Gifts from Abroad

Back in January, Stephie at Dawn Chorus Studio and I were inspired to exchange fabric scraps when we each noticed the other had a QIN {that's quilt-in-need.} Look at those darling foxes, bunnies, and birds. Of course, I got the better half because Stephie also included a couple of her hand sewn circles.

Scraps Abroad

She suggested I use her scraps to bind the quilt but they are too adorable. Wanting to see more of them, I added an insert of the prints on the back.

Stephie's fabric remnants create an insert on the back of this quilt
Just enough to finish off the back with some more saved for future projects. I'm reminded of Stephie every time I look at these.

Enjoy the day, Ann

  5. QIN...another quilt acronym! You two had a great idea. There are a few scraps in that pile and on the back that I'd love to find in my scraps--pretty!

  8. You are lucky to have got your hands on a couple of Stephie's lovely circles in the swap. I like how her bits work in your quilt back too.
