    I have a stack of quilt tops that I've made, some are finished tops, some still need borders, and I haven't decided how to quilt them yet. I think I'll take the easy (but expensive) way out and take them to a long arm quilter. The scrappy rail fence was fun and easy, but barely made a dent in my 2-inch strip stash. I could probably make 20 more. The Delta Star is a pattern from Amazing Nickel Quilts (book) by Pat Speth and I used Moda charm packs for the entire thing, mostly assorted Fig Tree Quilt collections.

    Your quilt tops are lovely, Jeanelle. Good luck on finishing them. That is really the hardest part IMHO.

    Yes, Loretta, I have lots of scraps left. I used to cut squares to sell on Ebay and I would always have a little bit left over after rotary cutting a couple of yards at a time, so I would cut that last piece into 2-inch strips. I bet I have 1000 strips or more, times width of fabric. Plus several bins of other odd pieces which I can use for applique and paper piecing.

    Your quilt tops are beautiful. I am going to sit down today and put together a project list for 2010, and hopefully get some of my WIP's finished up.
