Welcome Quilters!!!!


Earlier this week I finished a table quilt and posted about it here. I practiced free motion quilting around the figures, and stitched in the ditch on the border.This is the sister to my earlier quilt. I have gotten into the habit of cutting up my scraps before putting them away. It makes it more tempting to pull them out and make something later! Well, these never got put away!! They looked like Indian Corn to me, and I love Indian Corn in the Fall. Probably the purple.

I had already cut the bigger scraps into napkins. Compulsive I know! Anyway, I had to use them for the back. So this little quilt was my happy accident, and made with nothing but scraps!!




Truly a harvest blessing if you ask me!!!
Blessings,
KT

  4. How industrious you are.......it's true that it's so much more tempting to use those leftovers when they're already cut up and ready to sew..............what a great idea. I may just steal it, if you don't mind !

    Wonderful job !

  5. Wonderful job! I always cut extra strips whenever I cut fabric, too. Not only are they ready to use, but they add to a growing basket of strings for string quilts and other projects.

  8. The colors and fabrics are great and I love the thought of quilting around the figures. My travel laptop doesn't work as well as the desktop at home.

  9. I love the idea of cutting scraps up when they are out. Once I put them away, they are never used again. :(

    Great projects posted here today!
