    Started this in Feb.,whew, it's done!Thanks for all the help and lovely comments, Q'Boarders. Customer decided she didn't want the praire points on the quilt, so we put them on the matching shams, made two lap size for her sisters from the scraps and a pillow using the ten minute block. The strip on the back of the queen quilt is actually the top of the quilt, for the turn down. I couldn't get a good one right-side up.lol Have already started on another memory quilt, for our Pastor.

    Lovely job on all of them! I don't usually care for tan, but that worked well as a border on all of the other colors, and it's a nice shade of tan in itself. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    Well done. I especially like the band of matching colors across the backing. I'm going to start doing that.

    Hi there, I love all your scrappy quilts. I was playing around with my scraps this morning and thought I had come up with something new. I thought I was quite clever and that mine looked pretty good but guess what -- This is exactly the pattern I came up with and I had never seen it before. I am fairly new to quilting (only started last year) and have never seen this configeration until today.
    I started making and wearing batik dresses about thirty odd years ago and couldn't bear to throw the scraps away so saved them for when I was older to make quilts. Well, I'm there and I've started and just love love love my quilting time. I should have figured that someone had already designed this pattern making the strips into strippy squares. Guess I hadn't thought that far ahead. I have heaps of batik scraps so will not have to buy any material for quite some time. Having been a sewing person all my life I am very addicted to fabrics already.
    Just love love love this QB. Cheers from Gleniveve
