    Same pattern - 2 different looks

    After being in a cast for my broken arm for 6 weeks, then in a splint for what will be 2 additional weeks, I tried to sew a week after they removed the cast. Oh, my sweet little machine, how I have missed you! The pieces for these two charity quilts had been cut out waiting to be sewn together. Took me a little over a day working on and off to do each of the quilts but I like the result. They were sewn with 4-1/2" squares for the 4-patch, with sashing cut at 1-1/4" and borders cut at 2-1/2". Only 1 more week and I will be able to cut fabric again! Hooray!

    This is the kind of scrappy I love -- and I can handle. The difference is amazing!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Thanks for sharing. I'm trying to decide on a sashing for a bear paw.

    great scrappies Judy. I cannot imagine what you've been going through. I would be nuts after just one week let alone six weeks. Happy that you're back in the swing of things.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Different fabrics and colors always changes the look of the same pattern.
    Very pretty quilt tops, glad you are able to sew again.

    Welcome back to your sewing machine. Glad your sewing again. Pretty quilts too. Amazing how doing the same quilt with different fabrics look so different. It's like the mystery train rides. We're all working on the same pattern and end up with different looking quilts.

    After all that time, I'm sure you were thankful to be able to sew again. I had my right shoulder replaced in May, of course I'm right handed, so I was going a little stir crazy not being able to quilt. Unfortunately, I didn't have any projects ready to work on, but I was thrilled when I could get back to sewing and quilting again.
