Scrap Quilt Challenge-Button Block Tutorial-Scrap Therapy

Here we are, the last Scrap Quilt Challenge block tutorial!  It’s been a great summer of scrap quilting!  If you missed our other block tutorials, just click on the designer’s name to pop over to their blog & check them out: Anne Weins, Nancy Mahoney, Mishka’s Playground.

Joan Ford from Hummingbird Highway & Scrap Therapy has designed this month’s button block.  This 6 inch block just makes me happy.  The circle quilting makes the button look like it’s smiling!  I want a whole quilt with these scrappy cuties!  When you pop over to check out the tutorial, be sure you sign up for Joan’s newsletter.  Lots of great info & news every week. 

Of course, as we look at this happy last tutorial, we hear that deadline bell ringing a bit louder.

The Scrap Quilt Challenge deadline is just

2 weeks away

It’s time to get the quilting wrapped up & get your scrappy beauty bound.  Then, of course, it’s photo op time.

The Scrap Quilt Challenge is easy…really!  Don’t read more into the rules than is there.  This is your quilt, your scraps, your creativity.  We are not judging entries, or awarding prizes based on design. 

Upload your pic in time, abide by our easy 3 rules, and you are qualified.  Yes, we are working on the honor system with our rules.  Though those who don’t play by the rules taint the fun, we are just going to let Karma catch up with them.  Life’s too short for me or you to spend our energy on policing entries.

  • 45” x 60” minimum size

  • Entries must be completed quilts (patchwork, applique, rag quilt are all fine.  It just must be a completed project)

  • Entries should have been completed in the last year (since last year’s challenge ended on October 15, 2013)

Upload your qualifying quilt to our flickr group by end of the day on October 15, 2014:

Won’t have your quilt finished?  That’s ok.  There is always next year!  The rules won’t change.  Since you obviously love scrap quilts, go take a look at the over 70 pictures already uploaded & leave some comments.  Everyone loves to get a pat on the back; spread some love.

Once you make your button block, upload a pic to our Facebook group & share it !  We’d love to see it!
