You know that commercial where the lady is looking at the label on cat food and turns up her nose and says "ewwww, chicken by-products".............like her cat is going to be damaged by a little bit of chicken head, or eyeball............... the same cat that would eat a whole mouse in a second, or a lizard, or some weird bug................. I promise you, most kitties think by-products are Yum, Yum!!
Well, I've been thinking about quilts... especially scrap quilts... in a way - they are like by-products... made from the left-over part... So, on that lovely thought, here is what I assembled yesterday from my string scraps:
You will remember these blocks from a few posts ago:

A friend has sent the Quilting Professor a precious gift from Salzburg, home of Mozart; this tiny violin , bow, and case... and, yes, that is a 2.5 inch square it is laying on. It's just adorable. thanks, great friend.
So, the day is just beginning here on the west coast - I must tidy up a bit as the cleaning lady comes tomorrow (lord bless the cleaning lady).... and must work on a couple of charity quilts that need to be finished and sent to their new homes. And, of course.... a bit more work with the by-products to move forward on the lovely yellow flimsy.
Happy Sunday quilting,
