The Scrappy Book quilt

it is FINALLY FINISHED!! well - It needs its binding, but that is made and my friend said she will put it on for me!! Whoop!!! Whoop!!

So.... if you have followed me for a while - and can remember dates ( which I can not) in 2011 I finished this Carolina Christmas Quilt ( I think that is the name) it was a mystery from Bonnie Hunter:

BUT! I saved every little half square cut off. and I started making these blocks"

 

And then I put it into a top - and FINALLY I got to get to quilting it!!


Here it is!!!

In each of the pieced blocks I quilted this Circley thing. I  thought it quilted it, yet gave it some poof.

This is the back - I pieced 2 different Very Pink fabrics together.


It is called the Scrappy Book quilt as my son thought the side looked like a book binding - and I agreed. So - bam - we named it!

This is awesome!! I really dig the addition of a lot of negative space, it makes the HSTs stand out more. AND your quilting is spectacular as usual!! :)

I love it! The quilting is great how you have circles and then some squares here and there.

I LIKE it! The Scrappy Book, that is. And I'm not a pink person. Good job.

What a great bonus! A whole 'nother quilt. Love the pink with black and white script fabric.

It is just fabulous and it gives me hope that some day I will also use up all those leftover triangle bits that I have.

The quilting adds such nice texture. Beautifully done.
