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 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I have recently become addicted to dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I also throw in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake, in Northern Manitoba, as life isn't all about quilting.
