Strip Easy Quilt Challenge - H2H 2014 #2

May 28 is the link up for the Strip Easy Quilt Challenge - see the button on my sidebar- brought to you by Denise over at  www.piecedbrain.com   The Challenge was to make up to 3 projects using strips from your accumulated scraps.

Since I needed  to make a quilt this month for H2H 2014 I used this opportunity to come up with a quilt that could use my previously existing strips.  The bulk of these were actually from a friends collection which she left on my doorstep when she moved. The windspinners are all from left over strips.  some needed to be trimmed to 2 1/2 inches but they are all from the scrap pile.  The background is from the misc left over stash of creams but not strips.


Next up on my to do list is a baby quilt for my newest nephew. In February Moda had an alphabet hop and if you followed it you got the patterns for the letters.  In January I participated in a hop that required you to use Kona Solids.  At the time I purchased 2 Jelly Rolls.  I still had quite a bit of that stash left and decided to do the Moda letters using the Kona  Strips. They are addicting. Each letter takes less than a strip of  the left over Jelly Roll.  I started it yesterday.


The next quilt is not new for this challenge but I am including it because it is made from scrap strips. Each block is made from a different strip from my stash.  The top was made a while back and put aside.  Last month I pulled it out and quilted it for my first quilt for H2H 2014.


I hope you have been inspired to dig into the scraps. You just never know what you can come up with if you don't give it a try. Thanks Denise for the challenge.
