This first picture is a quilt that I made for my daughter in 2012. She helped me start this blog, so she gets the first post.
This is called Scrappy Nines. The pattern came from the book Spotlight on Neutrals by Pat Wys. I used black and white fabrics collected from several quilt stores, and one of my favorite fabrics, ticking stripe, for the binding. It has approximately 2,865 pieces and measures 90x90 inches. It was machine quilted by Tammy and Allison at threesistersfabric.com.
A year later on a summer afternoon I was looking at the scraps and was inspired to use them. I chose a Schnibbles pattern Dimestore by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. I changed the size to 36 inches square and it has approximately 516 pieces. It was machine quilted by Vickie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
