The rest of the story

I forgot to finish my Friday Favorites with the postings about using scraps.  Here is the rest of the story.

Kate North and I were having the same scrapppy problem.  Here is the solution block she designed and a couple of quilts she has put together.  I have just directed you to her blog since there is more than one posting about the scrap quilts.

And didn't Amanda Jean do a marvelous job on her Apple Cake quilt?  It is all hand applique but I see no reason why it could not be machine pieced.  Although, come to think of it, I am looking for a project to do while I sit beside my husband on the couch.  This could be it.

Kathy Loomis has her own approach to leftovers.  One of her statements got me to thinking.  She talked about her "real" quilt.  I think by that she means that she makes a small quilt using her idea before she tackles the larger more important quilt, like Nancy had us do at the Barn.  Nice to know that time consuming but ultimately time saving trick.

Okay, that was the rest of the story.  I am now going back to finish coloring my latest fabric doodle.  Pictures later.
