A Fun Scrappy Quilt

I've been meaning to take photos of a few finished quilts ..... but life keeps getting in the way.

This was a sweet and easy quilt to make and it went together very quickly.  A perfect quilt for donation.  

Can you see the snow in the background of the above photo?  Unless we have a thaw, this snow will be staying until the spring.

Quilt details:

You know .... some squirrels came by to play and before I knew it, a new project!  LOL

I was reading on this blog about her finished quilt and knew that I had to get the pattern going and start making my own quilt too.  The pattern is from Sentimental Stitches called Fragments of Cloth.  If you compare, my version has been changed up a bit.

All the blocks were made mostly from my scraps!  I had to dig into my stash for the last few remaining blocks to get a good variety.  Next up will be to start sewing the rows together.    Was there a dent made in the scrap bins?  Nada .... but in the process, I did get a zippy bag of scraps ready for donation to my guild.  Win-win situation!
Not to be outdone, this oldie project is off the shelf and has been worked on.  There will be applique on the top border, but it has to be reduced as it looks too big right now and is overpowering the bottom section.
Stuff is getting done, but it is just taking time.

Cherish your day, cherish your life!

The donation quilt is pretty. Love the applique border you are going to use for those lovely hexies. I must say, the banner photo is a beauty. Such a sweet little quilt.

Well done on the finish! Love the scrappy squirrel......and no, it will take more than one quilt to reduce your stash, I think. You are right about the scale of the applique.

Your scrappy project looks very pretty! The hexies will look very nice with applique at the top, happy stitching!

Lots of progress on three lovely quilts. Scrappy is always beautiful.
