Alyssa's quilt top

This is the quilt top that Alyssa started using the Spectacular Scraps book with half-square triangles. She started it when she was in high school, and she graduated from college in June, so she thinks it is very old. We put the borders on it when I went to LA at the beginning of October. I couldn't figure out how to crop the image with the tools Frank has on this computer.

I had a lot of fun at an estate sale this a.m. I don't feel bad about my stash anymore, and this was the SECOND day of the sale. I bought some wool for Marge, and some cotton shirting fabric, and some Indonesian batik samples. I also bought a nice down comforter for $11 that I am going to wash in the machine, instead of sending to the dry cleaner.

Huguette's Scrap Box

The central 4-patches in these blocks are left over from the quilt in my previous post. The block is based on one I found in one of my old quilt magazines. I really like the block so may try to do it using brights for the 4-patches and monochrome blacks for the larger triangles. I was really impressed with how quickly these blocks went together.
