    #4 of 3013 mission to use scraps

    Top #4 completed. Just string blocks. It is 70 x 93. Pic is not real good due to light coming in my windows. Cant see bottom border too much as it is lying on the floor but you get the idea. My scrap bins do not appear to have been depleted any, so on to #5. Also a pic of U of Alabama wallhanging I have been working on, added a few more of the applique pieces so the elephant is all done. Now deciding on borders for it. Will probably go to a son who is a fan.

    This looks almost like stained glass, especially with the blue fabric around each square.

    Beautiful scrappy, lots of nice colors. I made about 7 scrappy quilts and still have tons of scraps.

    It is beautiful with the purple to tie it together!

    But do you think you have enough scraps for the next 1000 years?!!!!!

    Beautiful quilt! I believe scraps multiply on their own.

    I LOVE your scrappy!! Isn't it funny how your scraps multiply even when you use miles of them??

    Very striking Thelma, with the quilt top in front of the window, it almost looks a a stained glass, or like it has a small black grout, maybe an idea for your next scrappy top. I LIKE it !!! Thanks for posting.
