Can you believe it?

Look at all this fabric bounty I recently received... yes, you're seeing yardage, pieces, scraps and selvedges. I'm still in shock, myself.

Thank-you, Jacqueline and Samantha!!!!
I spent time over the past two days stitching up the scrappy bits first. * This is my playground. ;o)

I started making 'yardage' from the first generous gift of Jacqueline's scraps, oh, ages ago, and used up what I had on hand. Now that she's replenished my scrap supply with more of her yummy scraps, I got busy sewing and have enlarged my "yardage".

How about a close-up to show off all those pretty bits of fabric? Obviously, my piecing style here is called "using every bit" (meaning: no pattern/block design). It's quite fun to piece things this way and I'm pleased with how it's coming together.

I've a sizable piece to work with and I do have plans for it. Next up, I will quilt it. This has been a WIP for months and I would love to complete it for the Spring to Finish Challenge.
Can you believe how generous friends are???

  12. This scrappy quilt really inspires me! I have always sewn these type of scrappy pieces because this is the way I learned from a Mrs. Oliver. I will post her quilt on my blog soon. Anyways, it inspires me to get back to this type of quilting!
