Gathering Steam...

and full speed ahead! Gotta make this a very productive year in terms of quilt making *VBS*. Patti has given me permission to post these gorgeous quilts of her's ..thanks Patti! The first one she calls "Leftovers".A closer look will show you that it is, indeed, made of leftover bits. I find it to be both beautiful and intersting.
The second one that Patti made, since her bins weren't empty after ONE....LOL...is called "Spare Parts". These two beauties add warmth, charm and color to Patti and DH's beds in the family camper. One of the nicest things about Orphan Train quilts is that they are EACH one of a kind! Thanks Patti!! for all the inspiration you give us...keep stitching!

Those are both so beautiful! Who knew leftovers could be so inspiring!?

Some fabrics, like soup, are better as leftovers.
Wonderful quilts.

Great quilts from Patti! I have some blocks a few people have sent that I will be putting into quilts soon, too. If I can remember, I'll send pics.

If no one else wants the book after Terry, I'd love to read it.

Just read about the Orphan Train on Marcie's blog and i would love to read it.

Those are neat quilts. I need to get back here and read more.

I just found a stack of blocks made at a quilt retreat in 1995. Now am seeing ways of finishing them off. Great inspiration here.

Cool quilts! It's great what all can be done with "leftovers". I love the tote bag with the trees on it, it's so pretty it's hard to imagine that it was made out of "leftovers". :-)
