The End is Near!

Well, we made it to the end of another mystery! Congrats to those of you who were brave enough and trusted me to do the mystery right from the beginning. Some of you have been with me from the start. Know that I appreciate your support and your willingness to try my brainstorms. Who ever thought I’d still be doing this! But I still enjoy spreading my scrappiness (is that a word?) around and just trying out new designs and “what if’s”. Besides, who is going to use all these scraps when I’m gone! There’ll be some shaking heads, saying “What was she thinking?!?!” But, if I can encourage you to use up your scraps with me then that’s a good thing!

I hope you had fun and maybe learned a teenie bit. My scraps still continue to multiply no matter how hard I try to tame them down. The scrap fairies seem to work overtime just to keep me going. But that’s ok with me. I LOVE my scraps! And you must too, or you wouldn’t be here! Thank you for sticking with me to make another scrappy quilt with attitude!

Sew without further adieu…….the final clue and reveal.

Handy Dandy Scrap Quilt – Clue #5

18. Make a border using assorted colored 2″ strips cut into random lengths. (I used 2″ x 4 1/2″ and 2″ x 2 1/2″ lengths sewn alternately).

19. Make a final 5″ border using background fabric.

20. Bind with assorted random lengths of 2 1/2″ strips.

And here is my Handy Dandy Scrappy Quilt. I must apologize. I have not completed the quilting yet. Time ran away and life took over but it will be finished in due time. I machine quilted in the ditch around all the blocks and sashing. I still need to fill in the background but I haven’t decided on a design. (Speak to me….Handy Dandy!) There are still some pins doing their basting job until then.

Sew! Until next time………..Happy Quilting!
