SCRAP QUILT



It's Monday and another start of a new week! Here in Colorado we are expecting high temps in the 70's to lows in the 40's, (day temps, I'm talking here)! Yes, sunshine and snow, all coming in this week. Coloradans in Spring time have the privilege of experiencing all four season in a week and often in a 24 hour period. Never dull!

I finished a 9 month long project of a 3" scrap block quilt. Those nine patches are 1' squares and this quilt is BIG. My favorite quilts are scrap quilts, all the different fabrics and colors make my heart soar. Scrap quilts, also give the opportunity to use up all the "scraps". Fabric has become very expensive and throwing out scraps for me is a SIN. Use it up or do without!
This quilt I will be keeping, so many fabric memories sewn in this baby.

I best get out in the sunshine before I have to don the parka and boots.
