    Two New Scrappy Quilts

    The idea for these two quilts was inspired by a photo here on the board. It was posted by Iris P. and titled Square Coins Scrappy. I can't find that posting now or I would provide a link to it beacause it was so pretty.
    Anyway, this is my versions of her scrappy quilt. First is a lap quilt, and Iris' quilt had cornerstone made with smaller squares. I made them also, then decided not to use them in the lap quilt.

    The mini quilt was made with 1-1/2 strips for finished coins of 3". The applique was also inpired by Iris putting Sunflower on her quilt. I wanted some little something for the mini quilt so cut the butterflies out of fabric and fused them on and then machine appliques to the top.

    Thanks everyone. The little one was sure fun to make. It been a while since I've make any little quilts, may have to make some more.

    Really like the way you use scraps. I have not been much of a scrappy type quilter, but may have to try it your way
