Sweet Sewing . . .

Remember this little charm pack I showed you last week . . .


It became a whole bunch of 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" squares, added some plain white fabric . . . and then some happy little circles . . . and then . . .



it became this!

Such a fun, sweet little project . . . kind of like a little stress reliever in amongst a whole bunch of things going on. Randy says he doesn't like it . . . looks like a dog's breakfast! He's used to seeing the nicely coordinated, "put-together" kind of quilts I have been making over the past few years. He's not used to seeing all the colors mish-mashed together.

I like it! I think it looks like a very happy, scrappy little quilt. Love those skinny little borders - I don't think I've done 1" finished borders for a very long time - need to do more. Plus I have a plan for it. Every year the local Communities In Bloom committee chooses a theme for the town and this year it is "Quilted In Color". So I want to do a front doorstep display and incorporate this little quilt into it. I expect I may be the only one in town with an actual quilt displayed amongst my flowers, but I think it will look great. I fully expect that the colors will fade over the Summer, but it didn't cost me a whole bunch of money or time and I expect to get some wonderful enjoyment out of. Everyday when I pull into the driveway, I will see all the flowers PLUS my little happy quilt!
'til next time,
M.

Scrappy quilts are great, a real 'no brainer'! It looks so sweet too.
