Then Came June hosted a fun and FREE quilt along for her Peanut Butter quilt which is scrap friendly! If you had followed along my January clean up of my sewing area, you saw I cut down a ton of scraps to usable sizes - which was perfect for my Scrappy Rainbow Peanut Butter Quilt! I never would have thought I had enough scraps to make a full throw size quilt (and I still had a lot leftover!). Read on to lean more about my Scrappy Rainbow Peanut Butter Quilt.

All of the scraps!

I have been in a season of just fun and happy sewing over here. I must say joining quilt alongs is by far the sure fire way to make sure that I stay on track and actually get into my sewing room. If I just leave it up to sewing at my own pace, life catches up with me and I never actually get to my sewing machine. Being able to use all my scraps and for the most part a lot of them were cut to the right size for this project - making it so much easier! It was so fun pulling the fabrics together in a rainbow layout, it was a walk down memory lane for what I used each fabric for.

Continuing with my scrappy style, I grabbed a couple different binding scraps to pull together a simple and light grey binding. Do you keep your binding cutoffs? I never know if I should keep scraps of binding that are less than a certain length, but I think if it's 12" or longer that I tend to toss them into my binding basket. I tended to discard or not include scraps smaller than that length in this scrappy binding.

I dug straight into my stash for some of this fun sushi flannel...I know the colors aren't really jiving with the top itself. Did you spot the sushi fabrics in the quilt top? I just felt like with the scrappy top, this was a fun way to incorporate this flannel that I grabbed from Joann's a while back during a flannel sale. I've never had issues with using flannel backing with a cotton top. I'm sure it'll wash up to be a family favorite quilt in the house.

With there being so much going on in the quilt top, I knew I needed to keep the quilting simple. I had just designed this Domestic Waves pantograph for a client and decided it would be a fun addition to the scrappy peanut butter quilt. Love the quilting design? It's one of mine available in the shop, pass this link along to your quilter or you find more info below about having me quilt up your quilt top.
