I thought I'd have time to work on cutting scrappy squares for the sashing of my Pie in the Sky quilt today, but my time was more limited than I expected, and I opted to finish the Schnibbles Canasta quilt instead. I figured because it's also scrappy (since I used leftover fabric from the Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt), it would count for Scrap Basket Sunday. Here's what the finished quilt top looks like--
Our office has been doing a few things over the past couple weeks to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides for Breast Cancer--we always have employees who participate in the annual walk, and this year the Sacramento event will be held on October 20th. I thought I'd quilt this Schnibbles quilt and offer it to the people at the office in a silent auction to raise money for breast cancer. I'm hoping a couple of the attorneys who have a little more spendable income will get interested--and competitive! I'll let you know how it does and of course I'll show you the quilt when I get it quilted.
So, have you hugged your scraps lately?
