Scrappy Basket

Our County Fair was good.  I won a "Reserve" ribbon on my wall hanging and a couple of blue ribbons and one red ribbon on my other quilts.  One of the exciting things to see was the generosity of the quilters in our County sharing their creations in the "Help Make A Child Smile" contest.  That has inspired me to make more quilts to share.  I delved into my scrap basket today and came up with some squares that I had cut out with the die cutter and packaged for a rainy day.  Boy did it rain today.  That meant yard work was out of the question and quilting was in.  I hope you are enjoying your quilt journey and sharing your love along the way.

Happy Quilting

It's all in the giving,

"Lavender Path"

These are the final 3 quilts that I have made for the Make A Child Smile special contest at our county fair this next week.  All fabrics were prewashed.  The designs are my own.  Keep your patterns simple if you have a busy life and a deadline to meet.  They will give the same comfort as one that has taken a long time to make.  Get busy and be creative.  Enjoy the journey!
