    Pastel scrapy quilt

    This quilt was made from scraps from 2 other quilts! This summer I decided that as each project was completed, the left over scraps had to be cut and organized. First I cut 5 " sqs(charms), then 2 1/2" strips(jelly rolls), then 2 1/2" sqs from smaller pieces. I also cut 1 1/2" strips or sqs for a postage stamp quilt. I love not having all those pieces scattered all over and it is so easy to start a scrap project.

    I love how the use of florals, plaids, and tones on tones, all come together to make such a beautiful quilt. I want to do a quilt with plaids and this shows how they can work with other designs. And I love your organization of left overs. That I should be so organized. I am always just too anxious to get on to the next project. May have to slow down and try that. Great hint
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    It turned out wonderful. Nice job. Just goes to show what you can do with a few scraps.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
