    Cool IQ2 #2 quilt (made from the scraps from IQ2 quilt that seemed to multiply in my sewing room!)

    After Christmas while cleaning my sewing room it sure seemed that my IQ2 Lovely scraps multiplied in force! I had so many 1 inch strips and pieces (since I had to cut down many of the charm squares) and I could not bear to throw them away so I put them in my little scrap bucket. Then one day I looked in the bucket and I immediately thought they looked like Mardi Gras confetti! (purple, green, yellow & black). Remembering Cat M' Bull's comment on Elmer's school glue - how it can be used to stabilize then washes out - gave me a crazy idea for using the scraps!

    I cut them all into snippets and glued them onto some Heat & Bond light that had been cut into the shape of a fleur-di-lis

    then ironed that onto a 10 inch neutral background, repeated this 17 times and set it on point with a black jelly roll.

    ta da! Since they are glued on - will do micro-stippling over the fleur-di-lis when I quilt them to keep them in place after washing. It should also give it a little all-over shabby chic look to the fleur-di-lis.

    No scraps left behind here! LOL!
