The second scrap box quilt is complete!
Back when I made my initial scrap box quilt, I knew that I would make another one. It is such an efficient use of white and cream scraps plus all of the tiny scraps most people would just throw away.
Here are some stats on this quilt:
321 scrappy boxes
15 Bobbins full of thread
89 x 97 inches
7 yards of backing
12 yards of binding
The color groups I focused on were navy, aqua, turquoise, grass green, lime green, yellow, and gray. The neutrals include some tone-on-tone whites, Kona Snow, Kona white, and Kona Bone.
I chose to do the maze-style quilting again. This took me a very long time. I always end up quilting smaller than I start off, so a lot of these lines are very close together. The quilting alone probably took me about 16 hours.
To entertain myself while I quilted this monster, I quilted a few words into it. Here (above) is the last name of the family who will be receiving this quilt.
In the picture above, you might be able to see the year “2013” quilted into the quilt.
I also believe I quilted the word “Jello” in this quilt, but I wasn’t able to find it while taking pictures.
I also added some fun fabrics to the quilt. I made my son a quilt with some star wars fabric, and so I had to put a little piece in this quilt.
Will there be a scrap box III? Not for a long time. I first need to collect enough neutrals, and that will take quite a while. But, who knows.
Thanks for stopping by!
