I busted 4 yards for backing, on a quilt, sifting thru for some more backings on quilts today.

Great job of using your stash, Myra! I really love the purple one.

Trying to get some things done this weekend. Have to leave for Atlanta (Conyers, actually) on Wednesday. My BIL died on Thursday and we're going down to be with my sister for a few days and to attend the memorial service. Trying to finish another Quilt of Valor first - it's totally stash also. I'll post a picture of it (it's in progress, almost finished).
Lois M, the largest blocks in my Scrappy Asian are 6", I believe. The pattern is downstairs and I'm trying to remember. I have to take some pictures and post them tomorrow, so I'll pull the pattern back out and check that at the same time. I had plenty of the flower blocks to make a 3rd quilt, but not enough of the black and that gold/white. I'll find something else in my stash and start another. Thought I'd try that butterfly pattern everyone was talking about in the very first pages of this thread. But, Atlanta first and then home again and back to my comfortable grind.
Live today as if it may be your last, for who knows...
Thank you for taking the time to respond, Kathleen. I'm very sorry for your loss. I'm sure you'll be a great comfort to your sister.
Kathleen sorry about your loss
I started working on this idea this week. I started making lapquilts for neices and nephews for Christmas. I made about 40 half log cabins in three hours thiswee. I will post when I get some things done. Most of this is from my stash. I am buying some blacks and greys since I don't have many of those and that is what one of my neice wants.
Kathleen's quilt is, I think, Scrappy Asian Road from the Oct 2011 issue of Quilters World.
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
