Scrap Quilting Club

The scrap quilting club met yesterday so I have a few pictures to show.  This month we made string or crumb quilts and it was time for the big reveal.  No specific pattern was distributed as I wanted each person to create their own setting with the blocks.  Here is a look at the tops we saw yesterday.  I'm sure more will come in next month.  First up is my quilt that will be an addition to my Just Strings Series, Drunkard's Path.  The blocks are 7" finished for a 56" square top.

 Next up is Laura with her string blocks she worked on in class.  She got her blocks completed, sliced them and sewed them back together.  We'll show her completed project next month.
 Kathleen is using her string panel as a border that she will slice and dice.  It will be added to a previous quilt top that we made.  NOTE:  For some unknown blogger blooper, some of the photos that I've rotated will not stay upright when uploaded to blogger.  Please excuse the side ways photos - it's out of my control.
 Kathleen also made this African inspired crumb top.
 Sharon was busy sewing additional crumb blocks in pinks.  She added a few colors here and there as zingers.  It's looking really good.
 Norma used 30's fabrics with a friendship star setting.  It's gorgeous!
 Wanetha's blocks are 6" crumb blocks set on point.  She did a lot of blocks and used a lot of crumbs.  She says she didn't put a dent in the pile.  The border fabric really suits the scraps.
 LeeEtta's quilt is made with the black center sashing in all sizes with odd ball size strips on each side.  The pink and black combination was great.
 Then we had a few more quilts/tops from some of our past sessions ready for viewing.  Judy showed her Strip Tease.  It looks really good with a medium beige instead of white or light beige background.
 Kathleen used green and blue prints in the center strips only and her quilt is really unique.
 Carol is putting together her Split Rail Fence blocks.  She got the top made in class but I'll show that next month.
 Here is Karen's Split Rail Fence top. 
 Karen also has her Strip Tease in which she used a white and black sashing fabric.  It look really good and contrasts perfectly with the jewel tones.
That's it for this month.  Come back next month to see our African Inspired quilt tops.
