Lori’s Scraps

It kills me what this woman can do with scraps. Not to mention she cuts them into one inch scraps…and always makes the best quilts.IMG_8227


I have one more for her that is pinned on…but I finished these 2 this week. Lori’s friends drop off tiny scraps that they don’t want anymore and she turns them into these fabulous quilts…I wonder if they ever want their scraps back after she has worked with them?  IMG_8229

On this one I quilted all over swirly feather design until i got to the borders..then I quilted continuous curves…leaves, and two feathers going in opposite directions to add some interest. There is so much variety in this quilt…I think that is what truly makes a beautiful scrappy is all the variety of fabrics. IMG_8231

I happen to know Lori loves feathers…this type of quilt loves feathers too!  The back is AWESOME! IMG_8232

Lori usually chooses simple backs to show off the quilting..I think she loves them as much as I do. All that lovely texture.

We used two layers of batting on both quilts.

This next quilt was an exercise for Lori. She was gifted some William Morris charm packs. So she built this from those …I think she did an AWESOME job…..she was not so sure. So I took advantage of those blank quilt spaces…and quilted a flower om the center…and some charisma curls as a filler, continuous curves and leaves…William Morris has leaves in just about every design…so you can’t go wrong with those.  IMG_8233

It looks a bit crinkly because I had to wet it it get my marks off. IMG_8235 IMG_8236

Thanks Lori…hopefully I will be shipping them back in the next few days..I am still working on the other one. Always a pleasure!
