A New Top





Deanna did a tutorial a few days ago for a scrappy quilt that I simply fell in love with.
Since I mostly applique, I really wanted to try something out of my comfort zone.
I used only scraps from my scrap bin, a few mini charms I had and since I did not have enough white fabric I framed the blocks in yellow.
Now to decide how to quilt.
Thanks Deanna for a great tutorial.
