Marjorie, a reader in Utah, sent me this picture of her latest quilt.  This is what she said about it:

 "I finished the 48 blocks today.  The original pattern was for 96 blocks.  I sewed the blocks on newspaper then removed it to put them on the design wall.  Some of the blocks were a little distorted on the edges but I was able to sew the same length borders on each side so I think it was not too uneven!!!  I did not get rid of many scraps.  After quilting I think I will do a scrappy binding.  I have started to do my bindings by machine unless the quilt is for judging at the fair."

Marjorie, I love your quilt.  What a great way to use up those scraps.  Since I saw your quilt, I've been going through my scrap pile and am now on a hunt for that black and white fabric.  I bet I can find some at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I hope mine turns out as nicely as yours.  Thanks so much for sharing with us!!
