Lady sings the blues:
A few weeks ago I was cleaning my sewing room (never ending job) and I came across all the left over pieces of blue fabrics from my Starry Night quilt I made last year and entered in Harrogate. Normally I would give my scraps of fabric to my friend Lorraine in the liverbirds. I loath to throw anything away especially crafty notions, one crafters rubbish is another crafters treasure and all that. This time I decided to use the scraps myself and make a scrap quilt of my own design. I thought it would be easier to use the medallion method to make my quilt. Once I had got as far as the applique boarder I felt the quilt top was finished so it is a nice lap size quilt. The quilt is called lady sings the blues because I played my favorite songs and I sang along to them as I made this quilt.
