    A Cheater

    I acquired this fabric in a trade.
    I couldn't make myself cut it up so I used it as a cheater top.
    I did simple straight-line quilting in 3 different colors to surround the nosegays.
    For donation.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Lovely. The cross stitch motif is so old fashioned and delicate.

    Pretty quilt, I don't think every fabric needs to be cut.

    Sometimes the fabric tells us what to do with it. It is pretty, and will be loved.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    What pretty fabric! What you did with it is perfect.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I don't blame you. That's a beautiful print and I also would have a hard time cutting it up. Turned out great!.

    Very nice. In my guild we call it “Opportunity Cloth” nothing wrong with that.

    There's really very little 'cheating' in quilting, in my opinion , so I call these efficiency panels or fabrics.

    That was a good idea. I would have had trouble cutting it up too.
    I made it to the mtns and love every minute of it!

    I think sometimes we become so stuck in the piecing and cutting, we forget about the quilt. I think that is quite lovely!
