Once they are cut and resewn, their pattern emerges and I just love the clarity of the design.

  4. Stack & Whack Wonky blocks - How to quilt?

Thanks [the colors are not as bright as shown]

  5. Vintage Christmas Cabin

I used almost EVERY inch of those 11 pieces plus the neutrals I bought when I started the quilt. The finished top is 104 x 104. Ready to go to my quilter. Can't

  7. Tired of repeating the same block

    A scrappy Jacobs Ladder is another awesome scrap quilt. It might be made from HSTs but when every one of them is different, I never get tired of choosing fabric for the simple block.

    Barn Raising is another HST block but with many fabrics it never gets tired.

    When I make these scrappy quilts I work one block

I'm not sure but I can tell you there's over 50, might be closer to 100. Some dating back at least 40 years, some brand new...and don't tell anybody but there's a few sheets and shirts in there too, it'll

    I used fabrics for the border I have had for a very long time.It is some of my favorite and I forgot all about it in a cupboard. I love fabric with stars and most every quilt I have done has star
