In between reading and responding to your comments, I was finally able to finish up my Scrappy Quilt top! I did quilting-as-you-go, so I'm not at all far from having this one completely finished!! Here's a big, messy photo of that last panel of my four newest scrappy blocks, just before I added them to the quilt.
Oh, the fun I had making this quilt! Let's look back, shall we!
I had lots of help! From little improv block designers...
To those eager and willing to show off their quilt holding skills.
I had the most fun making up my "Improv Quilter Block" and the response I received when I shared her was amazing!! I still can't believe it!
I'm excited today to add this project to the Festival of Scrappiness happening over at Stitched In Color! The scrappy creations to be seen are marvelous and very inspiring!
If I'm being honest, there are several things about my scrappy quilt that I would love to change, but today I'm letting those thoughts go. 1. Because the deadline to join in the festival ends today. :) 2. Because there will always be new scraps that can be made into something new and beautiful. It's true!!
There are also a few things I do really love about this quilt as it is.
This corner, there is just something about it that I really love!
This photo, of my daughter helping her best friend up the ladder, while mine is holding my quilt for me!
We put in a great effort to get those outdoor quilt photos yesterday, but the indoor ones just turned out better. I'm learning that taking the perfect quilt photo is an art form all on it's own. One that is not so natural for me. :)
Most of all, I love seeing all of the many little projects that went into making this quilt. It's like a scrap book in quilt form, that only I (and maybe you too, if you closely follow my daily makings. lol) can really see. It makes all that went into making this quilt seem enormous and that's pretty special.
Happy Sewing, friends!!
