Kathy’s Scrap Basket

My friend Kathy made this quilt for her baby girl, using my Grammy’s Scrap Basket pattern, and Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda. It turned out totally darling, don’t you think?

I got to machine quilt it, and it was pretty darn fun. Plus, we did a little cheating on the raw edge applique–Kathy just glue sticked the letters on, and I sewed them on while I was quilting! So quick and easy! I did little bitty loop-de-loops in the white borders.

Some fun swirly flowers in the outer borders.

I traced each of the strips with wavy lines to emphasize the woven pattern.

Thanks for letting me quilt your sweet quilt, Kathy!



PS Did you enter the giveaway? We’re still not at 100 entries yet, so I’m starting to think I might get to keep that Marmalade! (In other words, go tell your friends to enter. If they don’t like fabric, I’m sure they could give it to you. :)
