Isn't it cool? I bought two panels and will use the other one for the other little ones in my family. I love it.
This is the front.
The cuttings were different sizes, so I used fillers to make the blocks match.
This is the first quilt I tied. That worked well, I used cotton embroidery floss, but it is hard on your fingers.
I won a great book from Quiltmaker magazine. It's Scraps & Shirttails II by Bonnie K. Hunter who writes a column about scrap quilting for the magazine.
Three fat quarters were included. How nice is that?
And the book is autographed.
Now, what is interesting about this book is that Bonnie is a big advocate of recycling, so she wrote this book to show how she uses fabric from men's shirts in some of her quilts. All of those plaids, checks and darker shades mixed with the neutrals make gorgeous quilts. I love so many of her designs; I've got to tackle a project from this book soon.
Coincidence; remember my basket blocks from a few months ago? The blocks that are still on my to do list waiting for me to sew them into a quilt top? That basket design is by Bonnie Hunter.
Hope all is well with you.
God Bless you.
