    Yet another treasure from trash

    This will be the last of the large scale florals from the fabric sample books. I changed my pattern slightly, made the solids symmetrical this time.

    My next project will be an interesting challenge. A family friend saw my previous quilt and asked if I could make her the same sort of thing but as 2 curtain panels to block out the morning light. I've hit the dregs of the complete large scale flowers, I think I have a couple left. I have some in a smaller scale and then some partial flowers. I have a few ideas, I think these curtains will be very eclectic and original. I'll post pics when they are done.

    I love how simple and classic your quilts are. They look great!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Great way to use the samples that most would just throw away. Very nice.

    Very pretty.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    looks very modern, great creativity, that would make a lovely wall hanging in an obvious place where you could see it every day!

    Thanks for all the kind words fellow quilters.

    "just the scraps m'am" - I agree it would look great on a wall. Unfortunately I have no bare walls to put it on! I have it folded over the back of my sofa but due to the configuration of the sofa, only 1/4 of the quilt is visible. I'm kind of bummed about that.

    I am having fun making the 3rd one which will be the quilted curtains for the family friend (2 panels - each one will be 30 x 70) I'm starting with 10" blocks. So far I have made 4 squares with 7" intact flowers with 2" borders around them. I have another 8 to go. I'm using solid brocade for the borders, it was another fabric sample book. (I'm not sure yet that I like how this is going.....). I need a total of 30 - 10" (or so) squares. If they don't come out to exactly 10", I'll just change the border size. I have a pile of incomplete flowers that are smaller than 7". I have not decided yet if I'll put larger borders on them to make them 10" square or if I'll have rows of smaller sized blocks mixed in the quilt. I saw that in an exhibit recently and it looks pretty cool. (Was this way too much detail???)

    The colors are very pretty. The quilting really pops.

    This is a very pretty curtain panel. The solids and sashing in this makes it look like a window.
