Electric Quilt, Scrappy Sunday, scraps

December Scrappy Doodles

Our December block is the deceptively simple Hourglass. Over on the Doodles page you can see some ideas in greyscale but over here we’re all about scraps – which can change the look of the quilts quite dramatically.

First – here’s the block as conventionally coloured and then using scraps with a different colour placement

What happens when we use scraps to make a quilt? First – rainbow colours on a white ground using the same colour placement as the first block above

These next three quilts use the colour placement of the second block

But, as it is now December, what does the quilt look like in the traditional red, green and white and using our Christmas scraps? This might give you an idea
