WIP Wednesday-BBT 3 quilt top

I finished my bright birch tree quilt top! This is the third version of this pattern that I've made to date. I decided to abbreviate the name to BBT 3, just for fun. :) (The pattern is available here.)
So many tiny scraps were used up in this quilt top!
At one point I was running low on tiny scraps because I used most of them up previous blocks, but thankfully that problem was short lived. All I had to do is wait a week or two, and there were plenty more from other projects!
These blocks finish at about 12 1/4" square. Even though I love these birch tree quilts, I'm determined to branch out (hahahaha!) next time around and use my tiny scraps in another format. I've got a few ideas.....and plenty more scraps!

I bought your pattern and made one. I have a bright Kona layer cake waiting to make another one as I sew black and white and gray scraps for the trunks. Very nice quilt!

OK now, so I am working to finish up my UFO's and just HAD to go and buy your pattern. I L O V E this pattern...PDF'd and printed it off--it's in first place in my "Quilts I Want to Make" Binder--and yes
it is a B I G binder ;00000

I hope I just live long enough to make them all; some are patterns from the 80's. So:
Scrap basket look out, here I come...I will make this my "leader-ender"...so enjoy your linkups, too thanks for your lovely postings (I think hahaha)

What a great way to use bits & pieces of fabric. One thing is it will go with any colour scheme!

I adore your BBT quilts! But how in the world are you NOT completely out of scraps all the time ;) even if you do start new projects.

Janet said...

So bright and pretty! I look forward to seeing what your next scrap idea is. And love your quips. :)
