    I thought I would start a topic for things we are working on. Anyone can post theirs here too. I have several but will just add a couple a day. Then as each gets finished...you can make a new topic with the title and your finished picture. :-) Hope this is ok.
    Here is my first one. I call it Kissing Fish and Pinwheels. Working on trying to get the leftover pieces used up as border. Will probably struggle with what to do when I come to the corners as I am sure it won't come out perfect. Might make red and tan corner squares as I plan to quilt it with red thread. (or send it out).

    Sorry to say I didn't and can't take credit for the idea either. One of the ladies in our guild gave us pointers. Frankly, we started it last summer and if I had to do another, I would have to really stop and think about it; like how we cut out blocks..I am thinking something like 8.5. Sewed diagonally both ways (after drawing the lines), cut and then there were 4 little HST sections made. The tan sections were 8 inch squares. Sorry to be so vague. You can see why it is a wip. :-(

    Thought I would show (bore) you with two more of my UFO's. One is a string quilt I am using up scraps with. I call it my spider web quilt. I may be about 1/4th done.
    The other is another scrappy one made using the smallest crumbs. I think I use anything at least 1.5 inches and then just keep adding to it. Triangles that have been cut off corners are especially good. I call it my diamond scrappy. Will put some kind of solid sashing between blocks when I decide on a good color. These all will take me at least another year to finish.

    Please post yours on here if it is still a wip. Would love to compare. I am always amazed at how the same pattern done by two differnet folks looks so different.

    Very pretty and interesting! I like the scrappy one the best. Do I recognize any of the scraps? Surely not. What I sent you was so tiny! Great job on all!
