    I have a stack of quilt tops that I've made, some are finished tops, some still need borders, and I haven't decided how to quilt them yet. I think I'll take the easy (but expensive) way out and take them to a long arm quilter. The scrappy rail fence was fun and easy, but barely made a dent in my 2-inch strip stash. I could probably make 20 more. The Delta Star is a pattern from Amazing Nickel Quilts (book) by Pat Speth and I used Moda charm packs for the entire thing, mostly assorted Fig Tree Quilt collections.

    Your quilt tops are lovely, Jeanelle. Good luck on finishing them. That is really the hardest part IMHO.

    Yes, Loretta, I have lots of scraps left. I used to cut squares to sell on Ebay and I would always have a little bit left over after rotary cutting a couple of yards at a time, so I would cut that last piece into 2-inch strips. I bet I have 1000 strips or more, times width of fabric. Plus several bins of other odd pieces which I can use for applique and paper piecing.

    Your quilt tops are beautiful. I am going to sit down today and put together a project list for 2010, and hopefully get some of my WIP's finished up.

    Wow! That 4rail scrappy is a beauty...and you may have given me one of the best ideas yet for the gals I retreat with twice a year. We always have a late night Strip Poker game on Saturday. We'd have more participation if we could play with shorter strips, I think, and the photo may just entice some to bet big! Thanks for sharing!

    Just curious how much you would have to pay to get them quilted. I have a mid arm & Grace table and have started quilting my own. I haven't gotten much further in the learning process than meandering. I live down I10 from you.
