Scrappy Quilts

  To make, quilt or look at a scrappy quilt puts a smile on my face. This is Kim's Scrappity-do-dah quilt.
The finished size of the blocks are 4.5". 
 This is such a pretty scrappy quilt and I had so much fun quilting Kim's quilt for her.
 The backing is an old cotton sheet in navy blue.
 The next quilt  is Kim's Dots and Dashes quilt.
 Pretty dotty fabric as the border.
 Kim glued the circles on the fabric and I quilted over the them. I think after the quilt is washed it will look like frayed raw appliqued circles although the circles are quilted and not stitched down.
 And this is the pretty scrappy backing.
 The last quilt I wanted to share, I quilted for Betsie. She made the quilt for a teenager girl.
 Isn't the appliqued name on the front of the quilt so cute?
Any teenager girl will love these fun and bright colors.  
This is the back of the quilt, pink and yellow flannel.
Happy  Quilting!

Yipes, Millie, they are ALL so pretty. I don't think I could choose a favorite out of that bunch, and your quilting, as always, is just the perfect thing to bring out their beauty. Great job(s)!!!!

Love that first quilt - great scrappy idea and one which I've had bookmarked for quite a while.

Merry Christmas Millie - do you have family coming from SA to visit?
