Memory bedspread pieced!

With 10 years of fabric scraps and almost three spools of thread later my king size bedspread top is finished and ready to be sent off for long arm quilting. This the first truly scrap quilt that I have ever made. The project brought back some lovely memories and helped me let go of some issues I have with mixing patterned fabrics.

New Scrappy Quilt

Over the Christmas break I repurposed the last of my scrap heap into strips for a king sized scrap quilt. So far I have managed to make a 140 of the 160 – 8 1/2″ blocks need for the top.

hopefully within the next week the final blocks will be completed and then the block layout fun begins.

Having fun with scraps

I have fun out of room in my scrap container so I have decided to make a number of paper pieced units with the larger scraps and string block with the narrower scraps. I created the first of the paper pieced units this weekend. What do you think of the person in the rain?
