Free Quilt!

When someone offers you scraps.....
TAKE them!!!

This quilt was FREE
and...
it was easy!

A little bag of scraps.
A free afternoon.
For me.... the means.....
FREE entertainment!!!
;)


Here it is BEFORE the border.
Doesn't that bright border fabric make a difference??

There were even a couple of CUTE Prints!!!
Big trucks!
What every little boy dreams about!!!

This is the book that inspires me
EVERY time I open it.

String quilts could keep me busy FOR----EVER!!!
There are SO many possibilities!!!

I'm hoping to quilt this one up in the next week
and donate it to my local quilt guild!
They do a GREAT job of supporting LOCAL agencies...
providing quilts to needy organizations!

What are you donating this week??
There is a linky party here if you'd like to share!
There are so many needs....
Let's CHEER each other on!!!

  1. It's beautiful, Beth - and so smart of you to sew those scraps up instead of sorting them into the scrap bins!!

  9. I am an absolute scrap hound and this is why. You can make such great quilts with the fabric others were throwing away.
    It is a lovely quilt & the border is perfect.
    I am sure that the recipient will cherish your gift.
