    Wheeeeeee all done lol....here it is all finished. It measures 55x58.5. I figure it is equal to about 2 yards of fabric more or less in S&C.

    I am going to square it up now. I will use a narrow black 1 inch border, just to keep it square and then after quilting, will bind with black also. I really like it a lot.

    One of my darling friends, knowing of my fetish, dumped some of her scraps and crumbs here. I keep the scraps from different friends seperated, as their stuff is unique to them. I can look at one of my scrap quilts and know exactly who is in them...yes, sometimes I do add and compine but mostly it is from the one person about 75%.

    Because of certain circumstances, I have the need to do mindless right now, so all other started projects, that require some thought are on hold. It is nothing too serious, just some things that happen and are normal.

    So here I am with my S & C (scraps and Crumps). I sewed into the wee hours of the morning as I could not sleep and was feeling quite energetic and excited at the prospect of creating something from nothing.

    This is what I started with and I will call this heap Elaine.

    I sorted the heap into HST (tiny), squares, long pieces etc. At that moment, I didn't have a clue what I was going to do.

    Then I had it neatly piled by the sewing machine. Remember, I am not even thinking, I am just sewing here and there and I am feeling very joyful just doing that.

    I knew my brain would kick in eventually as it knows what I like. It is a funny thing, you know?

    I started to sew all the HST together, all sizes. Then I sewed a long sting of strips and they were going every which way but the mind was saying, " keep goiing". The strip was long and curving and etc.
    Ohh, I just realise you posted a finished picture of it, I was just going to write that I would love to see it finished.... :oops: It looks very nice!!! As someone quoted to me the other day: "when life throws scraps at you - make a quilt!!!"

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rosy it is georgious. If that was mine I would display it for everyone to see.
    I wish I had time to play with my scraps. Maybe by the time next summer comes around I will have time. I have a tub full of old fabric scraps that need to be ironed and played with. Someday. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.

    You are so welcome. I think we inspire each other with our different styles and creation.

    I just finished with the borders and it's squared within the borders. I had to cut a little off and there is some fullness, just a little where there is a lot of bias.

    When I quilt it, it will be eased in and it will be just fine. I might quilt it tomorow or not lol...son is coming in and I have to cook and a quilter friend is coming in also from Washington with her sister and they might stay the night, oh it will be fun.

    You're so welcome

    This is the another pic. Hubby came in and said the upsidedown houses have to be righted hahahha....I saw it but didn't want to fool with it. It was easy to do so I did it. It's the house above the doggie lol.

    Now that I righted them, they look like they are on a pier.
