I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Diane, how nice to gift quilts to your family members when you’ve gotten together. Even better to use up scraps. You Tree everlasting quilt is very stunning. 

I recently participated in a mystery Quilt project with another group on this site. I decided to do mine with all scraps or leftover pieces of yardage. The piano keys border took a little longer than I had planned with me trying to ensure pieces were large enough (sometimes piecing them to make them large enough).  I was surprised to have this much red as I didn’t think I used that much red in quilts. I’m still trying to figure out when I used it all. The photo is before I pressed the quilt. It finished approx 67x80. Photo may be sideways.

Diane, thank you!!  Your quilt is gorgeous!!!  Perfect example of another way to do a sampler quilt.

Lynne I love the tree everlasting block! It's an all time favorite and have made it many times. Great way to use up those tiny scrap triangles! I did this one this winter

I keep forgetting to post here! I went to a family picnic in Ill. 2 weeks ago to bid farewell and safe travels to a niece and her family as they prepare to move to Florida. The last time we were all together I gifted quilts to all the ladies, this time I let all the guys (except my hubby and sons) choose. Didn't think about it at the time but it turned out they were all scrap quilts!

This was just a quickie little receiving blanket that I put together a few months ago.  Backed in flannel.  and made with pieced scrappy blocks

Thanks, Cat Lady and Janet!!!  Love using HST's, but this size will be the smallest!!

Comment by Janet/MO on May 4, 2020 at 5:56am

It is beautiful Lynne.

Lynne, using 1" finished HSTs from previous projects definitely makes you a scrap saver! Your quilt turned out lovely.

I've been working on this for awhile.  Set it aside, when I wasn't happy how the trunk was going.  Thanks to what we're going through right now, its a finished top.

The HST's were cut from a previous project and saved.  They finish at 1 inch, and the block finishes at 7 inches.  I used scraps from my  CW stash to do the setting triangles, and borders.  The white is muslin, also left over from previous projects, and its not as white as the picture shows. 

Its lap size,, but will go perfectly on a wall, too.
