The Luna Quilt in Scrappy Rifle Paper Co.

When I was putting together my post with all of the quilts that I made last year, I realized that I had a few quilts that had never been photographed. Oops! Photographing quilts is important and I wanted to make sure that they got documented before too much time has passed, so Grumpy Tom and I set out on New Years Eve to photograph most of the quilts (one of them is with the fabric manufacturer) so we are going to start 2023 off with a few catchup posts.

Let's start with the scrappy Luna Quilt that I made as part of the Quiltalong. During the QAL, I made a scrappy and a non-scrappy quilt — this is the scrappy one.


When making a scrappy quilt, sometimes I like to pick a theme. I might go with rainbow scraps, solid scraps, scraps from a single manufacturer, or (in this case) scraps from a single design group. All of these fabrics, including the low volume background pieces, the binding, and the backing, are by Rifle Paper Co.

I am a pretty big fan of Rifle Paper Co.'s prints and have used them in lots of quilts:

Because of all of these previous projects, I had a pretty good selection of scraps and I had some yardage for both the binding and backing fabric. It worked out very nicely.

With scrap quilts, I always try for lots of variety. Ideally, a scrap quilt would be made up of unique prints (nothing used twice) but I also want to prioritize using the scraps that I have instead of cutting into my stash. The darker valued prints in the quilt have pretty good variety and the low volume prints had a little less variety but I am ok with that.

The backing fabric is one of my favorite prints from any of the Rifle Paper Co. collections. It is from the Les Fleurs collection and is called Rosa

For the binding fabric, I tried to find something in my stash that would coordinate with the fabrics on the front of the quilt as well as the backing fabric, but most of the Rifle Paper Co. prints in m y stash are fat quarters so I only had one option! It is a bit of a circus with the backing fabric, but it's a scrap quilt so I'm ok with it.

While making quilts, I tend to enjoy different parts of the process based on the fabrics that I am using and the pattern that I am making. For this quilt, my favorite part was definitely looking through scraps and cutting them for the quilt. I am sure this won't be my last Rifle Paper Co. Quilt!
