If you forced me to pick a favorite 'type' of quilt, I would have a hard time just picking one type, but I would have to say I have a special fondness for scrap quilts. To me, a scrap quilt just epitomizes quilting and the entire history of the craft. I love history, I love the intelligent use of making due with what you have and being frugal, and I love how I never have to struggle deciding on what fabrics to use when I make a scrap quilt. I just use scraps with some type of a neutral.
This is Sandy's bowtie quilt from 1997. I am grateful that she has asked me to finish this for her.
The backing is a muslin so the pantograph really shows up nicely on the back. Of course, this quilt makes me want to make a bowtie quilt, too!
