Yup, just loads of fun here....Evan has been sick for several days.  He is self quarantining just in case.

I'm making jello and pudding and soap yet again!  Sigh....

My Scrapbusting Mystery Quilt is pieced!!! I guess the name of this - my latest quilt project - is my “Summer 2020 COVID Scrapbuster Quilt”. This is one of the first times I’ve participated in an online project that I began and finished with the original group!!! I love it and it will be mine, Mine, MINE! Thanks Joy Lamphere for creating this pattern and offering to leading us through the mystery project. You are a great teacher!
Details: The fabrics for the strip blocks used were sent to me when I was very ill and hospitalized due to a serious lupus flare. My hospitalization turned out to be for an extended time in the summer of 2008 which culminated with a stroke. A bunch of online quilting friends sent me lovely FQs of florals instead of real flowers. I have been saving them for something special but just stumped as to what. Every time I came across these fabrics in the cupboard I felt bad about not using them as intended. This was the perfect project! I added a few scraps of other florals from previous quilts or other things I’ve made. AND, the best part... it was entirely made with fabrics from my stash! It still needs to be quilted and bound but that’s for another day.

Love the colors!  I would keep it for myself also!!

It turned out great. Now don't put off quilting it cause it's special and deserves for you to use it.

I love how your quilt turned out Judy.  Such a happy quilt - full of warm thoughts from friends too.

Judy I saw this on the facebook page and it is really pretty. I just love the turquoise you used for the border and the star in the center. I have put my quilt to the side for a bit to work on my applique quilt with the leaves, vine and squirrels. I do wan to get back to it but I am trying not to bounce around with projects so much and just need that applique done. I did buy a beautiful denim colored grunge for my mystery and may add some gold grunge fabric to the border and star as well. Just need to finish the other project and then will dive back into this one. I will look forward to a show and tell of these at the next retreat.
