A New Project!!


I have not posted for well over a month as I have been busy with a new project, using up all my scraps of material that i have collected over the years.  This is my first ever quilt but I so enjoyed making it that I know there will be more!  Its only a simple square design and only a lap sized quilt but I am thrilled with the finished result. Also my scrap pile is alot smaller!!




This is a back view, to save money with buying a big piece of fabric for the backing I have used a bed sheet but just added a panel of more scraps of material.




For a finishing touch I also added a label!!

I hope to find time now to visit a few of my favorite blogs!
