Scrapalicious !!







Here is my latest finished quilt, I have named it Scrapalicious!!
I sat hand stitching the binding to the back of my quilt by the glow of the television whilst watching Desperate Housewives then Brothers & sisters until finally the last stitch was in place.....ahhhh all done, I love that feeling.

I started this scrappy quilt before Christmas and have finally moved it from the unfinished projects pile to the end of my bed. I was on a bit of a mission to get my stash pile down but as I mentioned in my previous post, I always seem to be missing just that bit of something, I know all you crafters out there know exactly what I'm talking about. I refrained quite well though on this one I think. Its made completely from my scrap pile with the exception of the gorgeous hot pink fabric I used for the binding which I had sitting there waiting for ever ( along with all the rest ) for the right project to come along . As for my scrap pile, well, its still enormous. I think it always will be.

I have two quilts under construction at the moment, one in its final stages with the top being completed and I have just started an heirloom quilt for my mum, I really should learn to finish one thing before starting another but when the mood strikes you just have to take action ( and I might forget my ideas .lol.) ....
Unil next time,

Hey Cherrie,
that scrapalicious quilt looks fantastic. Well done on using your scraps and not buying anything to add to it. Oh, you must be a strong gal!
Oh yeah, the pink binding is just right.
Hugs, Anna

I don't think there is anything better than finishing a project. Wait, yes there is, a scrappy quilt project. I love using up every single piece of fabric. This turned out beautifully!! What will you do with it? Also, anyone who hand binds (as I do as well) has my " atta girls" coming to them.

ATTA GIRL! Nice job

Your quilt is beautiful, I have so many chenille scraps it's unbelievable and I may just have to try to find the time to make something with all of them. I love the colors and the pink binding to your beautiful creation is just perfect!

Have a great day!
