Oh Scrap! to check out other scrap busting creations.
I could not resist this fabric when I found it in the clearance bin. It says shine like a diamond. Seemed just too perfect for this quilt.
I should have bought just a bit more though. I had to toss in a random square of black fabric to stretch it all out. I guess I could have worked out the math ahead of time, but it all works out one way or another in the end.
I've folded it all up for now, but it is ready the next time I get an urge to quilt. For now I have essays calling my name. The down side of having more AP students this year is more essays to grade. 40 students times 4 essays each on the last test. I'd better get busy!
I ran this morning, but fortunately it was a fall back week of only 3 miles. While going out for a morning jog on Thursday I tripped on the sidewalk and took quite a tumble. What can I say, I've got grace and skill! Knee, hand and shoulder will all heal, and it was easy to have a new screen installed on my phone. Bending and kneeling to finish up the borders and backing was quite a trick though. Those essays are sounding better all the time.
