A Scrap Quilt

It's been forever since I have posted.  And I am weeks behind on my blog reading.  Life happens!  But currently all is well and I have been sewing!

I've been thinking to myself that I need to get busy and make quilts to giveaway to people who need the comfort of a quilt.  I have plenty of scraps to make a few quilts so I just began working a little bit at a time, cutting here, piecing there.  I am at the design board stage with this quilt.  Here is what I have so far although I am not done with the arrangement.

I just had enough scraps to come up with this 55 by 65 throw.  It has a fall/winter feel to it.  I found some coordinating fabric online to use for the back, and it's been ordered.

As always, thanks for stopping by!  Happy Thanksgiving!!  :o)

The colors feel warm and cozy and I know someone will appreciate it very much. It's the perfect size. Handmade from the heart is the best.

I do like the random steps and stairs effect, and the two tone border top and bottom, perfect finish. Happiness wrapped up in a quilt, a comfort for another, lovely to give. Cheers from Jean.
