SOQS 2014 :: Scraps (aka Odds and Ends)

Sisters Show 2014 Scraps (10)Okay, I hope this title doesn't upset anyone.  I don't mean to say that the quilts in this post are any less worthy than the previous posts. In fact, if you know me at all through this blog, you should know how much I love scraps and scrap quilts!  These quilts either are true scrap quilts, or just didn't fit into the other categories.

This particular quilt was a real favorite and I almost missed it.  I probably actually gasped when I saw it.  The words are fantastic and all these various blocks are truly a treasure.  Sadly, I didn't get the name of the maker, but did note that they referenced Tonya Ricucci!Sisters Show 2014 Scraps (8)See the black kitty, Tonya?

Sisters Show 2014 Scraps (1)These quilts were seen in lots of different places around town. The ladies above are really great.  Remember to click to enlarge!  Below are some of the quilts in the Sisters Coffee Co.  Janet Storton is a local quilter who has a project working with ladies in Uganda to teach them to quilt. They always bring some wonderful quilts for sale here.  Sisters Show 2014 Scraps (2)Below is Janet's quilt that she worked on in my Liberated Basics class last fall.  I love it!

I also have a particular fondness for red, white and blue quilts.  This is a great flag quilt and it inspires me to try one someday.
