    Scrap quilt

    This morning I got the binding on this scrap quilt. I made an Xs and Os quilt top (which isn't quilted yet) and from all the snowballed corners I got all these lovely little HSTs that I couldn't bare to throw out. So I sewed them all together and concocted this little quilt top, but it was really small, so I turned it on point and added corners with something else. Now it's nearly crib size. The quilting was done by me as practice as I'm trying to learn feathers. It's really not very good, so no closeups or shots of the back. But the quilt is cute anyway.

    It is great to recycle pieces that would normally be tossed in the trash, and make such a lovely quilt out of it.
    Beautiful.

    Very pretty! Love the pink/gray combination
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
