Scrappy Logs

This quilts started out as a solution to use up some random strips in more muted colors. I don't use a lot of these colors. Yet once in a while the bin somehow gets full. I guess it's true what they say about scraps multiplying. 
 Ruth quilted it for me.
 My neighbor, Sherry, bond it.
I found out recently that my other neighbor's father had cancer. I felt this was a masculine enough quilt that it would feel at home there. They were thrilled. Glad it found a good home. Hope it brings lots of comfort and hopefully a little healing.

  10. Sometimes a quilt knows what it wants. In this case, the quilt wanted to be a comfort for your neighbor. There's no doubt that he will enjoy it and find comfort in it. It's beautiful, oops no, it's handsome and perfect.

    1. I agree with Mary. This quilt, made from scraps that surprised you with their proliferation, appeared just as the right person needed it. Isn't it amazing how that works? Congrats on a lovely, meaningful finish.

  13. It is a great scrappy quilt. Masculine quilts are a bit tougher to make, I find. This one is perfect!

  14. I love this quilt. I have lots of scraps leftover from another quilt I made mostly in the form of strips. I am in process of figuring out how I want to attack it. This looks like a great solution!
