I picked it up from Shenleigh before we left and quickly sewed the binding on,
and then I just had to had sew it down. (Story of the quilt here)
I'm so so happy with how it turned out.
It came together in just a few hours, it burst out of my scrap basket,
and it's full of joy and late summer sun,
with pops of red and orange.
It also has a lot of favourite scraps in it, and seeing them reminds me of Sharyn
and Simona, and Annie in her playcentre dress,
and much more besides.
It has scraps from the scraps swap and bits from Liz's yet to be completed quilt.
It has that amazing bright bring from Annie's scrap quilt and a piece of my favourite sheet
that has backed two quilts.
When we were back in Central Otago last weekend, there were 1000s of red rose hips
on the wild roses that completely cover the hillsides.
It made me glad I put some red bits in.
I love a stripy binding and this one is perfect I think.
We used it all weekend as a picnic rug and on our bed and snuggled on the sofa,
it's had a wash already and now it is covering Chrissy who is sick in bed with a bad cold.
It's the newest cheer-me-up quilt to the family, and I love it!
Scrap quilts are my absolute favourite!!
I still have a washing basket stuffed with scraps,
I'm planning on making giant hexes with vintage sheets along with Clare,
and I won the Ups and Downs pattern from Sarah Fielke on Twitter the other day,
plus I really want to make a log cabin.
Yes I have plans for those scraps!!!
