It's Done!

Remember these I shared with you during a previous post?



After a few hours (and a backache or two from working in the floor and at the machine), I have a quilt top.


I'm in love with scrap quilts for so many reasons. They are economical and such a great way to repurpose fabric. They can have such a story behind them.

Remember, ladies, save those special t-shirts of family members to repurpose as well. They make awesome quilts. (If you didn't see Rick's "Harley" quilt I did for him last Christmas, you can see it here.)

  10. That is beautiful! I thought of making a quilt out of the scraps leftover from the dresses I'd made for my daughter throughout the years...ONE DAY after finally throwing the scraps out. I ran to the dumpster, but the dumpster man had already been here and gone. :-(((

    Never throw anything out!! within reason.
