Scrap Happy in February

 First of all, let me thank my friends who have left such encouraging comments on my last post. You are kind and wise, each one of you. 

I didn't think I would have anything for Scrap Happy Day this time around but I do! It's the scrappy mystery quilt I made last year. This was the flimsy stage:

It has since been quilted but fell to the bottom of the pile for binding. Eventually I sewed some leftover strips of multi-color binding together. Three different prints made nearly the perfect length I needed! 

The backing fabric was given to me to use specifically for donation quilts. As usual, James did an excellent job of the quilting. 😊

All that remains is to launder this little gem. 

In it's current state it measures about 46" wide and 60" high. Given all the juvenile prints in it I will probably try to get it into the hands of a child in the foster care system. 💙

Kate (in Australia) and Gun (in Sweden) are the hostesses for this link party. Here are links to some other folks who regularly participate in Scrap Happy Day. They may not have a scrappy post this time around but their blogs are still worth a visit! 


  1. wonderful, bright and cheerful quilt for a child who may need some love. Well done.

  2. I still think you should hire James out - he never made it to France, maybe he'd prefer West Dorset

  3. Oh, this is lovely! I love the contrast between the disciplined geometry and the random, cheerful fabrics and the fabulous binding. And James has chosen really perfect quilting motifs.


Due to my health issues I am frequently unable to respond to your comments but please know that I appreciate your thoughtful responses. I cannot respond to 'no-reply' bloggers either, much to my frustration.
