    a new scrappy for charity

    Super fast and easy, well not so fast with my current back problems LOL, but was certainly easy. Used one 2.5" square and four 2.5 x 4.5" per block that measured at 6.5" to finish at 6". Border is a dark red TOT but looks more maroon here.

    I love scrappy and this is adorable, thanks for sharing the method! To me the border looks like a deep burgany wine, and is lovely; it's funny how pictures can make a color look so different than what it is!!

    great job judy, another great scrappie
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great how using the tone-on-tone and the bars on both ends (top/bottom?) unified and structured the design.

    You are truly amazing - your mind must never shut off from quilting. You are always coming up with creative ways to use up scraps. Well done as always.
