When life throws you scraps, make a quilt.
[Author Unknown]


I’ve spent the summer finishing projects (some of which I started over thirty years ago). Here is Toby holding down my latest quilt top. I call it “Lincoln Star.” If anyone knows its real name, do let me know. Since I’m hand quilting two quilt tops already, this one is going to a lady who does lovely machine quilting so it can be finished before I’m 110.

See the braided rug in Toby’s photo? My grandma made that with scraps of fabric. She could make pretty and useful things out of next to nothing.
