    Lovely! Y’know, I think working with the constraints of shortages or trying to use up odds & ends stimulates us to do some of our best work. This piece make that point.

    Shannon J says:

    Thanks again Ladies!! Eeka Mouse.. I think you do have a point about shortages.. it is a lesson that I learned as a quilter.. almost all of my quilts are made from scraps and the scrappier they are the more I love them..
