DWM: finishes and starts (no fooling!)

Simply Scrappy is finished! I used variegated thread and just meandered. The binding is made from leftover binding strips (2.25").  It didn't even make it to UFO status! 
However, this was a UFO dating back to 2010. The photo shows it unquilted, but I have now finished, bound, and labeled it.  (I quilted loopy flowers in the 9-patches, continuous curves in the hourglasses, and parallel horizontal lines in the border.)  This will be donated to the Zion Township Senior Fair later this month.

And I've made another bookshelf quilt for a coworker who is retiring in April.  
I'm still making HSTs as leaders-and-enders. The block is called "Grandpa's Star." It's Bonnie Hunter's "Addicted to Scraps" block in the March/April issue of Quiltmaker. She used 1.5" HSTs for a 7" block. Mine are 2.5" for a 10" block.  I'll make blocks until I run out of the red sashing fabric.

Check out what other quiltmakers are working on at Judy's  Patchwork Times

  1. love all your projects-a top that doesn't even get to "UFO" stage is quite impressive.

  3. I love the setting for your Simply Scrappy! For just a moment I thought about using it for a Postage Stamp project I am working on, but quickly decided that I'd lose my mind trying to make 1.5 inch HST's! Great progress on all your projects, good for you!
