I got to swap scraps with Margaret C and I am so excited with what I got! This is only a small pile I decided to play with today. Notice the New York City scrap in the lower left?
Here it is again. Don't you just love it! I decided I had to use it as my inspiration piece for the first block with these scraps.
Sorry about the poor color. I was using my husband's camera and don't quite understand the settings. I hope you get a sense of great color and fun fabrics Margaret sent me. I pulled all the ones I thought went with the NYC scrap and built this 24" x 24" piece. I like it so much, I may try and find something in my stash and help this grow into a lap quilt. I can see some flying geese to represent the fact that I would have to fly a long way to get to NYC and some friendship stars to represent all the great quilty friends I have made through this site. This might turn into quite the sentimental quilt.
Thanks, Margaret, for all the fun scraps. I can't wait to see what the rest of the box creates!
