These are some bigger pictures of my fall quilt.
I made it with all kinds of fall scraps and fabrics. I ordered some on ebay, used some scraps people had given me, used some scraps I had from the past and bought a few 5 inch strips from Walmart of fabrics with fall leaves, sunflowers, etc. I bought the fabric from Walmart for the backing. The backing has cows, sunflowers, tractors, chickens and all kinds of farm things like that on it.
This is the pattern I used: http://www.quiltville.com/stringx.shtml I didn't use a foundation fabric because I found I could just sew the strips together until the piece was big enough, press it flat, and then rotary cut off the edges to the correct size.
I also made the baby quilt on my side bar out of all kinds of "baby" scraps from the same pattern.
I love the Quiltville Web Site. Bonnie's scrap quilt patterns are the best I've ever seen. I love her leaders/enders instructions!!!! You can make two quilt tops at the same time this way!
Thanks, Debbie J.
