Design Wall Monday - Finished Quilt Top

The Scrap Vortex is finally a quilt top!

I started this quilt in June 2015 and it has used up a ton of scraps. The piano key borders took a long time to prepare and attach, but I'm soooo happy with how it all turned out. It is rich with scrappy fabric memories and completely frenetic - just like my life! 
The quilt top measures 59" x 77".
I have a week left in April to get this quilt pin basted, quilted and bound. I feel like I'm on the amazing quilt race TV show...will she reach the finish line in time?!?!

  1. Wow! Look great! I just started my third scrap vortex quilt. This one is being made with brightly coloured flannel scraps and will likely end up being a baby quilt in waiting. (Waiting for a baby to come along so I can gift it!)

  23. I'm glad you included the words in case there was any doubt that this is a scrap vortex. ;) This is so cool. And I really like how the scrappy border contains the inner vortex!

  24. What great density your scrap vortex has. The piano keys border is perfect and looks a bit like Chinese coins we've been discussing. What a fun way to transform this simple but versatile design. Thanks for linking with AHIQ.
