Can you say SCRAPPY!


I went to sew with another group today and finally finished assembling this quilt top (flimsy). These are blocks that eight of us exchanged for 20 months (way too long). There is such a variety of fabric in this quilt that some of the girls were a bit concerned about how it would look when it was finished but we all love it. LOL Most of us used this particular setting.

Darlene, this one is incredible ! It took me a few minutes to "dismount" the block, and see how it is constructed... I'm in awe, how a "simple" block and a clever setting, can give such a result !
My problem with your quilt is that, each time you show a new one, my reaction is :"this one is my favourite !"... LOL

GREAT job, dear ! You're my "guru" !

Biiig hugs & smiles !

Gorgeous! I just love it! Have you finished any of your flimsies lately?

Unknown said...

Love it, for someone who didn't do anything the day before, you certainly made up for it. I'm with Leigh, does your red cabinet have a bottom to it?

Susan said...

Wow........... This would look great in the fabric I am getting in the grab bags from Homestead Hearth. Let me see now - this quilt, the one you pictured below, a broken dish quilt like Patti made...... I simply cannot keep up with you all.

Beth said...

I love it! I"m now searching for some of your past moda sample block quilts. I got a bunch of them at Hancock's of Paducah and want to make a table topper for my aunt with them! I won't even tell you how cheap they discounted them!

I love scrappy more than any other kind of quilt. Yours looks like so much fun, even if it was a long haul. It's worth it now seeing the quilt.

ForestJane said...

Wow, I really like the diagonal lines you get with that pattern! But then, looking at it, suddenly you see the squares underneath it... cool effect!

Jenni said...

Another great scrappy quilt. 20 months is a long time!
