Busy with my scraps
I am not sure I knew exactly how many scraps I had when I started...but I know I won't run low, lol. I picked this top up at the flea marketp. I heart this quilt top. Very much a scrap quilt, no pattern, just strips. I would love to hand quilt this for me soon.
Here are a few scraps and bigger pieces. I love the Southwest colors and patterns. I sorted the Christmas into one basket.
Now the wool needs to be steam pressed and sorted. It's getting to hot to work with it now... I might wait for fall or at least a cooler day. Did you know Kellie from Don't Look Now also has a mini quilt with pattern in Whip Up Mini Quilts? I am loving this book. Along with all the quilts and patterns, there is a mini bio on the artists along with thier blog spots...so perfect! This book is so awe inspiring. Back to my ironing and sorting.
