Cutting Scraps

For the past several days I have been cutting up leftover scraps from making several quilts and from scraps that others have given me. I plan on using a lot of these scraps in some scrappy quilts.

I love the look of scrappy quilts. They remind me of quilts my step-grandmother made. I am very fortunate to have one of those quilts. She made her quilts out of the feed, sugar, and flour sacks of her day. Wish I would of had the quilting bug back when she was alive to ask her about her methods. I will post pictures of the quilt I have later and a small pillow cover she made of a donkey. I have seen the donkey pattern in a 1985 magazine. Hers was made a long time prior to that.
