Sticks Infinity ... and Finished ( or not) Friday


Way back in 2015  Cynthia - at Quilting is More fun than Housework started a scrappy challenge and I jumped on it!  I created Sticks.... and I loved Sticks... and I made More Sticks.... and then....

Cynthia made this cool quilt that she called A festive Picnic Quilt.... and although she used stings - I saw Sticks!!! and so I copied ( ish) her!!! ( with her permission - I promise!!) - but I was nice and I named mine 

Inspired by Cynthia

And then.....  I was organizing a pile that I had stacked someplace .. and there was a small top ish type thing - and I said - OH! I can make another sticks..... and so I did...

and here it is:

Ta da!!!



The blue was in my Stack... so I added some cream stick blocks.....


and then I bordered it with An eagle Print!!! I love Eagles!! and it just seemed to look so good!

Goes to show that if you stick to it you end up with a fabulous quilt!

What a great quilt. One could certainly get distracted in the mindless piecing of it. Thanks for the inspiration and for the linky opportunity.

Beautiful quilt!

Gosh, that is so cool! All your scrap quilts make me wish I could quilt full time! Of course, working from home for now is making me wish I never have to commute again... Ha ha!

Thanks for this post - inspiration for a fabric pull for which the design idea has been AWOL.

I need to make another of these types of quilt. I live your version. Maybe I will copy you :)
