I've decided to start a scrap quilt even though I'm still quilting the wedding quilt on the frame and I'm hoping to finish this week. One of the quilts I quilted this year was a scrap Stacked
pattern is from Scrap Bonanza by Linda Halpin) several years ago.
I hand quilted it because I've been waiting for the right quilt for this border pattern for a long time and wanted to savor quilting it. I thought about quilting the parallel lines on the stacked bricks by machine but then I would have had to baste the quilt. The quilting patttern is from Pepper Cory's Quilting Patterns from Antique Quilts. I think its out of print but if you can get a copy, do.
Here's a close up of some the wacky flowers in this quilt pattern and the next pix will show the chicken (maybe its a rooster). I centered the rooster on all four borders and the flowers/vine flowed around him/her/it.
