Maybe the Last One



I am nearly done with this quilt.
I had to do a little tweaking, but
I am near the finish line on it!



Which means that this is the last quilt
that needs to be quilted for the quilt show!
It was one of those "bonus quilts". I made it all from
scraps.
 I used all my leftover fabrics from my FQS Designer Mystery quilt.
Woo hoo! I had hardly any of the taupe fabric from the Strawberry Fields
group left... so I was super excited last week when my LQS got
Avalon delivered and I saw some taupe in the line!!!
I instantly purchased some and replaced my inner border with the
new Avalon fabric and then added another print from Avalon
to the final border.
I am a very happy camper!


I have one quilt at the LAQ right now... and when I get that one
back this week, I will hand over my Dancing Dollies and breath
a sigh of relief.
But in my mind I keep thinking...
I can squeeze one more in before May 1st.
So, maybe this isn't the last one!

Sinta, your quilt is gorgeous! The colors are so fresh...how wonderful that you were able to make this quilt almost .totally with fabric 'left overs'! Looking forward to seeing the next one!

What a great way to use up all the scraps! That quilt makes me smile. I'm betting you can squeeze one more in.

I love, love, love this quilt. Truth be told, it was this quilt kit - offered by Fig Tree herself - that got me inspired to get back into quilting after 15 years. And I haven't stopped since! I haven't made my quilt yet either, but that's another story. Perhaps I'll keep my 'kit' intact and do what you did with all scraps - they look great!!

Sometimes the leftover quilts are very stunning. I always make a leftover quilt but usually smaller. I love what you have done. Hugs
