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,
