I finally finished this quilt made completely out of scraps.  I started it in a class with Marie Strait.  She was one of the speakers that the Common Threads Quilt Guild had this year.  Barbara Sindlinger gave me the purple for the border.  She said it was from a sheet.  It worked perfectly.  I think I'm going to give this as a gift.  But I really like it.  And it's hard to give it away.  A Quilter always hopes the person you give it to will love it and take of it.  But once you give it away, you don't have any control over that.

Here is another one I finished.  It was made from a Jelly Roll I've had for years!  I finally got it made.  I like it.  But it was really out of Square.  So  I added the borders to help stabilize it.  And they were really hard to make fit.

Here is a closer look.  I'm going to give this one to my Nephew and his wife for Christmas. 


  1. You do such awesome work. Thanks for showing!

  2. Pretty, pretty, pretty. I especially like the first one because I have a special fondness for mixed neutrals as a background.
