This is the top with the HSTs made with Thangles. Glad they are out of my stash! LOL Lots of scraps out of the stash, too. Each block has a different cat fabric in the center. The block is called Contrary Wife.

I think it will go to my guild for our challenge this year, but I may decide to keep it. :) Tomorrow I'll load it on the frame and at least start quilting it. It's 58 X 75.

Great use of scraps. But I will bet you still have more. They breed when we aren't looking. Also,like the piano key border.

Love being able to use leftovers and still coming up with a nice looking quilt!

Ok, you math geniuses. How much fabric did she use? More than four yards for the front? Lots of pieces and don't forget to include the seam allowance. :-)

LOL Sharon, yardage doesn't count! I only used small pieces in my scrap bins! Even the backing fabric doesn't count - it used to be one of my dining room drapes!

Of course it counts, Donna!!! You got it out of your stash and that counts!!! LOL

My scraps are separated into colorways, but I think it's time to put them altogether again and see how much I still have.

Very nice! Good job working with all those scraps! I like that you used a central theme - kitties - in the center of each block. It helps to ground the quilt letting the eye focus.

What does your Guild do with the Challenge Quilts?

The border is perfect for it!!
