Saturday.

O.K.
Just for the record.
I TOTALLY love baby quilts.
I love the colors.
I love the simplicity.
I love the size!!! :0

I even love using up bits and pieces.

Old bits and pieces.
Since the scraps were different in size..
that meant that...
 the little squares in the centers were different in size!
I had to keep my brain cells moving...
figuring out what size pieces I needed to get to a 10" square.
PLUS.... I wanted the center squares to move around some.
It slowed me down a bit.
That's alright.
My brain cells need a little activity once in a while. ;)

This little quilt is a collection piece.
A collection of this and that.
Old and new.
Stripes and dots.
Flowers and FUN!!!!

Collection quilts have a drawback.
Putting everything away after you've been
DIGGING around!!!
;)

  3. What a great quilt from a little of this and that.....like stone soup huh? Oh yes the cleaning up after digging out fabric.......it is a bother! Would it be divine to have a maid do this for us?

    (I may have been watching too much Downton Abbey)

    Happy Sewing

  11. Hi Beth, I love the fabrics from those old abandoned sewing projects. One finds the best prints in those pieces. I also love the way the centers move around you little quilt. It's another very pretty project.
