What a gift!!
Hubby and I were at our neighbors for dinner tonight. She is a fellow quilter - mostly hand applique. After the meal she brought out a back of scraps that a friend had given her - a whole grocery sack full of Marimekko scraps. As I was oooing and ahhhing, she took half of them and put them into a sack for me. They are bold, often huge prints in mostly primary colors, in heavy cotton fabric. I immediately thought how much fun it would be to make a scrap quilt from the MaryQuilts website that Dawn showed us. I think I might make the Amish Stripes and Strings or the Half Log Cabin pattern. The fabric is so heavy that I'll use paper foundation, not muslin though.
If anyone else has a pattern that they think would work with my treasure, I'd love to hear about it. Lois
