I recently posted a photo of a small quilt made by John's great-aunt in the 1920s on a Facebook page.  It inspired a modern quilter to make her own version of the quilt.  See here for that post.

Another Scrap Quilt

I put this quilt in the frame quite a while ago, but only started quilting it today after finally deciding how I wanted to quilt it.  I've been working on a lot of scrap quilts this year, but for some reason my scraps seem to be multiplying.  Oh, well.  More scrap quilts!
