    Candace I love the quilt! That red and black just pop, and what a contemporary design! So different from my work! What size is that quilt? It must be for her college apartment? Wow, I have seen a few contemporary quilts, but I usually don't particularly care for them. Your quilt is stunning!

    Candace that is a pretty quilt. I reminds me of a Roman mosaic floor with a bit of modern patterns added. I have never seen a strip quilt with each strip being detailed. I like this idea!!! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks, it's about a twin size. The BOM/Strip of the month was to get us outside our box and make us think about using these designs for borders instead of slapping some fabric on to enlarge a quilt. What I was left with, were a bunch of strips all different sizes that I knew had to be made into a quilt or they'd never be used. The colors are my DD's favorites and the minute she saw it, she claimed it:> It's not something I would have set out to make, but a good learning experience with small piecing and accuracy. Some of the pieces were an inch!

    Fred post your quilt, we'd love to see it. Just do a "reply with Quote." You will see a line of icons at the top, click on the one that looks like a picture frame. Make sure you select "from computer" at the next screen. Click on the "browse" button, go to your photo (somewhere already loaded on your computer), select that photo so the address appears in the "browse" line, then just download. Wait a few seconds and your photo will appear. Then you can "Post quick reply" or "Go Advanced" to get it to load here.

    Finally found a use for my little scrap triangles left over from my star quilt. This quilt cost me $9. I bought a flannel back for it. Moving up north from Az next year. Everything I sew now has that in mind.

    I like how you've mixed the blocks of squares and half-square triangles. It looks very scrappy and cozy.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Well, not a quilt but I pieced on a bouncy Spartan. Getting the corners to turn was the trick. It's done like a block toy, by leaving the corners you turn open beyond the seam.

    Kat, love the scrappy quilt! Geeze, you are going from Arizona to up north? What a difference the weather is going to be for you - I doubt you use quilts much in Arizona!

    Miriam, what a cute patchwork bag! Nice job!

    Neat bags Miriam. Is there a specific pattern you used? My sister might like to try something like that.

    I saw one and copied it. I made 49 pictures - not easy project - here is the layout - Bennett you could figure it out - leave turned corner seams open to seam allowance so they can be turned.

    AZ KAT, I love the quilt. I've filed the pic to use for ideas for some of our scraps.

    About leaving Arizona .... you have my deepest sympathies. I sincerely hope you don't end up regretting it.
    My wife and I left AZ in 98. We have been fighting tooth and nail to get back. There is simply not enough money to make the move.

    Miriam - I'm still working on the puzzle bag. My brain is a bit slow when it comes to the third dimension.

    ArizonaKAT - what a wonderful way to use up the scraps! The colours are really pretty.

    Candace - the red black and white are really effective together - such an attractive quilt!

    I did a tutorial but the QB ate the pictures - they really were there once upon a time. Go figure.
