I think there is a scrap from nearly every quilt I've done in the last two years in this quilt. It started out as a swap and then I decided swapping wasn't worth the postage $, so I just started using up scraps of my own--I certainly had plenty. I love the look of a scrappy quilt and this one is one I'll certainly do again. Can do the squares as leader--enders Bonnie Hunter style! The backing is a heavy flannel and it presented a string of adjustments, but I finally figured out something that worked and I found I really like using: Signature Spun Polyester Size 30 Thread, with a size 16 needle. The one I used for this one is "Sandy Hues" in a light tan verigated tone. It's a bit pricey and I'm certainly going to build my stash of this when JoAnn's has a sale as I love the way it looks when quilted on my home sewing machine. It gives a better defintion to the quilting. 'Nuff said. Anyhow this is a bit larger than any I've done on my machine--54" x 72". A good size donation quilt for the Family Connections Center. This one is UFO # 20 and the Laurel Burch is UFO #21...Whaaaa HOOOO!
