For most of the past few months, my scrap pot has been looking like this:
I also had/still have some fabric of which I have long outgrown/don't know why I acquired it in the first place but don't know what to do with.
How can you use tomatoes, bears dressed up as doctors about to perform an operation, reindeers skiing down mountains, lions with thermometers in their mouths (who thinks up these things?), carrots and sheep walking on crutches. I felt the answer lay in another string quilt.
So this time, the diagonal stripe across each square is my black and white cow hide print of previous quilts. I also measured in approx 1 1/2 inches from two diagonal corners and used the cow print so I've sort of ended up with cow print squares.
For the back I just took two string squares, cut them on the diagonal and sort of did a pinwheel thing with them.
I hand-quilted it, individual square at a time.

It makes me smile just looking at it because it is so happy and fun and all mine.
Thank you Lori.
P.S. First one to correctly guess my house in the header wins a whole wodge of my scraps! (Bit like spot the ball I know but isn't that half the fun?!)
