Extraordinary Scrap Quilts

Caption 1: Ursala is the queen of our scrap basket! We love all of her quilts and this one is no exception. She collects scraps from the basket, takes them home and sorts them into colors, and when the stacks get big enough, she turns them into spectacular scrappy quilts. Maybe we should all start looking at our scraps a little more carefully!

Another project from Ursala using just scraps from the scrap basket.

Patriotic Tabletopper

Madeline just finished this table topper from the pattern Pinwheel Parade by Silver Thimble Quilts. Very patriotic!

New Jo Morton fabric

Hmm, I know this fabric looks familiar but there is just something about it...
It is fabric designed by Jo Morton but is laminated!  Karen made a placemat using two of the fabric options.  It is very drapey.  Not stiff at all.
Think lunch boxes, raincoats, tablecloths, baby bibs, outside seat cushions.
Also, just in...
Toasty and Lumenarias.  Megabundles available. $42.95 and $34.50 respectively.
