    Focus Fabric from a Scrub

    This is a "sew and flip" quilt made with a "quilt as you go" method.

    I found the Snoopy focus fabric as a scrub at a garage sale. I had not seen that print anywhere else. My brother used to draw Snoopy as the Red Baron cartoons so many years ago when we were growing up on the farm. I am hoping that one of his 3 married kids (all over 30 years old) will announce a pregnancy this year, so it can go to the new baby. If that doesn't happen (I am not holding my breath), it will go to the annual Bible Camp charity quilt auction next summer.

    What a great idea for that type of fabric! New idea for another quilt I want to make. Thank you for sharing.

    My! Too cute - how clever to use scrubs for the fabric you wanted.

    very cute!
    Were the scrubs 100% cotton?
    I've thought of using scrubs before, but they weren't all cotton. So, I wasn't sure if it would work in a quilt or not
    In my quilt lab!

    Yes, this scrub had a tag, and it was 100% cotton. For something like sew and flip that uses a stabilizer, I think a blend if it was predominately cotton would probably work ok.
