Scrap Happy

Yesterday, I  mailed a quilt to my Mom's friend Alex. This gentleman is truly
 a gentleman, he treats my Mom with respect and kindness and jumps
to assist in any way he can.  I recently took on the maintenance of her home.
She does not care to move but does want to deal with all the problems
associated with homeownership.  In a nutshell, I am the new landlady,
 she calls me with problems.  So far all is fine, I am about 4000 kilometers
 away but hey that is just a detail.
Gentlemen are disgusted when you offer payment for work, and I am
talking plumbing...a necessary.  So I made him a quilt as I noticed
he has a threadbare old blanket on his lazy boy. Since I know him to be one of the original
recyclers, I know he will appreciate that this only cost me the postage to send it.
Sew....  made from scraps, quilted with random spirals and circles.
Backed with a flannel back(note to self            directional patterns are not a lot of fun on the back)
from LQS where I had a coupon.  And a pieced wool batt.

Once again the pictures don't do it justice even if I say so myself :))    I hope he likes it.


  1. That's beautiful. I love the colors and the simplicity of it.

  2. love it, what a great Idea. I bet he loves it, too.


I would like to hear from you.
