Happily Scrappily Red!

Hi There!

Couldn't resist taking yet another
picture of my table runner -
last one, I promise!

You're probably wondering
what's on my design wall, now?

Well, ever since my "Orca Bay Mystery Quilt", and her 2 books that I've since added to my library, I've fallen in love with Bonnie Hunter and her patterns!

In my opinion, she's the Queen of Scraps!

In her book,
"Adventures with Leaders and Enders",
she has a pattern done in scrappy colors,
called "Happily Scrappily Irish".

I've decided to do this quilt with
scrappy reds and whites and ivories....
with a touch of black and
as a lap quilt size.

I've never done an Irish Chain quilt, before
and that's what I LOVE about quilting....
trying something new!

Hope you're all having a great week!
