Wintry Finish

 With the freezing temperatures and icy weather, I thought today would be a good day to share a winter themed little quilt.

It is hard to say if this quilt is technically an orphan block or a scrap quilt.  It all started with a few long strip sets I received in a scrap bag.  I decided to sew them all together and them chop them up into 4.5" sections.  The center was very easy to make.  In the scrap bag were also quite a few black 1.5" strips to frame things up nicely.  

There were also some HSTs that I turned into pinwheel blocks for the outer corners.  I needed a small bit of yardage for the border and checked with a friend to see if she had any from this fabric collection.  She had a few pieces, so I was able to cobble together enough for the border.  Thank goodness the buffalo plaid made it easy to hide the seams.

I was also able to cobble together the backing.

The quilt is only about 40 x 45".  But I do love the lodge feel it has.  I am going to send this one as a donation quilt to the hospital.  It can go to a child or maybe a wheelchair bound person that needs a pick-me-up.

So many fun quilts are hidden away in those scrap bags!

BTW - Sunday is Christmas, so I am going to sleep in.  Oh Scrap! will be postponed until the following Sunday (which will be the first day of the new year.). 
Everybody ready with their 2023 RSC blocks?
