Scrappy and Bright

Sister Linda is librarian for Taupo Quiltmakers.

She recently bought a new batch of books for their library and those people who borrowed the new books were asked to make something from the book and to review at the next meeting.

The concepts of the quilts in this book appealed to me and so I chose the Critters and Crawlers quilt to make.

A basic square within a square block, I decided to use a variety of conversation fabrics to make an 'I Spy' quilt with blue and yellow as the background fabrics.

This is a close up of the results - can you see the stars emerging from the placement of the blue and yellow background fabrics?

Just big enough to cover a single bed, we have a great nephew in mind to give it to.

But wait, he has two younger brothers.

Some more scrappy quilts will be needed to keep them warm and cosy too.

They are already underway so more quilts are yet to be revealed.
