Scrappy Monday

I had a partial block left from THIS QUILT. It was one a group of us made for Jill while she was sick. 
I had to make 2 corner blocks and one strip of flying geese, but think it will make a nice table topper and a reminder of my dear friend Jill Reid. (I have one of her other published quilts on tap to make later this year) 

And I'm all caught up on Pam Buda's Market Day pieces.

Adventures await me this week. Have a wonderful day!!

  10. Lovely scraps and a wonderful way to remember Jill. I want to make one of Jill's free patterns from Windham too although I do have my Vermont challenge quilt with all our names on it.

  11. You and your friends made a beautiful quilt for Jill. I am sure she treasured it and that it brought her comfort knowing some many were praying and thinking of her. Your block from that quilt is full of scrappiness, love it!! It will be a beautiful table topper and I hope it will bring fond memories of your friend!

  15. Sweet reminder of Jill.
    I keep seeing you post about doing Market Day--and it keeps reminding me that I haven't started it yet. : )

  16. I went back to read the post regarding the quilt that was made for your friend Jill. (Beautful... a real labor of love among friends!) How nice that you had a nine patch block leftover and could finish it into a sweet table topper as a sweet reminder of your friendship. Lovin' those market day blocks!
    Enjoy your adventures... hope you share the stories!

  17. You made good use of the left over part and your piece will be a nice memory of what Jill's friends did for her. I look forward to seeing which of Jill's designs you make later this year.

  20. I did love the quilt you've sent to your friend Jill and I love this little one too. I love how some flying geese are reversed with the lighter colour as the geese and not the background, It makes an entirely different effect. Very beautiful little piece.
