3 Simple HST Quilt Tops

Project Description

What was your inspiration? My scraps speak to me. Actually I cut a lot of my scraps into patches in sizes I frequently use when a given fabric has less than one-fourth yard or so left. HST cut from 10-inch and from 7-inch squares are among my pre-cut patches. When I get enough in colors that I find satisfactory to make a charity quilt I go to work, either making a simple HST quilt top like this or arranging the patches in some more unique design.

Lovely colors found in your scraps. Do you ever take time to quilt for yourself?
AllThatPatchwor answered:
Let's see. I've been actively quilting about 19 years and I've made one bed quilt, about 6 buffet runners, 6 or 8 sets of quilted placemats, two quilts to cover my pressing table (so the cats wouldn't get hair on the cover I use in pressing), and one wall hanging for myself. LOL! That's all. This month I'm back to making some clothes for myself, though, which I haven't done in about 20 years. I've lost a lot of weight (too much) and absolutely cannot find ready-to-wear to fit, so that will be my emphasis for the next few months. They just don't make clothing for women without a derrire.
