Scrap Therapy

Our Scrap Therapy group had our June meeting and we showed the results of our 2-color quilt challenge. We had 3 entries, Pam's brown and cream half log cabins, my blue and white shared 9-patch, and Anne's cream and ecru quilt. Anne was the winner! You'll notice, none of them are quilted yet. We're an easy group with very loose rules!

That is one huge quilt, Anne!

This quilt above is Judi's Mystery quilt. The border and the center square of the block is made with a gorgeous rose and green batik. I wish the colors showed up better!

And this wonderful quilt is Judi's Piece o' Cake project. It's called "Flowers in the Garden," or something like that! I took a few closeup pictures so you could appreciate the detail she is putting into this project. She used some wooden beads in the center of the ruched flowers, and appliqued a few bugs and bees on it also. She is also buying some appropriate buttons...she has a snail to add to it! Judi did this as a quilt as you go project. Great job, Judi. The detail and the hand quilting is wonderful!

The photo below, with the butterfly, displays the red background more accurately. Don't you love the polka dot binding--what a snazzy finishing touch, Judi!

Anne has been working on several different projects at the same time. She too is determined to finish up some of her scraps. Here's her red and white scrappy project. Is that the "Lady in the Lake" block?

Anne's working on 2 different blue scrappy quilt projects. I like them both!
Can't wait to see them getting larger!

We talked about ideas for our next 6 months. We enjoyed our mystery quilt and would like to do another one. We also want to do a row-by-row quilt, completing one row each month. We haven't picked out which one we want to do. That's where it will get interesting! We do all agree that we don't want one that depicts only one holiday. But other than that, we are beginning the search. Wish us luck as we try to get 6 to 8 women to agree on the same thing!

Till next time keep stitchin!
