Scrappiest yet!

Well, all that scrappy just screamed for SOMETHING to pull those crazy blocks together into one cogent whole...or not...  So...I put a little black border around each block.  I think it makes it look like scrappy blocks with a black border...SNORT!!  Really, I like it...and I am making scrappy sashing with red cornerstones.


So, how is your scrappin' going?  How is your day?

I hope it is terrific!!

*LOL* You are so funny!
I think it achieved your desired results--sort of stained glass-ish. : )

You don't waste any time, do you?! I'm impressed with how quickly you've sewn this quilt, especially because I know stitching strings together is not necessarily a speedy process. The blocks are very fun!

Whoops! I just left a comment as Sparkle Jane, but I am sure she feels the same.

You frequently mention that this will be patient bed size. What is that size?

Thanks for the help? I want to make quilts for a VA nursing home and was interested in bed size I should strive for.
