Scrappy Quilts

I quilted the first two scrappy quilts for Julie. Scrappy quilts are so fun, because you get to see pieces from all of your old quilts brought together in one brand new one.
Red backing.
This is Julie's other scrappy quilt.
This border ties in the colors.
Flower backing.

Remember my last finished string quilt?
I decided to switch out that old blue quilt behind there for something new.
Thank you Zlaty for the wonderful birthday surprise. I can't wait to use the pretty bunny/flower panel and matching fabric to make a cute wall hanging.
I joined the liberated Amish group a while ago. This is my first liberated Amish quilt. I used the scraps from the waverunner quilt to make a Roman Stripe quilt.
Here are all of my blocks for it. I just have to make a border but I've gotten real lazy lately.
From going to modern looking to tradition, my taste in quilts is crazy!
Here's my handsome little baby boy, Max, right in front of the finished top. He was only outside for three seconds, but he was already panting!
Until next time,
~Millie~ :-)

A lot of pretty quilts Millie! I like the string quilt behind your quilting machine, looks great with the paint color!
I am glad you enjoy your little present, looking forward to see how you will use the panel! I like your last top, too!

Have a great weekend!

I don't do totally scrappy very well so it's really nice to see the beautiful quilts that you get to work on. Your customers are very talented and your quilting is beautiful.

Those Julie quilts are great. I love the way the scrappy takes on the quilting design. ...and I love your quilt at the bottom - not just saying that because I get to see Max. Yippie!

Love Max and the quilt behind him! Looks like a nice Cottage Quilt..

The NEW background for your wall looks STUNNING!

God bless ...

Oh, Millie, I love them all. And you are so right about the scrappy ones - they bring back such memories. And why shouldn't we like all kinds of quilts? We just have eclectic taste, don't we!

You always show so much in each post! All the quilts are wonderful. I love the Roman Stripes, its been a while since I've made one but I'm thinking about using some of my homespun leftovers for one.

Love the scrappy quilts and the quilting! I'm not much of a liberated quilter, but I REALLY like your roman stripes one. I'll bet it was fun to make.
