Sometimes you look at a quilt and immediately know it’s from a scrap quilt pattern. Other times, a quilt’s scrappiness is not as apparent. The maker has grouped the scrappy assortment of fabrics by color or value and given the scrap quilt a more cohesive look. Such is the case in one of my favorite McCall’s Quilting scrap quilt patterns, Rustic Hearts by our associate editor Sherri Bain Driver.
Fans of country style will agree with me…this is an absolutely adorable quilt! Sherri’s use of scrappy assortments of red, cream/tan, black, and gold fabric groups takes what could have been a just-nice design to an entirely new level of interest and depth.
This free quilt pattern also lends itself well to different colorations. Imagine substituting assorted navy fabrics for the blacks and red/white/blue prints for the golds…instant quilt pattern for a gift for a veteran or member of the Armed Services! Or how about a pink, white, and red color scheme for a little girl’s quilt? The possibilities are endless.
