When life gives you scraps...

Make quilts!
I had a bag of scraps arrive in the mail that were from The Art Gallery.  Pat Bravo was sending out scraps to make charity quilts with.  

I love string quilts and had fun stripping an eclectic medley of 8 inch blocks.  I then set them on point and added a chartreuse solid
to frame out the blocks....

and formed a Bohemian style baby quilt!  I had it pieced on day 1 and on day 2 quilted it and added the binding .


This baby quilt will go to Project Linus and hopefully will be well used and loved.

I am glad I got the chance to try out The Art Gallery Fabrics!  They are so smooth and silky! I even see that they sell them at fabric.com! If you would like to have a chance to sew some quilts for charity, contact Pat Bravo.  You will be surprised at how wonderful the fabrics really are!  You might also try your hand at winning more of The Art Gallery Fabrics at the bunny hop!

This is gorgeous. I would love to learn how to sew! I'm still at the stage of trying to learn how to make flannel feminine pads.
