Happy Fall, Y'all! Well, almost :D

For my challenge this month, I was inspired by this cool quilt I saw on Pinterest. Now, I have never made a quilt, but I saw this sample and thought it would make a fun layout background! Plus, it looked like a great scrap stash-buster :D

Image

Fun, right? The best part is this little snapshot of the quilt was the perfect sample size to recreate the pattern using a 12x12 background. I used 9 different patterned papers. I cut (2) 2x2" squares from each pattern and then chopped each square in half diagonally to make all the triangles. Then I just laid them out on a 12x12 piece of cardstock in the pattern from the quilt. You can also cut a few "place holders" of the same size using another scrap to help you get them glued on straight.

I actually grabbed a basket full of scraps from the layouts I've made with my BPM kits this summer. So all of these patterns were from Medley kits from June-August (one pattern might have been from a Solo). It helped me narrow down my choices from all the scraps in my stash and was much less overwhelming to do the mixing and matching.

Here's some photos of my background in progress...

Starting my pattern. See my kraft colored "place holders?"

Here's my completed background piece:

And here's my completed layout:

So my challenge for you this month is to use a quilt as the inspiration to create your own sheet of patterned paper, using scraps from your stash. And then use that sheet on a layout. Dig around your scrap bin, play with different colors and patterns and then go for it! The fun thing about this challenge is you can mix and match a ton of patterns and it will still turn out cool since it's the pattern you make with them that's the real "wow" factor.

You have from now until midnight Eastern time on Sept. 30 to complete the challenge. You may complete as many projects using the challenge as you wish. Each project will earn you an entry into our monthly prize drawing. Please upload your layout to our gallery in the appropriate "Sept. '13 Challenges" folder to be eligible for the prize.

Super cool Alissa! Love it!!! And what a fun challenge. I have something in mind I've been meaning to try for awhile but then I love this technique too. Going to have to see what I can come up with.

Brilliant! Thanks for the tutorial - I like the kraft background peeking through. There's lots to look at, but it's not too busy. Well done!

Beautiful LO!
What a great idea. I have seen some great quilts on Pinterest too. I have quilted in the past, but it has been a while. It would be good to "quilt" on a scrap page.
