I always thought I would eventually gravitate to making quilts. I love playing with color and pattern. At the library, I found a quilt magazine with an unusual quilt on the front. I scanned over the article and decided it was worth the 10 cents the magazine cost. I have many, MANY fabric scraps and wanted to use them in a meaningful way. So I got busy cutting out blocks. I worked on cutting them out over a weekend and started sewing them together. I had all the blocks completed and all sewn together by the end of the next week. Then I started quilting. I hand quilted the center and machine stitched around the edge. It was my first attempt at machine quilting and MAN it was fun! This quilt measures 86"x86".
