    Scrappy Quilts

    I LOVE scrappy quilting. Friend's now give me their scraps. And here are a couple of examples of what I do with them. The one with the light gray strips around the 16 patch is a Bonnie K. Hunter pattern, the other is Katie's Quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Co. I have tons more of various sizes I do for a charity group.

    Jacki I'm with you on not getting UFOs finished. Stash busting is lots more fun! Working on two right now. Not sure I like the last row on the light colored side of the log cabin one. Can't decide if it enhances or detracts. Pictures to follow.

    The pattern on that fabric creates a secondary focal point. I think it looks great.

    I agree with madquilter. The log cabin is looking good.

    Thanks y'all for the confirmation on my print for the log cabin. It is the only thing I had that coordinated properly color wise, but I wasn't sure if was to big a contrast and too "in your face" for the rest of it. And it does sort of repeat the peacock design on the center square. You know how you get to second guessing yourself. Lol!

    I turned in two little quilts to community service at the guild last night. Of course I didn't take pictures. But at least I got something done FROM STASH.

    That will be so cozy and warm. Flannel is the perfect snuggle fabric.

    Now I have more to "bust". Came home from quilt guild last night with 2 huge bags of scraps and a bunch of kits and patterns. If the one lady is getting rid of that much, how much does she still have at home. She's single and I asked her if she had a will and who her stuff was going to. She just patted me on the shoulder and smiled.lol
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Thanks for the link! There are a lot of free beautiful patterns at that link. I downloaded the Tonga Neptune from a sidebar link. The template looks like a leaf and with a compass (from our algebra/math classes) another can be made smaller or it can be reduced using the printer.

    How adorable! Ooh, and that gives me an idea for a Christmas gift! The man's boss/best friend and his wife have those trays that are in your first string blocks photo. I hate using them because things slide on theirs. I know they have 4 trays, so if I can find out what the inside dimensions are, I could make some lil placemats for them! I always struggle so with what to give them....

    DMomma just measured the tray and it's just over 11 x 17. I use my tray on top of our fabric ottoman-- makes a more stable place to set a glass or can or corral the remote--but Grands never leave it there so am always searching for it anyway.

    OOH! Thank you! Now to observe whether they have 4 or 6 of them. Actually, I think I'll make 6, then they can use them at the kitchen table too if they want. HAPPY! HAPPY!

    OK, that makes 15 projects on my list, lol. I really gotta get some finished! 4 have to be done by Friday. Guess you know where I'll be today & tomorrow!
