Blogger's Quilt Festival--Scrap Quilt

It's that time of year again, and Amy is hosting the 
 This time I'm featuring my latest finish. This quilt was made with the leftover scraps from my Flower Box Quilt.  
I love scrap quilts, and I love stripe quilts--this one is both!
 I love how the quilting turned out! I used my favorite slightly variegated green thread. 
The backing is a sage green super soft minkie. 
 This quilt measures approximately 37" x 52".
It is for sale, and is listed in my shop.

I love to have comments left on my blog, and I try to respond to all of them, especially when I'm asked questions. Unfortunately a lot of bloggers are "no reply". So when I reply to your comment it just goes to??? well who knows where. Maybe internet waist land.  
Jodi wrote a great post to tell you how you can remedy that. You can find it HERE.


Here's a peek at what's going on at my house. ;)

Fresh Cut Flower Boxes

Yes, more Fresh Cut.
Because I love it.
Add in some Amy Butler wallflower and a few others... Heaven.

I was inspired by a quilt on Flickr. I thought this would be a great way to use lots of my favorite fabrics. 
I quilted a flower in the middle of each of the center squares in a coral thread. Then I did loops with leaves all over the rest in green. Of course it has a minkee back.
This one is going to live with me. I can't wait to snuggle up on the couch with it and my Kindle.
And yes....I do have even more Fresh Cut on the way. I'm addicted.

Scrap Giveaway

Jodi at Pleasant Home is hosting a Scrap Sew Along!



I have to admit, I am a scrap hoarder. I keep every little piece. I just happen to love them all, I would hate for any of my fabrics to go to waste! This is a photo of what my table looks like when I'm making "crumb blocks".
  I'm happy to share some of my scraps with one lucky winner. I will be stuffing a flat rate envelope. Just leave me a comment by Halloween, and I'll pick a winner on Monday.
Some of my very favorite quilts are ones made from my scraps. 
 Go visit Jodi, and get lots of great idea's, and meet lots of bloggers giving away scraps too!
Giveaway closed--Thanks!
