    My Scrappy!

    Here is one I did a couple years ago & mailed to Florida - can't find the pattern I used and can't remember the name!

    I was looking through this thread from the beginning and there are some amazing quilts. I don't think I've ever seen a Storm at Sea done this way before and I love it.

    So many different ways to use up those scraps!

    Thanks to all of you for sharing your pictures and ideas.

    Here's my last finish for 2012, a twin-size string quilt that will be donated to a group home for young adults that have aged out of foster care. It's 73x89 and used 8 yards from my stash.

    Toby is no help

    Hard to work on a scrappy quilt when my helper keeps lying down 'on the job'. Will post a picture when I get the top sewn together. It is from the selveges but still a scrappy and will be warm.

    Wow! GREAT string quilts! They are so fun! Well, here's my latest scrappy I call Twist and Shout, 66x75. Gone to charity already. It had a scrappy binding and was reversible but failed to get a final pic.

    n2scraplvr, I might have to try that pattern. How wide were your strips?

    I cut them 2 x 4.5" and corner block is cut 2.5 x 5. Made a template of the block minus the corner piece, laid it on top of my pieced Rail Fence and cut. Cut a 30 degree angle off your 4.5" block for your template. When sewing the corner piece, bear off before getting near the end so points aren't cut off. Wish I had done that as I did cut a few points off. Have fun!

    Thanks so much, Linda and Bev!! I love the QS scraps, Linda!

    Ladynredd, I forgot to say to square those blocks back up to 4.5 so everything will meet nicely! There are some verticals that will meet head on when blocks join! Have fun with it!

    Took me a while to see it, G, but it sure does when you look at the 4 upper blades. When you look at all 8 blades, it reminds me of windmills in Holland!

    It went to the Sandy victims in NY and I like the pattern so well that I'll probably do another. Only took 2 weeks to make. Oh, and I MQ around each of the stars so they popped out even more.

    hint: focus the eyes between the star points everyone to see the heart or windmill.

    N2 - That gorgeous quilt came briefly into our apartment - and is now wrapping a wonderful lady named Diane, my dear neighbor. Five years ago her house burned down and now she lost it again to Sandy. I can't tell you how much these quilts mean to those of us who lost our homes and everything in them. Thank you so very much.

    So good to know, K, that it's in good hands now and may she feel the Lord loving her through it! He wraps His big arms of love around each of us!! That's what it's all about!! Can't think of anyone needing this gift more than her and it's so thrilling to give!! Thank you so much, Krystyna, for your loving part in reaching out to others and overseeing that they get to those who are hurting. May the Lord bless you and all the helpers involved!!

    Barb, Beautiful quilts. I like the two-sided idea. Thanks for sharing them.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Linda, that quilt is perfect for it's purpose. It has such a lodge feel about it.
