    Skip, what a great quilt! I love purple, the carpenter's pattern, and an interesting backing is always a plus.

    Sharon, your log cabin is beautiful. I too love scrap quilts and like that you made scrappy binding.

    Thank you, JudyTheSewer! My scrap quilts usually have a scrappy binding, it helps to tie it all together.

    I love making scrap quilts, currently working on a String Star quilt.
    I'm not sure which category to put it in though.
    Here's a short video of me sewing some of the blocks. I'm using a 1914 Singer 115 treadle.

    Here is the potholder quilt I've been working on. Sewing groups made them during the Civil war for wounded soldiers in the hospital. They would agree on a size, piece, quilt, and bind them then whipstitch them together when the group met. Many of the wounded died and were buried with their quilt so we don't see many of them.

    Mine is all different patterns and sizes. I keep making customized blocks to fill in. There is a 3 x 4 inch hole right in the center that my rescued doggie puts her head through to keep an eye on me while I stitch.
