Finished


I finished up the scrap quilt I was working on.

DSCN2375It is made with fabric scraps and uses blocks from the 2012 Block of the Month Class on Craftsy.

I backed it with flannel so it it quite cozy.  We sure don’t need it here in Florida this winter.  Guess what the grandkids are getting for Christmas this year.

    1. It is not so much talent as dogged determination. (I should save that for my own alphabet blog.) Thank-you!

  3. I bet the grands will love it! My Mom made a quilt for Amara that she just cherishes -- not because it is an awesome quilt but because Great Grandma made it for her. Yours is beautiful and I am willing to fight Susan for it!

    1. Amara is a sweetheart. I am still in the practice stage of quilting, but i really have been enjoying my new hobby.

  4. That is beautiful. I'm sure those grands will think of their grandma every time they snuggle with their warm quilt.

    1. Well, between Mike and myself, we have eight grand kids. I think I am going to have to spread out the homemade gift giving a bit.

    1. Thanks, Sally. It is not quite a crazy quilt, but I did use a lot of scrap material. I keep telling myself I am learning from my mistakes. What I learned: My next quilt will be much simpler.

  6. I'm in awe of people who can sew and make lovely, serviceable items. Giving a gift of your handiwork is very special. A friend gave me a crochet afghan, and I think of her whenever I see it.

    1. I was given a quilt at my retirement party. Colleagues had each contributed a square and our secretary put it together. I do treasure it.

  7. Like Barb, I don't quilt but love seeing what others do. Lovely job. Quilts to me always seem to have heirloom stamped all over them.

    1. This is kind of a quirky one, but I have it in mind for a quirky grand child.

  8. What a large amount of skilled work. I started quilting once a long time ago, but got too lazy. Lucky grandchildren.

  9. This one was a lot of work because the blocks were all different and I had to learn each one. I enjoy it though.

  12. Super work! Now let's hope the kids don't read your blog or the surprise will be ruined.
