Scrappy Quilt Progress

Just got back from a beautiful week at the beach (Avon on OBX, NC). We had plenty of sunshine, no humidity and just lots of family fun. Prior to leaving, I prepped a couple of projects include lots of scraps for a scrappy quilt - see that post.

This quilt was a perfect beach project - there was no need to trim blocks - just sew and press. In fact, I actually just finger pressed most of the time.

I still plan on adding a border using the little white fabric I have left. This whole quilt came from scraps and stash and the final size was determined by the amount of background fabric!

The quilt was originally intended for a friend who fell suddenly and seriously ill. Sadly, we lost this wonderful person last week. I decided to finish the quilt and will be donating it to our guild charity. 

Have a wonderful day! Patty
