My sisters been busy.

I still didn't manage to do anything much. I have the same pink top, on it's pink fleecy halfway tacked. I know, I know, I've had plenty of time now to get it done, but that nasty habit work keeps getting in the way!

But my sister has been busy again. About a year ago she started making this yellow creation, for our youngest sister Neenee. Sorry it's not a great photo, I had real problems getting anything that wasn't completely washed away. Neenee choose the fabrics used here. The 5 inch charms were hand quilted to produce this pillow case.

While Moy and I are both saying, ''Not on my bed'' Neenee loves it.

Do you remember the pin wheel blocks Moy and I made using what she called her smeggie charms?

She did eventually take them home with her, where she continued to work alone. She got tired of pinwheels so varied the triangle theme a little and came up with this beauty.

Ironically, now she says she likes it! I've seen many bloggers saying they have used their most hated fabrics or colours in scrappy quilts, then later admitting to liking the result. I have to say I like it too. Moy is now in a quandry, she has seen me working with fleece and would like to try that, but is pulled toward the more traditional wadding and backing, and doesn't have a clue what to use for the binding! I'll keep you posted.

Right, I'm outta here, gone! I should have time to finish the tacking stitches in the pink creation before I have to be at work.
See ya! Bye!

Lovely Loulee...I like them both! What about a solid color for the border? I could see maybe a black, or a dark blue..whatcha think? I think it would really 'pop'.

I love the scrap quilt - it's good whent here are lots of differnet colours, and then everything works really well, even the fabrics you despaired of finding a use for!

I love scrappy pinwheels, great way to use up all the fabrics that I do not like...one day I hope to make a Pinwheel quilt if I ever get the DJ quilt finished!
