Next large quilt..

Here is the next quilt I am gonna make..  It is from American Patchwork and Quilting Dec. 2009. I was digging through some old quilt books and thought this would be a great pattern for  my fabric that I don't want to cut up into some really small pieces. Of course my colors will be totally different as you will see below.

Birds will be center of blocks. Brown will go around bird blocks. White will go where gold is on pattern. Green will be first border and last of all red with candy canes will be last border.  
Keep checking back to see how this project is progressing.



scrap quilt book

I saw this scrap quilt book and it just kept calling my name.....This book seems to have great directions.
I am a scrap quilt lover and all the quilts in this book are ones that I would love to make.. either using scraps or pull some fabrics from our stash. Either or would be great would it not? That is the point to use up our stash so we can go shopping..
