    I saw a quilt, at our LQS, that was made out of the fabric origami method, but did not have the book to see how it was done. I went to the library in my small town, and no luck finding the book either.. So, came home, dug out some paper, and began doing my own origami until I ended up with these three " flowers".. just scraps.. I am going to be on the lookout now though for the actual book ... I couldn't even explain one step to the next how I ended up doing this little thing.. it was more pulling hair , than fun.. but the actual quilt in town was amazing to look at .. just wanted to share some "spring warmth" on this cold, and snow flake falling day/evening here in eastern Oregon.

    Also wanted to post this little jelly roll scrappy baby quilt I am trying to finish up to donate to our local pregnancy center. Its done the way that " Eddie" here on the board posted .. easy, brainless ( I need brainless!! ), and quick..

    I will call the store on MOnday to find out the name... one of the ladies in our town made it, and used it as a raffle quilt or something.. I am glad I figured it out, becuase along with a huge headache, I lost all my gray hairs in the process!! hehe.. the book would have to be much easier ...

    Both are pretty!! The origami blocks together look like a spring table runner. Nothing like jumping to spring right now,lol!!

    anything but the snowflakes that fell today!! I had a partial jelly roll in those springy colors, and not knowing what to do , I found Eddie's quilt on here, and asked what it was, and how to do it. Its such a special day when I found this board, with all its tutorials, ect... now I know what to do with the bin I have of strips - even if they aren't the full length of yardage, I still can do baby quilts with them all.. yea! for the babies!!, and yea! for me to use the strips leftover!
