    Amalgum

    That is what I have named my latest jelly roll race quilt. It is leftover strips from various projects over the last 20 years. Lots of quilts gifted away, now all come back together for the amalgamation of a quilt for us. Lots of stitching memories, and many more to come.

    I love it! And isnt it amazing that you saved all these scraps for so many years and you can still remember the quilts you originally made with them! I think it is fun to go back and revisit old "friends."

      What a great idea. I love using scraps from gifted quilts to make new quilts. There are so many memories sewn in.

        That turned out really nice! It is amazing how we never forget where fabric came from.

          I love it and I am certain you will enjoy it more for the memories.

          When I sewed clothing I kept the scraps. One year, I decided to cut them up into squares. I serged them together and used fabric yardage for the back I didn't care for pieced together. It became our beach quilt. There was no binding, just stitch and flip, and tied with yarn. We still have it, and use it at the beach or if we rent a cottage, it comes along. I remember every pair of boxer shorts, pyjama, dress or top made with each piece, and who got it.

          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

            Love it!

            Bonnie Hunter speaks of how fabric affects our life and how we remember what clothes we were wearing at certain times. When we see those same pieces in our quilt it brings back memories.
