|Welcome to my Trunk Show of Scrappy Quilts|
Hey everybody! My name is Millie from Millie's Quilting. I'm so thrilled to be posting on this awesome blog. Thanks so much, Madame Samm for inviting me to show a few of my scrappy quilts. In 1990, as a newlywed I visited our local library in Sasolburg, South Africa. It just happened to be the yearly quilt show. I was awestruck by this new form of art I have never witnessed before. Before you take out your calculators to figure out my age I'll just come out and say it. I'm 44 years young.

This is my bin of 1930's fabrics.
Quilting for me is a stress reliever. For this middle block I ran out of the outside orange fabric. Instead of pulling out my hair I decided to be creative and work with it. I added an extra block of fabric which now gives the quilt character.
I use a lot of two and a half inch strips in my quilts and
order them by color. This here is my blue and red strip basket.
I made this red, white, and blue Rail Fence quilt from the strips in the basket.
Another scrappy Rail Fence quilt made with two and a half inch batik strips in warm fall colors.
Another batik quilt in bright summer colors.
I like the purple and teal colors with the yellow and oranges.
I do love traditional quilts, but I also enjoy making modern
liberated quilts. This is my liberated Rail Fence quilt.
I have made so many Roman Stripe quilts as gifts.
This one I kept for myself and I love the pink and green colors together.
I absolutely enjoy quilting circles or swirls. It gives such nice movement to the quilts.
A few modern Log Cabin blocks in blue and green.
