    Tutorial Summer in the Park

    Awhile ago I think it was Natalie did a tutorial on Summer in the Park and at the end she stated something about using the left over cuttings and using them in the boarder. My question is if have all this left over swatches and I want to know how to add them to the boarders they are all different sizes and shapes depending on the length of the strip. Can anyone help or tell me where the other tutorial is.

    I have looked for the video and can't find it. What about a scrappy border with the leftovers. Would that work? Sorry I have no clue.

      I think this is the tutorial you are talking about. She talks about scraps for the borders around the 3:30 mark.

        I take all sorts of scraps from strips and just stitch them into on random piece,, then cut border strips from that! You can stitch them into shorter pieces and attach, that may be easier to handle...

          I don't know about a tutorial for that, but I found a use for all those scraps left over from making a Summer in the Park quilt. You can sew them together to make blocks. Some of the lines & fabrics won't match up, but it still will look okay & a baby isn't going to care if his/her quilt was made from scraps. LOL Here are pics of what I did with those scraps last year.

            I like your thrifty solution a lot. I have a jelly roll and yardage to make this pattern but haven't yet started it. Now instead of groaning over the waste, it's a feature!

                I combined the scrappy parts with other fabrics to dress it up.

                        Here is my solution to the summer in the park quilt scraps
                        image.jpgimage.jpg
                        They do not line up well, but when you add a 1-1.25 inch strip (.5- .75 inch sashing) between them it gives the optical illusion that they line up.
                        Happy Quilting!

                            Another clever and thrifty solution! Thanks so much for sharing it. And I love how cheerful your quilt turned out. Lovely!
