Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting Scrappy Quilt Challenge

You may remember that I wrote about Marcia's Scrappy Quilt Challenge on January 6th.  I showed you the scraps I planned to use.

Now it is time to see the finished top.
I love it.  My daughter said, "That's a great quilt!  Some little child is going to love that."  Two minutes later she burst my bubble saying, "Do you realize that none of those blocks are the same?"  I tried explaining about using the pattern from the Scrappy Challenge, but she wasn't buying it.  She decided that she prefers quilts that use the same blocks throughout.  Boring!
I didn't cut into any yardage for this quilt.  The strips for the borders were cut for another quilt and misplaced.  There they were waiting in the fabric closet.  At 33 x 41, this will be a good donation quilt for a small child.  Thanks Marcia.  Whether I win the long arm quilting or not, this was a fun quilt to make.  I've already cut some focus fabric to make another one.

Somebody's Got to Win This. Why Not Me or You?

I was visiting a blog this morning and noticed something interesting on the side bar.  The Quilter's Club of America Fabric for Life Sweepstakes is offering 50 prizes.  I think one of them should go to me.  If not me, than one of my web friends.  Let's face it.  It's a clever way to add thousands of quilters to their mailing list, but suppose one of us wonderful quilters wins.  I was sucked into the Greedy Zone and entered.  If I win, I promise I'll share.
