"Slim Pickin's", aka "Daybreak"
This is quilt # 4, from the second Box of Scraps given to me some months ago. I have 2 other quilts started, not shown yet, so the box is getting picked over, and by now, I'm having to add bits from my own stash. The inspiration was Bonnie Hunter, from her latest book, and she calls hers "Daybreak". Since my fabric choices from that box are now limited, I named mine "Slim Pickin's". I used scraps in my border where Ms. Hunter used strings. Both ideas served the same purpose. This has been the most fun I've had in years - don't know why, perhaps because I'm feeling very "connected" to those frugal ladies of years ago.
Most of the 4 patches are laid out same direction - a few didn't play the game. 8-)) They are 1 inch square, and the cornerstones are less. I added fabric for the green/tan sashing and the last 2 cream borders.
