    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    That string star is really neat!

    That is very striking. Wish I had enough 'lights' to do one like this.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Here it is with all the blocks done, now she is starting on the border star blocks as well.
    The sun was shining in the window sorry about the bad pics.

    I am calling this one scrappy.One I am working on I got this top at a resale shop for 20.00 needed finished. I thought it would be great practice and have something when i was done.

    Mom said the strips were ripped not cut, I don't know anything of that method.

    Here is one of my favorite scrappy quilts, Crab Apples by Bonnie Hunter. I've never posted a picture before, so I'm hoping it works.

    Future Quilter--a fantastic star your mother is making--so vibrant!
    sewplease--you got rid of alot of small squares. The red sashing sets the blocks off so well. Nicely done.
    Don't worry spider.

    I pieced this last fall and it still hasn't gotten quilted. I would come home from work (teacher) and think I would do just one tree and then grade papers...but it never turned out that way. My poor students had to wait quite some time to get their work back, haha. The little squares finish at an inch and it actually went together very easily. This was the first Bonnie Hunter quilt I did from one of her books. When you cut up your scraps, it's amazing how fast those little pieces can accumulate. I find this kind of piecing very therapeutic. :-) Laura
