. 

The bottom quilt is titled “Sunshine Scraps for Sujata” which started out following the quilt Sujata demonstrated for this challenge.  Of course, I veered off course.  I used solids that must have been the original charm pack way back before stores had die cutters and a standard size.  They were approximately 4” sort of square.  Close enough for this project.  The prints were from a mystery box I purchased one from a local quilt store years ago with random leftover block of the month kits.  There was a great variety of fabrics in all sizes, all neat and tidy.  I eliminated the corner quarter triangle squares.  I used simple straight line machine quilting.  Fun and Done!


  1. I love them both Christine!I am glad you veered off the basic instructions. That's where the fun is.
    I love the sparkle of yellow and gold, it is like the last bit of sunshine on the roof of a forest in Chester county, PA!
    I love the name - DOn't think it is going to change any time this lifetime. XO

  2. 2 great quilts scrappy quilts are always so interesting to see

  3. Great use of scraps! Nice play of color across the quilt.

  4. Glorious, huge bursts of colour - absolutely love them!! Very appropriate titles for both these beauties.

  5. I really like your take on the initial challenge quilt Sujata chose -- very striking indeed. Love your colors!

  6. They are both beautiful! Congratulations.
