Another Scrapbuster :)

I started this one in October/14 and finished it the first week of Jan /15. Do you recognize the pattern? ... It's  "High Five" from "Sunday Morning Quilts"  (by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison).  Since this is a baby quilt it is only 36 x 54, not nearly as big as Amanda Jean's in the book, but still a good way to use up some scraps.

I  machine stitched in the ditch between the blocks, hand quilted an x in the centre of each small square , and did a little extra hand quilting in the big squares. We spent a few days at Niagara Falls over Christmas and I totally enjoyed the veiw while doing some relaxing working on this one.

Two More Charity/Plus Quilts

**** Happy New Year !!!!

These quilts are being donated to Fresh Start Maternity Supports in St. Thomas Ontario.

This one I hand quilted.  Watching TV is so much more relaxing with  a quilt to work on.

The second one I quilted on the machine with loops and a flower in the centre of each plus

I've been working on scrappy log cabin blocks. So far I have 38 made, I need 64 to make it finish up at 80x80

So many options on how to arrange these blocks !!! So far I like this layout, but that will probably change by the time all 64 blocks are done :))
