I never thought I could handle making a scrappy quilt as I am so fussy about matching my fabrics. I mean REALLY fussy. But I have been looking for a scrappy pattern for awhile to start using up my batik scraps. So when I saw this quilt on Quilters Going Banana's blog I just fell in love with it and had to make it. Katherine posted a great tutorial on Stash Manicure so that got me modivated to start working on it right away. This is 100% made from my scraps and there is something so satisfying from making a quilt with what you have! I mean it's almost like a free quilt....right! I even have a home for it as I redecorated my sons room this summer and they desperately need new quilts. I'll have to get busy making a second one because you know how I like things to match!
I also made these this week for my girlfriends so they can look cool on our cruise too!
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
