More Scrap Finishes

I thought today I would take the opportunity to share a few more Scrap-A-Palooza finishes.  All of these beautiful quilts have been made using one of the previous month's patterns. Many of you have expressed you really enjoy seeing the different quilts made from the same patterns and I didn't want you to miss out on these!














Sandra over at Musings of a Menopausal Melon made this lovely woven picnic quilt using the pattern we played with in April. You can read more about it and check out her beautiful photos here











Alycia at Alycia Quilts quilted up this wonderful quilt she made using the pattern we played with in March.

Check out the fun quilting she put on it and the promotion she is running on quilting until the end of June.










And Sandra also collected up some of her christmas scraps and made this festive quilt for her adorable grandson.  She used the pattern from February for her inspiration.







To see all the quilts from the Scrap-A-Palooza series, you can check them out on the gallery page.  I am continually amazed at the beautiful quilts that my readers make from thier scraps and I hope you find inspiration in them to sew up your own.


I know many of you have already seen the fabric giveaway I am sponsoring to show my appreciation to my readers, but I also want to share my gratitude to those that have made their own Scrap-A-Palooza quilts.  So Raye, Diann, Julie, Joanie, Jenny, Barb, Sandra, Alycia and Candy I put your names in my cute little Fiesta pitcher and...








while it is hard to read because I wrote in pencil, Alycia is going to get a little gift in the mail!




As soon as I saw Alycia's name, I knew exactly what I was going to send to her.  I pulled some red and blue fabrics from my coveted Robert Kaufman Quilter's Linen collection and a  fun stripe from Red Rooster's Quilts of Valor collection. 

As sewing on a binding is not her favorite part of a quilt, she might even be able to use one of these for the binding on the quilt featured above. 





Why Scrap-A-Palooza?  Because Quilting is more fun than Housework!

The woven picnic quilt is awesome; makes me think of watermelon! Perfect for a picnic. :) How cool to be able to see how you have influence other quilters!

Totally fun and inspiring to see these beauties. Now, if the garden wasn't keeping me busy I'd be in there sewing up a storm!

Yes indeed.
Thank you for sharing all of this today. It inspires me. I have so little time now with the twins (my 91 year old parents) They are doing great but so dependant hahahaha

So exciting to see my quilts on someone else's page besides my own, lol! Thank you for the inspiration and for helping to put a microscopic dent in my ever-abundant stash!! Congrats to Alycia - I have strips cut for that quilt, and keep adding to the pile as I go, so hope to make that one yet too! And thank you for the ongoing cheering you do to spur us onwards!
