As I said, I love it, love it, love it. Looks like the kodachrome strips are all different lengths, right?[/QU hi jem39, thank to you an all who like Kodachrome



    I starred with an old roll of calulator tape but only had one roll. So I cmpromised ,it measured 2 1/4 inches wide so I just cut newspaper to that width. The sashing is 1.5 inchs wide. It's about 72 inches square. I think what makes the strips look dif length is the few black pieces in the strips.
    OMG.....I have 4 rolls of tape...now I know why I bought them!!!!! Thanks for the inspiration...

    Auntjo,...Wow! You are one of those folks I admire if you have finished a FW quilt. I do not even have one on my bucket list because I know I will never live long enough to finish. I should have started in my twenties. LOL But yours is lovely. I do however plan to make Bonnie's CS...hopefully in 2016. My list for this year is already one quilt over budget! Thanks for sharing pictures.

    Barb, I love your scrappies and especially love the way you photographed them in the clover patch! I think I see a 4-leaf clover in there!

    Great finishes everyone! Auntjo, my daughter has been working on her farmer's wife for a few years now. I linked her to this to see yours. I wouldn't have the patience!

    Just finished this flimsy for the Mystery Train Ride #8. Not sure how to quilt it though. Think I might tie this one.

    DD, Awesome job on the quilt. I like it very much and I agree that tying this one might be a good choice.

    I did my #8 mystery without the final border and just did stitch in the ditch and then quartered the blocks to make the batt stay together in the washer.

    After reading each and every post in this topic, all I can say is wow. Our GGG mothers made scrap quilts to keep their families warm, if that reason was good enough for them, it is good enough for me. Since I have never made a quilt from a fabric collection or someone else's fabric choices, I guess you called say all of my quilts fall under scrappy. I also do not aspire to show any of my quilts, I am OK with 'done is better than perfect' too. I still work to make them better with each quilt, but I don't lose any sleep over 'not quite perfect'. I started this hobby to keep my hands busy, and it still meets that need. I will continue until it starts causing stress....where is that chocolate bar I just had? Lol!

    I really like your star design! Did you find it in a pattern?

    Star Struck (Bonnie Hunter ~ quiltville free pattern)

    Just finish, top. Size approx. 70x90 Scrap, scraps and more scraps, will I ever use them up.

    Mondo Bags small and large. The larger one I made with HST (aka goose poop/left overs) that I had sitting around to use one day . . . the large bag takes 208 2.5 squares ... I had 204 in a bag.

    In a years time I have made 2 scrap lap quilt, 2 baby scrap quilts and 3 scrap Mondo bags. And 7 clothes line baskets. And I STILL have scraps cluttering my sewing room.
