Hi everyone! Well, the scraps are just so much fun, aren't they? I put all the blocks together, and then put this narrow border of red. I am liking it!! THANK YOU!! so much to everyone who gave an opinion last post about what to do with this scrappy top...I listened, and thank you so much for all your input!! I still have to search the stash for a border fabric. I also decided to make this a much smaller quilt, for a baby...mainly because I almost ran out of 2 inch squares. Oh the horror!! Running out of squares!! Hee!! It is not like I could not CUT some, now is it??
I also put the outside borders on our quilt along quilt from Lori and Randy!!! I am loving this...it is to be an applique border....kind of a clean slate. I could applique anything I want!!! I love the border that is designed for this quilt...but the wheels are turning...who knows what could end up here!!
My poor 2 inch box...nearly empty. Well, these squares will definitely breed more, don't worry! I am sure of it...and I feel good about using some up! Some of these squares were my mother's fabrics..they are precious to me...now she was a REAL scrappy quilter!!!! In those days, she did not go to the fabric store...she made do with scraps of dresses, aprons, whatever she could find...and her quilts are the absolute best ever!!
