What do you do
with all the 41/2inch squares you have left over from other projects? You sew them all together of cause, and make yourself a lap quilt for the winter. When I was doing all the sewing, I thought this really was turning out pretty ugly. But what the hell! I was only going to use it myself for the winter, then maybe the cat's could have it too sleep on. But you know now it's finished, I like it quite allot. Can't say it's not colourful.

Oh, it did turn out lovely, didn't it? Makes me think of the ugly duckling story, when the poor thing thought he'd end up ugly all his life and ended up becoming a swan!

Thanks! But maybe it only made it too a Goose.

I just love it! I've always loved quilts made of all sorts of colours! Tthe frames around each block unify the whole thing so well!

VERY nice! =>}

I hate to throw any cut off pieces away. I have bags full of them. One day I will post a photo of a quilt my Nephew and I put together, one week-end from my bits bags..

My Nephew liked it so much he took it home with him. I will get a photo and post it soon.

It's not ugly at all. Very pretty. Plus it's so quilt-y to make a quilt out of leftovers. Very nice

I must admit. I love scrappy quilts. This is one for sure.

You take that back about it not being pretty. I think it turned out lovely. Just lovely. Great job. :)

Thanks Patt. I had about decided to finish this for the cats to sleep on. Then when our heating system went out last week, I thought as I was sitting there getting quite cold. What I needed was a lap quilt too throw over my legs while sitting reading, and this was the finished product.
