At the Tuesday Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop Gerry shared a couple more quilts that were made entirely from her scrap bag. I love the black centers on the quilt above. Really ties everything together. Isn't it amazing what she does with scraps!

Gerry said that she belongs to a group that was involved in a large quilting project. She said that the above quilt was made entirely of leftovers from that project. I love how she has used this fabric. You can’t see it in the picture but she added a wide border and appliqu├ęd squares in the corners. Very pretty.

I’ve been so inspired by Gerry that I used strips from my scrap bag today to make these squares. I’m going to sash them in the blue. It will be donated to the Quilt for Wheels group at the Attic Window. That will be a start on my New Year's Resolutions!

Angie’s Bits & Pieces has a Simple-Thymes BOM starting this week. Check it out. It’s really cute.

Until next time,

Gerry is so very creative and ingenious with her scrap quilts. They are gorgeous and perfect. Good Work, Gerry.
Your blocks look really good especially on the blue fabric. One question -- when you pressed all of your scraps, did you use any spray sizing or starch or any of the new product called Perfect Press?? Just Curious since I am now pressing my scraps for 3 different patriotic scrap quilts that I want to make.
Have a great day and stay warm and safe in this bitter cold in the Midwest.
