gone to a good home



                               My daughter has a habit of finding homes for my finished quilts!
- the minute I put the last little stitches into the binding 
- off out the door it goes!

Blue & Brown Rosy Quilt





This is one of my 'go-to' quilt patterns for using up scraps.The layout of alternating 9 patch and large squares is one of Kaffe's earlier quilts, excellent for a particular colour story or maybe conveying a certain mood. I started it some time ago, just had the binding to add which I was doing today... and the rest, as they say, is history! I'm glad it's gone to a good home! 

Linking in to tgiff  here at anja quilts
and 'oh scrap' here at quilting is more fun than housework
pop on over to see lots of quilty inspiration!

{p.s. I've just received a lovely email from the lady who received this quilt, and she loves it!
Hey, isn't that why we do all this cutting up of fabric and sewing it all back together again?}

    1. Thank you Jodi! Yes, I’m a fan of Kaffe fabrics... attention seekers aren’t they? And I love trying to mix them into my other fabrics, doesn’t always work though! Cheers, Linda

  11. Yes, yes -- I can see how that would make a dent in your scraps. Hmmm ... You've got me thinking now about my own scrap bin!

    1. Yes, it’s a great pattern! Not only for using up scrap fabrics, but also showcases those larger pieces you don’t want to cut into! Thanx for stopping by, Linda

  16. Nine patches are so much fun. I think I'll do another one soon as I get the binding put on the last one I've done.

    1. Yes I too just love the 9 patch, perfect for scrap quilts & easy for beginners too.
      And very versatile depending on the fabric used... modern or traditional, it always works! Thanx for stopping by, Linda
