Scrappy Quilts

 Our weather has been so wonderful. I've been enjoying working in the garden and walking Max. Lately I've been quilting a lot of scrappy quilts. Here are four I would like to show you.
This first scrappy quilt was pieced by Julie. It is her nine patch exchange quilt. This whole quilt is made of one and a half  inch strips.
 This is also a scrappy quilt by July. This whole quilt is made from one and a half inch, all plaid, flannel strips. 
 There's another pretty nine patch in the sashings.
 Muslin backing.
 This next one was pieced by Sandy. It is a block of the month sampler quilt. I like the vibrant colors that make me excited for Summer.


 This last one was made from Cathy. I took it late at night so I apologize for the darkness of the photo. It's a cute cat version of Sunbonnet Sue and Sam quilt.
 Adorable close up of the cats.
 Happy Quilting,

All great quilts. Like Linda I love the first one-what a great way to show nine patch blocks.
Superb quilting as always Millie.

What a clever use for 9 patch exchange blocks! The sashing on the sampler quilt is stiking, too. Good show!

Love the quilts especially the flannel one. People often get stuck with what to do with flannel but that quilt is a great pattern.

Di said...

Great quilts Millie. I love the flannel one the best. I often find quilters get a bit stuck with what design to use for flannel but that one is great!
