Quilting detail - gorgeous dresden plate

Our guild made this gorgeous queen-size quilt which we donated to the our local "friends of the library" to raffle.......our library has had some major budget cuts, and since we get to meet there free of charge, we wanted to do something to help. I have tickets, if you would like a chance to win it, e-mail me.

If you win it - I will ship it to you, if you aren't close enough for me to bring it to you. $1 for one chance $5 for 6 chances.

Until next time,
Piece!

May I show you my backside?



Of my quilt in progress silly!  Remember this quilt top?

I used the leftover half square triangles from the blue/white X squares that look like this:

  

Seemingly insignificant right? How many times have you thrown away these scraps?

We'll  instead of throwing them away - I made these!






These will be on the back side of this quilt. Each blue/white half square triangle is 1 inch...the total pieced star part of this block is 4 3/4". It was fun to see these come together....what will you do with your scraps?

A finish

I finished this yesterday.....

what do you do with ugly fabric?

So this one started out as an ugly fabric design.  Notice the very dated brown calico was my ugly fabric.  It  was transformed by the addition of just a few colors.  The deep red is what makes the most difference in my opinion. It pulls all of the others together.


What do you think?  Have any ugly fabric in your stash? Send it to me and I will see what I can do with it.
