With all the clients quilts safely back with their creators in time for binding before Christmas, it was time to get to some of my projects, after all, I had been putting off my own projects for a year….. I have a huge amount of scraps, especially 2 1/2″ squares which just happened to turn themselves into something useful. Every fabric square in this project has a memory attached, each is a left over “scrap” piece of another quilt, there are parts dating back to both Bill and my mothers quilts, my sisters, and a whole lot of other family quilts. I just have to look at each piece to spark a memory of what quilt that went into and for whom, in fact almost 15 years worth of quilting history. That is why I just love scrappy quilts so much, nostalgia in every piece :-). I did trapunto free-hand feather designs around the plum border, and used King Tut variegated thread.
