I used black Hobbs 80/20 batting, red thread to outline the poppies, black thread on the black fabric, green thread on the green fabric. On the face of the quilt the poppies

A wonderful way to use scraps to make a beautiful quilt! I love her corner stones and sashings. This one is certainly one I want to make for myself

But there are an AFTER!... After I’d known about this awesome board.
With you I larned a lot, and the result is this simple quilt “The casual fit” quilt for my DH. Without this forum I couldn't have done it. Thank you by heart.
It is 59” x 68” size and my husband

So, does W&N usually give that crinkly/used look after washings??
What batting do you use in wallhangings?
Thank you for your ideas.

I wrote her for details.
She graciously shared her know-how with me and I made up an all floral quilt--made of scraps.
I already had 3.5" strips cut up so all I had to

Since I love making Scrappy projects, I fell in love with it at first sight, but knew it had to be made as a quilt. I added an extra row to the bottom of the tree to make it taller, and also added two rows of background pieces about the tree since I didn't want it to be a square quilt. I also added an additional two borders

It is quick, no marking, little waste and you can make whatever unfinished size of HST you want-need.
Please ask questions if my directions are not clear.
have fun! Now on to my project!
