Design Wall Monday 8/16

These blocks WERE on my design wall last week, but I was unable to take a picture to show you.  So in the past week, I put Judy Laquidara's Scraps Ahoy blocks together and came up with another preemie top.  Now the purpose of the pattern was to use up scraps.  Well I had so many scraps left over from cutting the sizes suggested, I decided to use them for the back of this quilt, and for a time I entertained finding some plain back material and make two quilts, but then I just broke down and used the material I made with the scraps as the back.  It's the second picture.  Thanks for the pattern, Judy.  You can see it at her blog Patchwork Times which a button for it is located on the sidebar.

AHH I love a scrappy back! I just hate making them...as soon as its loaded on the frame, I'm ok with it, but piecing it is like pulling teeth for me! Nice job! I was tempted to try that pattern, but I just have too much going on in my sewing room...:::SIGH::::

Thanks, Beth - for me the piecing is the part I like best. I think sandwiching is my least favorite quilting activity. I've even made coverlets cuz that's one less layer I have to deal with - LOL.

What a great way to use the scraps. I like both sides too, and would love to make backings from my scraps.
