Scrap Quilt Patterns

Scrap quilt patterns are among some of the most popular here at FonsAndPorter.com! Stemming from the early days of quilting, scrap quilting originated from scarce resources and limited funds. Resourceful quilters wanted to make sure they got the most they could from ever piece of fabric they purchased with their hard earned money (especially since early quilters were often using old linens, worn clothing or other materials that they thought could still be useful to their family in some other way – like a scrappy quilt top!). Scrap quilting also appeals to a wide range of quilters – from modern quilters who use their scraps to make an improvisational wall quilt to traditional quilters looking to make popular quilt patterns like a Dresden plate or coin quilt. It can also be a way to commemorate your own quilting history. After all, each of those scraps have come from a different quilting project you’ve worked on! They may have even come from friends or family – making your next scrap quilt that much more special.
