Second Look Sunday: Scrappy Susannah Quilt

Happy Sunday everyone!  On the 2nd Sunday of each month I share a new take on an old favorite quilt -- one that you may have missed the first time around!  This time I'm sharing a quilt I recently finished using one of my quilt block tutorials - the Scrappy Susannah.

The tutorial makes a 12.5" quilt block and is so great for scraps - all of the required pieces measure either 3.5" or 4.25"

These make great bee blocks or swap blocks for groups and guilds.  The block isn't complicated to piece, and the finished quilts are so fun & scrappy - the scrappier the better!

This quilt top was started years ago and it's been sitting all forlorn in my WIP bin for far too long.

Many of these fabrics did come from my scrap bin, but I was lacking in navy scraps so I had to cut into some fat quarters as well.  But because of how the block is pieced, it still has a scrappy look to it.

The quilt measures 60" x 72" and uses 30 blocks.  I backed it in some gorgeous navy colored Minky fabric.  I love seeing the texture of the quilting on the back!
