Scrap Jar Quilt

I know I've shared this quilt before. It's the first quilt I've ever made. This one I made for my youngest daughter. I even machine quilted it myself.

Here is the back:

I originally made the scrappy strips to add to the front for a border, but my daughter didn't like that idea. So I added them to the back of the quilt.

I'm entering this into the Blogger's Quilt Festival Scrappy Quilts.


  1. Crystal, I think your quilt is lovely. Someday I hope to make a scrappy star quilt too.

  2. What a happy bright quilt! I just love the stars and the 9patches sprinkled across it! And the back is as cute as the glad you used those strips!!

  3. Your first quilt and all those little squares....oh my you are brave. LOVE the colors with white background.

    1. Thank you! When I was a teenager I used to go to my aunts and sew squares together for quilts, but we never ever finished them (unless she finished them by herself) and I don't know what happened to them.

  4. I like the corner squares that make a secondary block. Quite a lovely setting. Hard to believe it's your first!

  5. Love your 16 patches in the centre of each star and the secondary pattern from the corner squares, absolutely fab :D #tuesdayarchives
