2008, 51" x 68"
I designed this quilt pattern after hearing my quilting friends say they didn't know how they would ever use up all their scraps. I designed From Scraps to 12 as a mystery class for one of our Pacific Beach Quilting Getaways. It didn't take long to realize that this is also a great scrap organization plan. This pattern is good for charity workshops and has been used for American Hero Quilt Project, Project Linus Workshops, Harrison Hugs Workshop and several church groups and quilt guilds. This quilt has checkerboard sashing but works well with several sets of blocks just sewn together.
FREEDOM ISN'T FREE and this quilt will be donated to the American Hero Quilt Project(www.americanheroquilts.com) with the quilts going to injured service members in Washington State through Madigan Hospital who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. This 4th of July we fly our flag proudly and thank the veterans, active duty service members and all our Fallen American Heroes. Erwin Harder, 1948 - 1969 and Andrew J. Shields, 1988 - 2008, you are not forgotten.
HAVE A FUN, SAFE AND HAPPY 4TH OF JULY.
