Scraps From the Heart

Ahhhhh! How sweet it is! My first finish for May! A couple of weeks ago, Carol of Giraffe Dreams, showed a quilt that had been made by alternating scrap blocks and plain blocks. I thought it would be a great way to use up scraps. And it was! Thanks Carol! This is a charity quilt going to our Guild's 'Quilts from the Heart". It will be donated to a local women's shelter. It measures 35" X 45". I loved making the scrap blocks. It was a kind of mindless activity that I like to do sometimes. Even the binding is pieced out of strips of left-over fabrics from other quilts.
