I told batagoddess I would post a photo of this little fun… - Scraps & Stitches
I told batagoddess I would post a photo of this little fun quilt, my Nephew and I put together one week-end from my many bags of scraps. I had a bored teenager staying with me, he wanted to know what we could make. So he started digging through these bags and we came up with this.

He did the digging and designing, I just sat at the machine and sewed where he told me too.
This kid is a wonderful artist. I am pleased to say he can turn that artist's eye onto fabrics as well. I very ofter take him with me when looking for fabric's for a new quilt, he has a very good eye for colours..

::contented sigh:: I'm such a sucker for quilts (yeah, yeah, I know that's not late breaking news! ::grins::) I love the colours in this one. It feels very Christmassy, even though it isn't, really. But the colours in the border and the deep forest green feel so cheerful and cozy!

I never would of guessed you liked quilts! These fabrics, well some of them anyway, came from the first big quilt I ever made, and still haven't finished. But yes! They are colours for the fall season, from Halloween to Christmas.

Beautiful - I love all the dark colours and the fabulous mix of patterns.

These colours mostly are left over, from a quilt that I haven't completely finished yet. I only have the top done. I really must get it put together and finished. Some of the pieces he wanted to use were so small, I had to use fancy top stitching to get it to stay together.

That's just beautiful! Exactly the kind of quilt I love the most. A crazy quilt! LOL!

No wonder your nephew just had to have it! How old is he? Just wondering. =>}

I really love the scrappy quilts as well. Nephew is now 23, he would be about 17 when we put this together.

Wow, that turned out just beautifully. What a great project he helped with. He's got a artistic eye, that's for sure. I'm glad you put this up so we could see it. Thank you. :)

Yeah! It turned out great, considering all the fabric came out of plastic bags full of cut off bits. He really is quite the artist, he does allot of pencil drawing, which I love...
