Scrappy Quilt As You Go Quilt

I started this scrappy quilt March 18, 2013. I wanted to reduce my scrap bag that has been piling up over the years. I didn't realize I had so much....LOL. As I finished the blocks, my scrap bag doesn't look like I put a dent in it. I guess I will be planning another scrappy project in the near future.

This quilt has been a challenge for me. I thought it would be a quick quilt. Especially, since I would be quilting it as I go along. NOT..... So many obstacles has happen to me since I started this quilt. I took sick again which lasted until the end of June. Then I need a vacation, from being sick.

 So, I took a month vacation. I went to my niece's graduation in NJ and camping in VA` with my sister, her two daughters, and her four grandchildren. We had such a grand time. My nephews actually asked to return next year.  On the 4th of July, my east coast family got together at my niece's home. It was a mini family reunion. We had such a grand time and didn't want it to end. But as the old saying stated "All good things must come to an end." Well, my time has ended. So, I headed back home and back to quilting.

Here is what I have done to far.

The quilt has thirty 12" blocks. I hope to finish it soon.

Happy Sewing
