Kay left it with me to be quilted "however I wanted" and I certainly did not know how to quilt it until it was loaded on my frame. Then I just followed the piecing. 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 larger quilt was wanted so Carolyn made more blocks and put this wonderful traditional quilt together. I simply love it!!! Each block was pieced with different fabrics but in the same color. 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

  5. Question about Warm & Natural... I need some great advice!!!

    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

Size:  576.0 KB made this quilt right before Christmas using only fabrics in my stash for the entire project! (Now I have room to buy more!)

    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

  10. EZ Half Square Triangles!

    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!
