    From what someone didn't want!

    The embroidered squares were given to me by someone who didn't want them! I thought they were so cute. I had fun putting them in to a quilt and quilting it. Now, I will hang it on my wall in the my LA room for a while until I decide who I'm going to give it to. BTW, the orange butterfly fabric was donated to me, again someone didn't want it any more. (you may have seen it in several of my quilts and I still have more of it. It was all 9"x12"'s pieces but I think that I have but them to good use.) The green was from a yard sale. Only the white did I purchase, oh and the batting.

    Isn't it amazing what others don't value (and should be valued) can be turned into something so beautiful? Your quilting really added to it, too. Great job!

    You did an amazing job with give away and yard sale items! Better than I do most times when I just go and pick it out!!!
