I have finished some projects this past week and want to show them to you.  Above is a quilt that I made from blocks donated by the women in a Bee Hive I participated in last year. As I recall they were asked to use their brightly colored scraps to make these blocks.   I hate the new Picasa photo editor because you can't see the wonderful vibrant colors in this quilt.  If anyone has a better photo editor they can tell me about, please do.  Anyway, I love this quilt and thank the women so much for their blocks.
This is the quilt that Adrienne and I worked on during Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  She put our blocks together, added the borders and made the backing.  I sandwiched and quilted it and added the binding.  I love how this low volume quilt turned out.
This is a close up of the quilt.
I have worked on this quilt at Happy Scrappers for over a year.  I used scraps to make the blocks.  Again, I was unable to get the vibrant colors to show, but it is really a pretty quilt.  It will go to charity.  
This is a close up.  Ugh, the colors all look washed out!  So sorry.

Oh scrappy quilts are my absolute favorites and all of these are fabulous, including your quilting Caroll! For my pictures I only use Microsoft Office 2010 which has its limitations (or is it just me LOL). Thanks so much for all of your efforts and I hope someone provides you with a clue to a fotoshopper you are happier using! Love and hugs, Bobbi

These are really pretty quilts even with a photo editor you don't like. Knowing you and your love of color we automatically adjust our eyes to a higher brightness level!

I am really getting inspired lately to start sewing my scraps together for pillows and quilts. Your scrappy quilts look so marvelous! I used to use GIMP when I was able to operate my laptop. Laptops have become to confusing with requiring a freakin' app for every little thing nowadays! I couldn't figure out the more techy stuff on GIMP, but the basics are easy enough to do.

Oh Caroll these are just awesome!!!! I honestly can't pick a favorite! Too too pretty....

PicMonkey is the best photo editing program I've ever used, but I couldn't afford it for another year. They do have some free features, though. Now I use PhotoScape, completely free, it's been around a long time and it does enough for me. It's a free download.
