I've decided to share with you the vintage scrap quilts in my collection. Perhaps they will inspire you as you work with your own collection of scraps.
My grandmother was a quilter. She made quilts for the family from scraps leftover from making house dresses and aprons. My sister and I slept under Sunbonnet Sue quilts that Grandma made for us. My quilt was sashed/bordered in green (pictured). Grandma used pink to sash/border my sister's.
Black embroidery stitches accent the appliqued Sunbonnets. And the hand quilting was done by the ladies in Grandma's church quilting group. My sister and I have fun reminiscing about the aprons Grandma made for us when we see certain fabrics in these quilts. And I like to think that I came by my love of scrap quilts by osmosis...sleeping under this quilt as I grew up!
