    Fq's and leftovers

    I have a growing collection of fat quarters and leftovers sitting in a drawer so during my holiday I had a play with them and came up with the following. I like the secondary diamond design that come about by moving the blocks around. Thank you for looking.

    First look at your quilt and I said "oh, I love that". Colors and pattern are great.

    Geesh I wish my messing around ended in such a beautiful quilt. You did a wonderful job. It is a great example of what our great grandma's hoped we would learn about quilting. Use what you have, use your imagination and you will come up with a quilt that is useful and loved.

    That's lovely and what a good way to use up fabric.

    Wonderful scrappy quilt! The layout is great.
