Precious Stones

Today's finish is called "Precious Stones."  What is precious about it for me is that three of my granddaughters helped pick the fabric.  I set out a big box of 2 1/2" squares out and let them take turns handing me the next piece to add to the scrappy quilt.  A great way to include younger children in quilt making.


The pattern is from The Big Book of Scrappy Quilts.  Elizabeth Dackson is the designer.


I have several pages bookmarked for quilts that I just have to make.  Lol.  When I get a minute.

Currently I am at retreat in Sorrento with a few of my Quilty friends.  Great times and great memories.  And if i am lucky, a few quilt tops pieced.


Carol keeps us on task with a community quilt for the Women's Shelter.  This is this years quilt in progress.  It will be a great gift for someone who I'm sure will put it to good use.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday!
