There's no doubt about it, scrap quilts will always be my favourite kind of patchwork. There's always a challenge to bring all those disparate scraps together into a pleasing whole.

This is not a good photo of the quilt unfortunately but it's a great one of that queen of cats, Persephone. Persephone needed her own personal quilt of course.

My near neighbours just had a tiny baby boy. What a cutie he is. Dad is Turkish and Mum is Indonesian. I thought I'd have a go at my first quilt since my shoulder replacement. Something simple as I knew I would be slow. I chose some bright red fabric with little robots on it and a navy and white stripe for contrast. The binding was done in my most favoured scrappy pattern (see Picture 2), a great way of using up smaller pieces of leftover fabric which also looks good. I finished with my usual simply hand-embroidered label.

Laurie's Quilt was done in a series of coordinating batik prints which I bought in the U.S. The main block had 17 pieces in it which extended the time for making it. The supporting block was an hourglass block, one of my fav blocks.
