Aren't these great light, natural fabrics? A week or two ago I mentioned that I was running out of light scraps for a scrap quilt I'm working on. Susan of Desert Sky Quilting offered to send me some of her scraps. I hesitated to accept: I'm generally a self-reliant person but I'm committed to this quilt being a scrap quilt made of real, honest-to-goodness scraps, don't have enough of my own, and finally said yes. The reinforcements arrived in the mail this afternoon. Perfect!
Thank you for your generosity, Susan. You're wonderful!
With the few light scraps I have left and the ones Susan sent I think I'll have enough to finish sewing the blocks I need. The fabric in the ones below look creamier than the fabrics above but there are lighter ones not shown in the photograph and the reinforcements will work in just fine. I'm grateful to have them.
In fact, some of the pieces Susan sent are large enough to make 4" blocks and I might just cut them to size. No need to waste fabric on seams, huh?
Thank you again, Susan. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and the fabric you sent. It will be perfect!
