Chippewa Scrap Quilt

Chippewa Scrap Quilt, Cluck Cluck Sew_thumb
I made a dent in my scrap bin!  Yeah right.  But I did put some of my scraps to use and made this quilt…aptly named after our street.  You know you’re out of clever quilt names when you start naming them after streets.

This one is about 44” square.  A perk of having my 7 year old home all summer is he can hold up quilts for pictures…and he’s easily bribed with gum.

I drew this one out in my old school graph paper notebook.  It’s still the best way to play with  ideas and figure out patterns. :)  If there’s interest I’ll post my measurements when I finish the quilt…I think it makes such a unique/modern baby quilt!
Plus using up scraps is always a great…so I can buy more fabric…and make more scraps.  ;)

    Oh yes – please share your measurements. This quilt is just stunning. The idea that we can actually use our scraps is a bonus! Thanks.

    Love this one. And the name. Looks kinda like a dream catcher.

    Hehe! You had me at the bribing your 7 year-old (I do the same with my 6 year old), and using your graph paper (I love doing that too…). Cute quilt!

    A stunning quilt. Will watch for more details. You get off lucky with a gum bribe.

    I love graph paper for quilt planning! (

    This turned out lovely. Beautiful colors and piecing and layout… I guess I just like everything about it. :)

    Very pretty and yay for using the scraps!

  15. Kelly O. June 17, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

    I really like this one! I'm working on three of your quilts right now for my boys… Busy Kid, Touchdown and the Squares and Stripes patterns… just realized the other day that everything I was working on was yours and realized I just finished an easy bake quilt about a month ago….All this to say that I just love your work! and how it is truly uniquely you and it inspires me! thank you!

    So glad someone out there still draws things out on graph paper!! I finished your Off Track quilt and I LOVE how it turned out! Here's the link:

    SUCH an awesome pattern! Think I'll be making another. ;-) And I think I might just make this Chippewa quilt of yours using the scraps from Off Track!

    I still use graph paper, too! I find it relaxing to draw things out by hand in the little squares. Beautiful quilt!
