I know quilters hate when someone calls a quilt a blanket, but this name is just too good to pass up. This quilt is made up of all scraps of fabric from the fabric company Blank fabrics. Except for the blue and the fabric on the back. Those all came from my stash or my mom's stash. (She didn't have much but she had enough for this border.) On June 29, 2014 I posted about cutting some scraps using Anita Grossman Solomon's no waste way to make a square in a square block. See this post. I used this as my leader and enders (a la Bonnie Hunter). So it took a while to finish the inside of this quilt. I also wanted to keep it scrappy and had some more scraps to use up so I took my Nickel Border book (by Pat Speth) and decided on this border using 5" squares. So truly a very scrappy quilt that took a while to make.
I spent most of my day yesterday traveling to and from my granddaughter's first birthday. It was cute and so was she. She was so good - never cried even when all these people were looking at her and oohing and aahing over her. My grandson just saw all these people to play with and chase him. He's such a ham. Here are a few pictures from yesterday.
