More Scrap Strategies!

 I taught my Scrap Strategies class for the Napa Valley Quilters a couple of weeks ago (see that blog here)  As usual I encouraged everyone to bring a 1 gallon zip lock bag stuffed with scraps to share/ swap.   Everyone had a lot of fun pawing through the giant pile of scraps.  You know how it goes;  one persons scrap is another persons treasure!  I always contribute a bag of scraps to this pile and I generally find some goodies to take home and make a charitable quilt or two.
In this case there were a whole lot of nice flannels with some already sewn units.  I just can't resist 'free labor'.  So I started with the pink 'flower' for the center of my medallion and work my design around that.
I did not use all the scraps but I used most of them and I manage to make a small top (35" square) with a few additions from my stash.  I will get this quilted and send it off to City of Hope Cancer center for a child on the pediatric ward.
When Randy was here the other day I finished the blocks for this top.  I think I will send this one to COH too.  Although I'm kinda likin' it a lot!  So bright and cheerful!
Happy Spring!
cheers, Claire W.
