    Very Scrappy Quilt - Using up Scrappy Strips

    I am trying to use up all the strips not used in previous quilts.
    1. is the front
    2. is another of the front
    3. is the back

    This is my #17 for 2011, I doubt I get another finished for this year. Still trying to use up scraps.

    You Go, Girl!

    Jingle,

    What a great job you've done with those scrappy strips. I love all things scrappy, so I admire your latest quilt. This is #17 for the year?! I'm bowled over. I am working on quilt #7 -- for my entire life, so I am admiring your fast work. Way to go!

    My favorites are scrappies and yours is wonderful!

    These kinds of quilts always bring back memories of my Grandmother. Nannie used all scrap pieces......probably didn't have any other choice back then. Don't you find that the memories of your childhood are the memories that you treasure??

    Thank you all very much. I have been quilting for about 44yr.s, not that I machine quilt for about the last 9 yr.s I am able to make lots. I have so much fabrics, large pieces and I should be using those. I had a big tote full of scraps and decided I need to get those used up. I hate to not use them, I am donating small triangles to Goodwill.

    The other quilts for this year are in my album on here. I made 18 last year, so a little behind. My Mom made a few quilt tops but, no quilts, no room for a frame or time raising 5 kids alone.

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