Years ago I was inspired by another quilter who was making one block from the scraps of each finished quilt she made. I thought this was a wonderful idea and set out to make house blocks with my scraps.
I made two.
It became clear that I was finishing quilts too fast for this to be a feasible addition to my process. So I recently decided to finish the house block into a little mug rug.
These particular scraps go back to 2002 when I began quilting. Since the beginning I've been a multiple projects at once kind of quilter. The small lap quilt that these scraps came from was the second quilt that I pieced and the first one that I finished. The quilt was given to my late grandmother and years after she passed away it was given back to me. Here the two quilts are together.
Thank you for visiting!
