    Wonderful use of scraps. I always feel as though scraps are free. I paid for the fabric for a project and the scraps are left overs so they are kind of free. And any project I get out of them is free.

With no particular pattern in mind, there they sat until I came across Bonnie Hunter's Patches and Pinwheels pattern. I added HST and additional 4-patches from my scraps and this is what I came up with. Just finished the top yesterday. It isn't pressed and doesn't have borders but I wanted to share. I'm calling it gemstones.

    And I see the picture didn't post. Hang on while I see what I can do.

    Here we go.
    What a great idea...Very pretty...

    The name suits it perfectly...it surely is a gem. Well done! Goes to show there's a "home" for every little scrap.
