There were still scraps left. This past Christmas my girls got quilts made from the rest of those scraps. 3 1/2 inch scraps alternated with muslin. My friend Katheryn Crickenberger started the pieces maybe 15 years ago. Before she died, she handed me a bag with about five sections of piecing In August (2011) I pulled the pieces out and re-worked them into two queen sized quilts.
The scrap saga goes on and on. I still save the leftovers. I always will. I have great ideas for using them. I will get to them. As I cut up the scraps left from a quilt or sewing project, the pieces bring back memories. Lots and lots of the best memories life has to offer.
I wish the same for you. ~~~Rachel
