    scrappy quilts

    I was determined I would use some of my scraps before starting another project. Got out my box of half square triangles and put together a quilt I sent to my brother and sister-in-law in MA to snuggle with on their cold nights and the other is just pieces of some solids I had.

    Great scrappy quilts! Scrappy quilts are so much fun to put together. It is always rewarding to complete such beautiful projects.
    Your quilting on the second quilt is interesting. It looks to be a zigzag stitch on the diagonal ... is it that simple?

    Love both of your quilts. I just finished my very first two scrappys and found it very satisfying. There's a special coziness about a scrappy also.

    Beautiful quilts. I'm in a scrappy mood too. If you don't use them, they will overpower you.

    Pretty quilts!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
