Not just about the.money because it took time to sew it all together and we all know time is money. But each piece was an opportunity.

I enjoy her videos as well. I always do reversible kind of quilts but I have never thought of using all the leftovers from the top. great idea. Thank you
The back you created is very nice and we can't be wrong as the colors match the colors of the to.

I finally got a picture of my blue and white quilt. I worked on the top for a long time and then put it away. Finally got it quilted recently. The pattern is a free one at QuiltedTwins.com . Hers has more borders, but mine seemed plenty huge enough without them. The final picture is the back.

Great finish, QuiltMom2.

Thank you joe'smom.... I got that Paris fabric a while back, when Walmart was having a massive clearance of mostly Waverly fabrics. It was $1.00 a yard! [img]/images/smilies/smile.png[/img]

I love your variety of blues, Sewbizgirl. That looks like quite a labor intensive quilt! I love Quilted Twins for scrappy patterns.

QuiltMom2, your log cabin in beautiful. Congratulations on finishing another UFO!

Thanks, NZ! I love Becky's patterns for scraps. There are several I have already made, and many more on my bucket list!
I had lots of 2.5" squares from the three years I was in the Birthday Swap, plus I cut my project leftovers into squares, too. The tricky part about doing the shading is having enough dark, medium and light value blues. But you don't have to make it shaded... just random would be pretty too.

Joe'smom....here is my latest project you wanted to see. This was a BOM in 2015, I think...I bought the pattern book in 2018 and loved the colors but the fabric line was no longer available...however, I found a charm pack of that collection and used that to match from stash and buy what I didn't have. The pattern is Quilter's Patch by Laundry Basket Quilts. So glad this is done and the project is off the shelves...tho, as I mentioned, I have tons of leftover so I'll be making a another pattern I haven't selected yet. But these are great blender fabrics so I'm cool with the leftovers. I'm FMQ'ing this myself...
