Happy to be Scrappy

Happy to be Scrappy

Today I turned in the answers to the questions Quiltmaker needed from the sewers. Easy questions like - Why do you quilt?  Not necessarily so easy to put into words.  Anyway, it is done and over except to wait for them to post all of the quilts.  It was a great project to work on.  And everyone that participated was very positive and encouraging the entire time. 

Since I still can't show the quilt I thought I'd show pictures of a quilt I made a few years ago.  I first posted pictures of this on my HGTV Share My Quilt page in 2010.  I haven't posted to that site since 2010.  I had forgotten some of the quilts that I had on there. 

This quilt started with the flower fabric and I have no idea where it came from.  I probably got it on one of the shop hops we've been on.  What little of it was left has been cut up and put into some of the scrap quilts I've made.  There are little mice on the fabric so once or twice I have fussy cut those and put them in my blocks.  I'm sure there is a mouse or two in my bow tie quilt. 

When I made this quilt I was going to hang it on my living room wall but Jennifer made such a fuss over it that I gave it to her.  Yesterday when we were taking pictures of me to send in to Quiltmaker I ended up standing in front of this quilt. So my picture will be very colorful.  I'm hoping that the quilt will be what draws the attention and not me.  :)

 Now that I have found pictures of all those "old" quilts I'll try from time to time to post about some of them or all of them.

Happy sewing,
