Make A Scrappy Cirrus Quilt With Pre-Cut Fabric

Let me tell you about the new pre-cut friendly quilt pattern – the scrappy Cirrus Quilt! I made this modern quilt using a Half Yard bundle, but you can use most size pre-cuts or bundles for this quilt pattern!

First off, the design of the Cirrus quilt pattern are half square triangle quilt blocks that are pieced each using 4 different fabrics. They come together to form the shapes of large flying geese designs. The new modern quilt pattern includes 4 sizes: Baby, Lap, Throw, and Bed sizes. You can get the quilt pattern in my shop as a PDF Download or printed paper booklet version.

So you want to make a Connector quilt out of fat quarters? I say that’s a GREAT idea! It will definitely look a bit more scrappy but can be really amazing! Scrappy quilts are great!

A Scrappy Twist on the Boho Mod Quilt Pattern

Last week I whipped together a slightly-altered version of the Boho Mod Quilt pattern by @MeeshQuilts. My alterations included making it scrappy and changing up the borders so I could use the fabrics that I had, even when I didn’t have the right amounts. To see other color variations of this awesome quilt pattern, check out #bohomodquilt on Instagram.

Piecing this top was super quick; it came together in just a few hours! I loved getting to use my scraps because I really felt like it is a very no-waste way to quilt. Using up fabric scraps is great, especially when they look this amazing together like all these beautiful solids from @pbsfabrics! The colors in this quilt include WhiteAmber, Bubble Gum, CoralMaize, Pale AquaPoseidon, River, and Verbena.

If you are just learning how to quilt, you likely do not have many scraps yet, but once you get a few quilts accomplished, you’ll soon have a major stash of fabric scraps that would be perfect to use on this pattern! Sidenote: this pattern is also Jelly Roll friendly!
