A Modern Finish!!

A Finish! Yippee!

My local quilt shop High Sierra Quilters 
is a great little store, the owners name is Doug, I call 
him "Dougie", and he is great.  He puts up
with my crazyness and we have a good time.  
One thing he lets me do is dig through his scrap bin thats under the cutting table..I think I am the only customer 
who does this AND checks his trash can for scraps...HA! What can I say, I love me some scraps and I have found some good stuff in there!!  Anyways, one day while
digging through the scrap bin, I found almost a whole quilt
 in there!  He was gonna chuck it out...I told him I wanted it so he gave it to me...check this out!

Its all modern prints, Skyscrapers!!  
Its beautiful, its very "manly".  All I had to do was add the black to the bottom and then the borders.   I then found a great backing at Dougs that went perfectly, and bonus, it was on clearance for 50% off!  Then I quilted it on my Singer 301A with some long wavy lines and bound it in the same fabric as the backing.

TA DA!! Done!!

I think its a great guy quilt, someone is going to love it!  



  1. As they say, another mans trash is a womens art quilt, somthing like that. I think it came out great for a trash piece. Great work, good eye.

  2. Who in the world would throw a whole quilt away without trying to save it? Their loss is definitely your gain!

  3. Wow, great found treasure - it's wonderful!

  4. Wow! Look at you, Mrs. Modern Quilter! LOVE it!!! Nice quilting. What a great manly throw.

  5. Good for you and I'm jealous that you have a 301. I want one too.
