The scrappy blocks are all made from strips in different widths and Kati wanted those highlighted with straight lines.
I quilted swirls in the vertical sashing and ribbon candy in the horizontal sashing.
At the intersections I alternated which design was on "top," creating a woven effect. At the time I didn't know that was the name Kati had chosen, so it ended up perfect!
I divided the border into two sections and repeated the swirls and ribbon candy from the sashing on a slightly larger scale.
Like most of Kati's quilts the back was pieced and added a whole new level of interest.
I really, really love this quilt. The color scheme and fabrics, the design and layout, and the visual interest from the scrappiness all add up to an amazing quilt. I'm so excited that I got to be part of it. If you would like your own copy of Scraps, Inc. you can get one here. If you use the code SCRAPS30 you can get a discount, at least for the next few days. All of the quilts in the book that I have seen are wonderful. If you love scrappy quilts you will not be disappointed.
