It's an Oldie

The nights are getting colder, and I grabbed this quilt out of the closet. I made this quilt in 1996.  The blocks are made totally of scraps.  I got the dark blue used in the blocks at a charity rummage sale.  Someone had donated what are called "cut aways."  Those are scraps of fabrics left over when clothing is sewn commerically.  The assorted white scraps were left over from my sewing.  Many of the centers of the blocks were also left overs from when I was sewing blouses for the summer.  This is a tied quilt, and the backing is pieced from part of a white sheet and some muslin.  I threw the quilt in the dryer and fluffed it a bit.  It is still as cozy as when I sewed it.

Tied quilts/comforters I think are actually a bit warmer than quilted ones, don't you? I have an old flannel tied comfort that is always the one that gets grabbed first. In fact, DH is using it as I type.
